Educational Eavesdropping episodes offer webinar-style resources, guidance, and food for thought from experts in the field. Listen in on conversations about relevant topics between practitioners, researchers, and community members.
This presentation is sponsored by Indiana University’s Office of School Partnerships and IU High School.
In this episode of Educational Eavesdropping, Rebecca Itow, IU High School Principal and Adjunct Professor in the School of Education at IU Bloomington facilitates an overview and discussion of what to expect in an online course setting and why learning in digital environments feels so foreign. We will examine four major areas of concern: (a) Is online learning as valuable as brick and mortar learning?; (b) How can teachers, students, and families build meaningful educational relationships and support systems if they cannot see each other?; (c) How do we know students are learning?; and (d) What does learning look like online and how does this differ from our conceptions of brick-and-mortar learning environments?
