From In-Person to On-line Learning in a High School Classroom
April 30 @ 12:00 pm - 12:50 pm EDT
Being with high school kids in-person as they are exploring and learning is quite a wonderful experience. They have such energy and curiosity and see the world from all sorts of interesting angles. Even though we are in-person for my IT classes, we use several on-line tools to learn as supplements to what we do in the classroom. The combination of in-person interaction while learning on-line tools is quite powerful. Nothing replaces face-to-face interaction – until it must be replaced. Since early March, teachers across the Commonwealth of Virginia have been working under the guidance of school districts and the state board of education to figure out how to move school from in-person to on-line. By the time I give my talk, we’ll have been doing on-line school for just a few weeks. I’ll let you know how things are going and the role that on-line tools are playing – both good and not so good.

My name is Wes Clark and I am in my retirement dream job serving as a Business and Information Technology Teacher in a public high school. I am leveraging a thirty-two year career in business and IT to bring real world experience to the classroom for the benefit of my students. My desire is to help kids acquire the 21st century skills to succeed, whether in college or the workplace. Courses I’ve taught so far include Personal Finance and Economics; Computer Information Systems; Design, Multimedia and Web Technologies and Introduction to Cybersecurity.
In an effort to keep our members, the Greater Washington DC region, and the world informed and connected we are holding a series of FREE Cyber workshops for who is interested! We want to give you an outlet as we all adjust to the new norms we are faced with as a result of the escalating health concerns related to the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). As such, we hope you can join us. We have a great lineup of presenters who will cover a variety of interesting topics for which one (1) CPE can be earned for each webinar attended. You will need to self-certify, however, as GWDC will not be sending you a CPE certificate.
