This article will read like review for a lot of people, but it's still a good overview of what the authors say are "best practices that educators know are integral to productive learning and growth." In particular, the strategies recommended are (paraphrased):
- communicating expectations, including setting schedules for learners
- developing a classroom community and building relationships
- showing visuals, including models of completed work
- including hands-on resources
- scheduling breaks, and asking students to stretch, dance, or stand
- checking in with students and offering focused support
These together offer "engaging, productive and meaningful distance learning," say the authors. I think they are useful as guidelines, but should not be followed word for word.
