Future of E-Learning: How to Perform Instructional Interventions While Coping with the Coronavirus Pandemic

 

Teachers are perceptive. They know which of their students need a little boost when doing equations or who will spend extra time with a book. That’s become a much taller task, however, with education forced out of the classroom and onto the web because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Instead of individual instructional interventions, school-wide interventions may be needed with many students not getting the hands-on learning they need to master objectives taught in the final quarter of the school year.

“We’re missing two and a half months of critical instruction time. End-of-the-year instruction is critical for kids. That’s when a lot of those more difficult standards are taught,” said DeAn Jeffrey, a Strategic PD Specialist with IStation. “Without intervention support systems, students who were struggling when we left school are only going to be further behind.”

One of the most difficult challenges is figuring out how to start the new school year, namely whether it’s safe to bring students back to the physical building or if education is still going to take place remotely – especially with many students not undergoing end-of-year evaluations.

“I really think that is the tough one, because how do you remotely get the data you need to determine where you need to start with them? I think that’s the struggle a lot of districts and schools are working on right now. How are they going to get the data they need?,” said Ginger Brawley, an IStation Strategic PD Specialist.

It will take time to figure out how to get students up to speed, but there are resources – like those provided by IStation – that can help both students and their instructors limit regression and get as close to that irreplaceable in-classroom experience as possible.
