These town halls have been very helpful!
I agree, Mina!
Karine, if you are here again this time--last time, at the very end of the Town Hall, you had typed that you are worried that your students' parents are dong the work (the typing) for them during this distance learning time. I do not know if my response was seen before the Town Hall ended I wrote that I am having my students read their sentences to me after they have typed them. (My learning management platform is Seesaw.)
For now, this will be Clever’s last Town Hall session. But let’s continue supporting each other and problem-solving as a community. Join the 100+ people in Clever’s Community on Slack: https://bit.ly/2JruVCJ
I do not know what Slack is. Is it a social media platform?
Great question, Mina! Slack is a group chat app, similar to Microsoft Teams. Think of it as this webinar’s chat, but available 24/7

Katie is AMAZING!

Sounds like a lot of districts are starting to think about summer school. Use the Zoom Q&A module to submit your questions around summer school so we can discuss further during the Q&A portion of this session.
Here’s a link to Tucson Unified School District resources for school closures: http://www.tusd1.org/COVID-19
Some teachers are spending a tremendous amount of time on the computer. messaging with families or doing videoconferences with families. Due to the parents' work schedules, some teachers are in communication with families from 7 AM to 10 or 11 PM; some students turn in their remote learning homework after midnight
Tucson USD - tusd1.org/Current-Families and tusd1.org/LearnFromHome are the sub pages of the COVID 19 site
Counseling and social workers have been doing great reach out to families.
If your district isn’t able to provide families with tech support, https://schoolclosures.org/ offers families text/phone tech support - staffed by volunteers!
Working from home also = social distancing
I hope that moving forward, school districts, the learning management systems, and remote learning platforms take into account some participants needing closed captions for _everything_ that is being presented virtually so that they can also be full participants in this digital world
