Join NYSCATE Corporate Council member Florida Virtual School (FLVS) at 11 am ET on May 19 for the third and final part of FLVS's three-part webinar series on the best practices in creating an online learning environment for teachers and students.  

COVID-19 impacted our world specifically the way students learn, and teachers teach. As educators, we are charged with re-imagining education and creating an online learning environment that puts students at the center. In this 3-part webinar series, we will explore the building blocks of online learning and focus on how the relationships we form with students impacts every aspect of their online learning experience. All three sessions will feature two topics, an interactive discussion, and activities.

Session 3 – A Mystical Concept: All Students Working and All Teachers Balancing Work and Life, will wrap up our discussion and focus on how to use progress monitoring to track student progress and how to implement work-life balance strategies that prevent teacher burnout.
