CAS asked a selection of teachers with experience of remote education to share hints and tips for using synchronous and asynchronous learning technologies. The response from the educators was incredible and is summarised in our guidance documents below:
The guides provide practical advice on a range of topics, including content delivery and increasing engagement in learning. Guidance is also available on setting expectations within online learning environments and how to manage technology failure during digital remote education.
At the start of the pandemic, Jane Waite, Teacher Trainer and Researcher at Queen Mary University London, created a list of links to remote education resources in conjunction with the CAS community. She has also created a resource which includes information on research and pedagogy related to emergency remote education.
The NCCE offers support for the remote education involving computing, including general guides for all teachers delivering remote education, subject-specific advice and resources and help in developing a curriculum implementation plan. Visit the Teach Computing website for more information.
Finally, getting started and online safety guides for communication and collaboration technologies, can be found within the Connect with others page of the CAS Home Learning area. Whilst many sections of the press have focused on the negative aspects of these communication technologies, remote education expert Holly Billinghurst has recently outlined how educators can safely teach online.
