Launching TeacherLAB: A learning space for teachers
On Monday, June 1st, 2020 we are launching TeacherLAB an interactive learning platform exclusively for teachers powered by CanopyLAB.
COVID-19 has hit us educators like a shockwave. Overnight all of our routines and social relations have been disrupted. The physical infrastructure we once used to create learning experiences has been closed, and we have been forced to start using a series of new digital tools at an unprecedented pace. The educational model and the way we teach have been transformed more since the onset of 2020 than the past 100 years combined.
While students, coordinators, and principals each work to define and adjust to this “new normal” it is our experience that many of you, teachers, have been left fending for yourselves.
While students, coordinators, and principals each work to define and adjust to this “new normal” it is our experience that many of you, teachers, have been left fending for yourselves. Some have been asked to work using very specific digital platforms and tools that you have never received training in, while others have received no instructions at all. Some teachers still wait patiently for the ability to offer their students learning opportunities online and finally, we cannot forget that many have been forced to abandon their students altogether because the students simply are not connected to the Internet.
The ripple effect of COVID-19 is that we get to reexamine and redefine who we are as teachers. Through TeacherLAB we empower you to own your new role through a series of courses made by teachers for teachers.
Through TeacherLAB you will have access to 10-course series, that are differentiated from a basic level, an intermediate level to an expert level which mirrors the level of digital maturity and competencies of the target audience
- Introduction to remote teaching
- Working with new tools
- Student engagement
- Analytics, assessment, and grading
- Digital literacy & future of skills
- New and emerging technologies
- Methodology, pedagogy, and skills
- Future of school and learning
- Advocacy & Agency
- Data, security and basic legal insights
TeacherLAB is free of charge for teachers from schools that use one of CanopyLAB’s learning solutions. Are you not a teacher at a Canopy School? You can still access some of the courses free during COVID-19. Sign up today.
