In October 2020, Hendy’s Jeremy Abarno and Erica Murphy led a webinar on identifying emerging best practices in remote instruction. This interactive session included teachers and leaders from state departments of education, large and small school districts, charter management organizations and supporting organizations. The session focused on two key strategies for remote instruction – student engagement and differentiation. Through instructional videos and conversation, the presenters emphasized the interrelated nature of these two strategies. Differentiation leads to greater engagement and greater engagement allows for effective differentiation. This cycle is self-reinforcing and leads to better outcomes for students.
A recording of this webinar is available to you now. We’ve also compiled a list of strategies for remote engagement and differentiation. We hope these resources will help you continue to improve your practice of remote instruction. If there are additional engagement or differentiation strategies that have worked well for you, pleases let us know.
