Curious how you did Best Plus 2.0 remotely -- I did an adhoc system using 2 laptops and a cell phone
Victoria Neff
47:29
Very cool to hear about the expert Help Desk! Would love to hear more. How is that facilitated? And what have been some of your learnings in being able to provide tech support remotely to programs.
Michelle Leduke
49:16
Are all learners taught how to do distance learning, as a rule or just students who can't get to a school?
Jeff Goumas
49:44
Great point! We need to be prepared to scale up service provision.
Anson Green
54:21
Michelle: We offer distance learning (NRS definitions/ proxy hours) to all students and now all students are also going remote for direct hours
Nestor Rodriguez
54:45
Hi
Michelle Leduke
54:46
Anson Green thank you. That's critical, isn't it.
Anson Green
56:04
Over 6 years of data show students in hybrid (DL and direct) perform SUBSTANTIALLY better than DL or direct alone. (More overall contact time and time for practice at times that work for them)
Michelle Leduke
58:04
Anson Green do you have a citation? I would like to look at that.
Jen Vanek
58:09
Other states show the same thing, Anson. Now to have blended but completely at a distance.
Jen Vanek
58:26
a new challenge to get everyone online toether
Jen Vanek
58:49
Hey everyone - we’ll be posting a link to the webinar recording. Will email you, too.
Mahalia Baldini
59:13
We (Texas) also make sure to discuss the hybrid outcomes with our Grantees to help them understand the importance of developing the hybrid model. Data speaks volumes! Big shout out to Lori Slayton on our team for being diligent in working with local DL Leads.
Victoria Neff
59:19
Love that use of Loom!
Asomgyee Pamoja
59:42
Thanks Jenn, that would be helpful and useful.
Joan
59:50
Great idea to use Loom for new additions
Jennifer Kluempen
01:00:05
How common is this kind of support in other states? I'm amazed at all that is offered, the training for teachers in particular, the funding and tech support.

Jen Vanek
01:02:39
@ Jennifer - yes. TX does great work. Data drive work. Their PD is based on what they see in student outcomes data.
Jen Vanek
01:03:07
and of course TCALL is very innovative and provides comprehensive support for teachers
David Rosen
01:03:39
Anson, this may be premature, but perhaps not. Do you have thoughts about what adult basic skills education will look like when Texas allows teachers and students to return to the classroom? Are you planning for social distancing in the classroom? Teacher and learner masks? Thoughts about a hybrid or blended approach in all programs? Other thoughts?
ashly winkle
01:05:05
I think so
Jacqueline Vulcano
01:06:25
Is the Tech Integration Coaching program available to anyone or just Texas instructors?
gina fraser
01:06:52
wow so cool. whats the name? id love to take it
ashly winkle
01:07:27
I would love to share and collaborate with others!
Joey Lehrman
01:07:42
YES! Exploring that badging system would be very helpful!
DEBRA HARGROVE
01:08:33
I predict hybrid will happen on all :-)
David Rosen
01:09:58
Thanks Anson
David Rosen

Thanks deb
Joey Lehrman
01:10:34
Thanks, Anson! What a great example of proactive state-level and program-level leadership with an emphasis on consistent communication and support. Very impressive!
Victoria Neff
01:11:03
We can hear you great!
kelly Close
01:11:48
Great tool!
Ebony Vandross

Ashly's Wakelet: https://wke.lt/w/s/P2mJnX
Ebony Vandross
01:13:38
Wow, this is awesome!
DEBRA HARGROVE
01:13:59
Joey, Anson and his team have been in constant communication with the field. It's been crazy. We've all become one big family and, while we're exhausted, we see the benefits and results by hearing success stories. It's so gratifying in a time when we don't have much control over anything else.
DEBRA HARGROVE
01:15:15
that's COOL!
Michelle Leduke
01:15:33
Do students need to make an account to interact effectively with Wakelet?
Anson Green
01:15:46
Love the immersive reader! How powerful.
MaryEllen DeVore
01:16:33
Jeff Gumas for President!
Jen Vanek
01:16:47
He has my vote.
See Moua-Leske
01:16:56
Mine too!
DEBRA HARGROVE
01:17:34
Hi Phil!!
Victoria Neff
01:18:18
These are such amazing features. Are they all options in the free version of Wakelet?
Michelle Leduke
01:18:22
Do students need to make an account to interact effectively with Wakelet?
Anson Green
01:18:27
Wow! so a great way to share presentations.
Jennifer Kluempen
01:19:23
What kind of training or support is needed to help students learn to use a wakelet?
Jeff Goumas
01:19:54
It’s a great tool for teaching students to organize information … for themselves for presenting information to others.
Michelle Leduke
01:20:37
Thank you
Anson Green
01:21:36
This supports learning modalities you really can't recreate in a brick and mortar class.
Jennifer Kluempen
01:21:37
This is only synchronous then? The students don't do it on their own?
Jen Vanek
01:21:55
That’s what I understand to be true, Jennifer
MaryEllen DeVore
01:22:00
It could certainly be asynchronous.
Jennifer Kluempen
01:22:24
Are you using Zoom to teach with the wakelet?
Jennifer Kluempen
01:24:14
Thank you so much.
DEBRA HARGROVE
01:24:45
WOW, I didn't know that
Claire Gilliam
01:24:53
That is amazing!
Maryalice Guilford
01:24:58
Can you use it on Macs?
Michelle Leduke
01:25:45
Wow!
Jen Vanek
01:25:55
Yes! I love Flipgrid!
MaryEllen DeVore
01:26:30
I am cursed to see typos!
Anson Green
01:26:43
I'm envious! I want to teach again and use this tool!
Denise Guckert
01:26:54
immersive reader is also an app and a chrome extension
Kathleen O'Connell
01:26:55
Are you sending your remote students the artices to read on their own after your Zoom sessions?Have you taught your students to use the Immersive reader?
AnneMarie Molinari-Sanders
01:27:07
Hi everyone. TRAIN PD @ TCALL has a webinar series titles Tech and Tell. Teachers present one-hour live webinars for teachers so they can learn about tech tools just as Wakelet. Ashly presented two Tech and Tells on Wakelet.
Denise Guckert
01:27:30
natural reader is also a chrome extension that works on websites that helps students with reading issues
Lori Krane
01:28:26
What is Actively Learn?
Gareth Wingfield
01:29:18
It also has reading tools and provides definitions for words students highlight.

The pro version is good for tracking time students are on and active but the rest is just baked in the free version.
