Learning from Home
The Learning from Home area of our website is here to support rural teachers as we all learn ways to provide distant learning opportunities for our students. This work feels a little like “building the plane while in flight.” We’d love to hear from you if you have suggestions for this area of our website or want to share effective or impactful practice. We’ll make every effort to be responsive. 

Let me offer a few thoughts as I stand one step outside of the implementation
circle.
  • Based on what you know about each student’s learning gaps find ways to focus on those.
  • Keep things SIMPLE but effective.
  • More than ever it’s important to have clear answers to:  
    • Why should my students do this task? (PURPOSE)
    • What will they learn or what learning will be consolidated by doing this task?
    • How does this link to curricular outcomes?
  • Carefully consider the resources you are using! There is a lot out there and not all things are created equally.
In my years as the Director of mRLC, I have come to know and appreciate the rural teacher disposition – willing to learn and willing to share.

Tools and Resources provides materials developed by our network participants that have been tested in the field and found useful. We share freely and only ask that you give acknowledgement for the source. Select resources from other providers are also posted with permission.


Research Projects is a limited-access location for participants in research projects. They can login to particular projects and get access to archived and current materials, as well as updates.


Learning Networks is a limited-access location for participants in this year’s learning networks. Once they login, they may see materials, slideshows, and updates that facilitators have shared.


What We are Learning outlines ideas that are surfacing through our research projects and networks. We collect feedback from our participants and work with outside researchers to provide reviews of our work.
