Remote Teaching & Leading Practices
For over a year educators across New York City have reimagined support for our students and teachers in the remote & blended learning environment. Teachers have taken an asset-based approach and experimented with solution oriented “how might we” questions, pivoting the ways they deliver content and assess student learning in the remote & blended context.
This hub will serve as a living resource for teachers throughout the city to support learning and innovation as we all continue to develop our practices in a remote & blended environment.
Below, explore the resources generated by teacher led panels, think tanks, round tables, and more.
Review the guidance materials at the bottom of this page to share how you pivoted your practice during the past year.
We encourage all NYC educators to contribute to this learning
