Students, parents and teachers around the globe scrambled from March through June, doing their best to finish out the 2019–2020 school year. Without any formal education in how to conduct classes virtually, teachers were suddenly left to figure out how to meet the challenge of teaching remotely — struggling with new technology while trying to teach. There was little process in place, and consistency and quality of delivery varied greatly from teacher to teacher and school to school, creating inequities for students.
What’s more, for children in grades K–2, caregivers are having to act as teachers, too, requiring our teachers to "teach by proxy,” usually without the benefit of being trained in how to teach adults. In addition, most K–12 teachers are not necessarily proficient in the virtual technology and online tools available to them. And now, many teachers are being asked to teach in a hybrid model — educating in-classroom and at-home students simultaneously — without guidance on how best to do it.
