School’s Out: What’s Working in Remote Learning?

With remote instruction now nearing the three-month mark, there is growing interest in assessing and sharing what works and how to broadly implement best practices

What have we learned about remote instruction and learning? What techniques and modes of teaching have gained traction with educators — and students? And how might it look going forward, finishing this year and going into the next?

On June 11, NJ Spotlight and NJTV News hosted a virtual roundtable, bringing together the perspectives of educators and families to talk about successful models and practices for engaging their children’s remote instruction.
