The Simple Online Classroom

Who is Emily

My first job teaching was at a hybrid school in Minnesota and I remember thinking to myself, "No one taught me how to teach online!" 

6 years later and I am still working at that school and I can't even imagine working anywhere else! ❤️ 

Now, I’ve taken my years of experience and turned it into an easy-to-follow system that any teacher can use to create a digital classroom that excites and engages their students and makes teaching fun again!

Reflections from Online Teaching: aka Keep, Throw, Bring Back

Have you ever heard of the game F*%@, Marry, Kill? Basically, you are given the name of 3 people like Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, Ryan Reynolds, and Hugh Jackman. Then you need to choose which one you would F*%@, which one you would marry, and which one you would kill.

Today, we are playing a similar game, but we are doing it distance learning style so we are doing Keep, Throw, Bring Back!


Teaching Technology to your Students (It's not just for Tech Class anymore!)

You give students directions and plenty of time to work and when things are just wrapping up a student asks, “What were we supposed to be doing?”

The solution here is explicitly teaching students about the technology you are using. Give them a tour of your learning management system. Show them how to “Make a Copy” of a Google Doc. Have them learn technology vocabulary! 


Student Choice in the Online Classroom

Teachers seem to be trying everything they can to make online learning engaging and help students learn. One way to give them ownership is to give them choice and one of the best and easiest ways to do that is with choice boards! 

So, a choice board is great because it lets students decide how they want to demonstrate their knowledge on a topic. You can do this with any lesson in any class. You might be surprised at how great the ideas they come up with are!
