3. Provide Clear Expectations
4. Have Technology & Content Knowledge

Join us to talk about how providing clear expectations to students in our online environment starts them on a path to success. Gaining technology knowledge, whether it's navigating the SchoolsPLP dashboard or learning how to connect with students virtually, allows us to become more effective online educators. Becoming more knowledgeable about course content helps us to better support our students in their learning.

As educators, there are so many roles we take on or count on to support our students while they learn! Whether we are graders, computer lab monitors, teachers, mentors, counselors, administrators, technical troubleshooters, or even parents, each role we play is an important part to helping our students be successful in their online learning!
