Remote Instruction Resources

During this time of uncertainty the Alisal Educational Technology department remains committed to supporting all teachers in our school district, and all educators who visit this website in the practice of remote instruction. Since our school district uses Google for Education and Seesaw For Schools, many of the resources and tutorials here feature those tools, however, not all of them. You may feel free to use, borrow, and modify with attribution anything you find on this website.

20 - 21 Year Opening Convocation

To open the school year our superintendent Jim Koenig, the members of the board, and the leaders of our certificated and classified unions each presented inspiring opening messages.

We were also blessed to have students who were alumni of the school district that have gone on to great successes come back and remind our teachers what we are working for with their life stories.

The Four Factors of Remote Instruction

Since we are all new to remote instruction, we leaned on Jody Green and Dr. Tim Green (CSUF) to establish a simple schema for our teachers start building their conceptual understanding of where to begin. Our teachers found it very helpful and we are leaning on this to guide our actions and thinking.
