Unique in its focus on K-12 learning, this book shows educators how to transform their teaching as they move from traditional face-to-face classrooms to online settings. Taking into account what teachers know about effective traditional classrooms, Kerry Rice guides the reader step by step through the change showing how familiar concepts, such as setting the tone, building community, course design, lesson planning and assessment, must be re-examined in the context of the online classroom. With the simple premise that teachers need practical information to move beyond traditional practices, it provides an overview of the key principles of effective online instruction, emphasizes the power of the learner-centered approach, and discusses the technology tools that make online delivery and design possible. Filled with checklist, guidelines, vignettes, and sample lessons, the book guides educators through the changing landscape of education as they make the move to K-12 online teaching.
