    Effective Practices for Learning Online

    Health & Wellness

    Building Social Relationships

    Join us as we explore how to engage and maintain social relationships while we continue to physically distance from one another.  We will speak about the importance of relationships in our family and how to encourage children to make connections outside of the home that are meaningful.  Social interaction is a vital part of helping us feel connected to one another and to our community.  

    Coping with New Ways of Living

    COVID-19 has brought drastic changes to the ways we live, learn, work, and interact with our families, friends, and communities.  This seminar will review how families can manage new routines and adjust to the changes that this pandemic will continue to bring. 

    Anxiety in the Time of COVID-19

    The COVID-19 pandemic and related losses, disruptions, Baker & Uzar and stressors have had major effects on our mental health. This seminar will provide strategies for coping with feelings of stress and anxiety for guardians, as well as the ways we can support the young people in our lives as they navigate their own worries about the pandemic.

    Let’s Get Back to School

    In this seminar, I will share some tips to help you and your Slacin family get ready to start the school year. From getting back to healthy sleep schedules, creating a productive home work space, making schedules and more; we’ll talk about some of the challenges kids and parents face in these difficult times and ways to make it easier.

    Technology 

    Google Classroom - LMS

    This seminar will review the basics of Google Classroom to help you support your child navigating the platform.  What is Google Classroom?  It is an online platform that streamlines and organizes digital learning.  The seminar will review the four sections of Google Classroom - Stream, Classwork, People, and Grades.

    Expectations and Structures of Blended Learning 

    This workshop is designed to provide parents/caregivers D’Ambola with additional information about blending virtual learning with in person instruction.  Additional information will be provided about schedules, routines, and expectations for virtual learning.  

    Effective Practices for Learning Online

    There is no “one size fits all” method of learning online that meets the academic and social needs for children.  Learn about research-based best practices for both synchronous and asynchronous methods of teaching that staff members will be incorporating into their instructional approaches for students in grades preK-8.
