Hi
I read in some discussions and news that even substitute teachers has to work remote .
If the assignment shows online ,we have to log in and take virtual class .

I am thinking of that scenario if my school dist start it by September .

I am very bad technology person and old schooled .

Can any one suggest ideas what we can prepare and learn in the summer time ?I mean any online tools or something .

May be if someone do long term job now or acquainted with those who did virtual class these shut down days ,knows more .

Please share for all of us .
That will be lot helpful .

Thank you all .

I am concerned about the same thing.

I do not even know how to post you tube videos to forums, or how to create an avatar.

Do the contracted teachers need to use their own private computers, or do the districts provide computers?

I hope the districts will provide us with computers to be exclusively used for virtual teaching instead of having us use our own private computers. Mine is seven years old.

Teachers get to use school provided laptops. Be sure you have reliable internet too. The best way to learn about teaching tools for online learning is YouTube. There are so many good channels (videos) available on YouTube. You can start with “How to use Google classroom”

Why would they need subs if the parent(s) is home? Oh, that's right , we're the babysitter if the parent needs to leave.

Have you guys read the new, watered-down CDC guidelines for schools to open? My school pretty much already qualifies. Now I know why they were able to give us a start date (Aug. 7) and a schedule for the entire next year, which looks just like a typical year.

Bodhimom, as soon as I saw your message I looked it up...


Sooo, are schools really going to able to screen everyone upon arrival and keep tabs on everyone?

No face mask required for students nor staff either?

It just advises to promote it and see if it feasible...

(I wear my mask because I am considerate of you and your loved ones, You wear your mask because you are considerate of me and my loved ones)



Encourage social distancing?

wow
We must want a covid-19 round 2 and it will be that much harder to recover from that...

China is already experiencing a major new outbreak of Covid-19. We should be proactive and heed the warning this time.

I'm guessing that since the economy is tanking and many people in the US seem unwilling to follow guidelines about quarantine, social distancing, and masks, the govt. officials are now caving. ( It's coming down to herd immunity or perish. ) Remember too, it's an election year. This whole pandemic issue has become nationally and globally politicized, like it or not.

I think we as individuals each need to be wise and use good sense, bottom line. If the schools reopen and resume in-class instruction in August, with lax protections, and you don't feel safe about going back, then don't. We're talking about your health and your life here.

Sweet, I'm not sure if your being sarcastic, or not.

The part about screening, all I could think of is that they take the temp of every student first thing in the morning. Like how 1st period is one minute longer because of the announcements. Maybe 10 minutes longer, for temp checks. I don't know what else it could be, except that and ask if anyone feels sick.

I know I was surprised at how it was all so general, too.

I couldn't give you guys the link because I saw it in t.v.

Thinking the struggles in front if school opening ,I am undecided whether to continue or not .

With low pay and no benefits ,is it worth to take all trouble ?
Protecting ones own health is priority than any thing else rt ?
Undecided now thinking all these .

Maybe just take off the first semester, and see what happens. You can always reapply, if they even make you jump through those hoops, at all. Maybe if you explain it to them, they will let you take time off without having to reapply.

Heck, in one district, here, you only have to sub one day every two years to stay on their list!

Oh no bodhimom, no sarcasm here, just really surprised at how bare bones the guidelines are.

Thank you for your insight in how that might look like at schools.

Luvtoteach, NO China has not been seeing any huge spikes. Today the ENTIRE COUNTRY only had 11 NEW cases. I strongly suggest going straight to the CDC websites for real time info, rather than mainstream media sources. The entire country of China only has a total of 83 active cases as I type this. Look at the real data online. Here is a great informative link.
https://www.worldometers.info/corona...country/china/

There are even some other countries approaching ZERO active cases. With these facts, we can be very optimistic about an in person school year this Fall. FYI, the death rate of COVID is around 1% (so you have just as much chance dying in an accident driving to work). Those of you who have Math backgrounds know this to be true.

There is no talk about subs working remotely online with students in my state. That sounds impossible, especially if we do not know the content to cover. (I.e. advanced physics)My state (NJ) is planning on some type of in person learning this Fall.

Online subbing

I'm not even going to attempt online subbing. Not worth the headache to me. They can use other teachers, in my book.

The biggest difference, I can foresee, is students only physically going to school 2 or 3 days a week.

I wouldn't believe anything that China says, but I do think school will be going back and I do see a need for physical subs.

I just looked at my school's website. It says that they are excited about the POSSIBILITY of opening in August, with students in seats. It said that as soon as they knew something, we would know it.

virtual subbing

I am in Arizona. This is what I have heard for upcoming year.

Split days (I sub for high school)

Half of class goes to school either monday, tuesday or thursday, friday. This is to make sure of social distancing. Wednesday is online class from home. So if you go to school for two days, I am thinking their is reading and hw material for other two days.

I am not sure a sub is needed in the above scenario. Concerned for my job.
