How can I use Better World Ed for virtual / remote / at-home learning? (And how can students join a lesson virtually?)
Are you a teacher, school, or school district eager to use Better World Ed with your students in a virtual / remote / learn-from-home setting?
Let's dive in to two scenarios:
During Class Time:
Using a video-conferencing tool (like Zoom, Google Meet, or Skype) with your students or your school's LMS, share your screen with your group.
Log in to your account before class, and you can share the videos, stories, and lessons with your students through screen sharing. Be sure to be careful and informed if using a tool like Zoom ( read more).
The lesson plans often include activities or breakout discussions that involve small groups. These sessions are great in person, though also can work very well virtually. Check out this doc from Zoom to get ideas on how you might approach tweaking your lessons to fit your virtual learning environment goals.
Beyond Class Time:
If you want your students to be able to access Better World Ed content outside of your class time, each student will need an account.
Please don't hesitate to reach out to us with more information about your specific situation, and we can work together to figure out a workable and affordable solution to ensure you and your group can access the curriculum.
We can provide discounts to you, your school, or your district to create logins for your students to be able to access the content outside of class time. Please note that students will also have access to the lesson plans you have access to, if you choose to sign students up as well.
