For many educators, teaching remotely was unfamiliar territory especially adapting a large number of ed-tech tools to their context and class. Yes, any teacher can watch a Youtube video and learn how to use Google Classroom, but how do they use it effectively to teach the second grade? Do you know how to use Zoom to record classes and then share them securely with a class?
There are a lot of questions out there about how to effectively teach online and while school districts have tried their best to address emergency response needs, it was not enough. Teachers needed additional support as they juggled learning, teaching, and taking care of their families.
GetSetUp was uniquely positioned to help there. We were already providing remote live training on online tools and apps geared towards the 50+ demographic. When the pandemic crisis hit, we had a solid core team of retired educator ‘Guides’ to help onboard customers on complex tools like CRMs, Slack, Google Docs, and Zoom. So when we offered the opportunity to our Guides to help current educators, the response was overwhelming.
Through a partnership between GetSetUp and The Learning Accelerator, we established an educator-to-educator live training program where teachers could join one of our 10 interactive sessions running daily on the tools necessary to plan, connect, and provide instruction to support students with online learning.
Below were some of the questions and use cases we gathered from the 1–1 and group classes.
