A quick note: The Stan­ford Online High School–an inde­pen­dent high school that oper­ates ful­ly online–has cre­at­ed video tuto­ri­als designed for schools that may need to close class­rooms and piv­ot online. “All guid­ance is plat­form-agnos­tic, focus­ing on the essen­tial steps for prepar­ing to teach online in a short peri­od of time.”

In addi­tion to this videos, the Online High School will host a free webi­nar today at 2pm Cal­i­for­nia time. You can reg­is­ter here and learn more about the tran­si­tion to online teach­ing.

Note: Zoom–which pro­vides a turnkey video con­fer­enc­ing solu­tion–has made its prod­uct free for K‑12 insti­tu­tions dur­ing the COVID-19 cri­sis. This can help schools spin up online cours­es quick­ly. More on that here.

    The miss­ing ingre­di­ent, of course, is some way to receive all this information/instruction. How use­ful is one tele­phone? Not very. You need *two.* Prefer­ably more but at least two.

    The students/families who need this the most, those who can least afford to miss instruc­tion, are the least like­ly to have a way to access online edu­ca­tion. Districts/school sys­tems that offer it are like­ly based in areas with­out that pro­nounced a degree of inequal­i­ty. But that’s not uni­ver­sal.
