The Alliance for Excellent Education (All4Ed), in conjunction with the Future Ready Schools® (FRS) advisory team of nationally recognized school- and district-level practitioners, has developed Planning for High-Quality Remote Learning, a new resource to share ideas, best practices, and practical considerations for addressing the unique challenges of virtual learning. This guide helps school and district leaders develop and refine a learner-centered remote environment where digital learning is more than anytime, anywhere device access and instead focuses on the delivery of innovative instruction for every child in any setting.
At the core of these recommendations, and at the heart of FRS, is equity. It is imperative that school and district leaders lead with an equity lens and keep historically marginalized student groups at the heart of all decision making.
This guide uses the Future Ready Framework to provide insight and considerations around some of the most important aspects of high-quality remote learning. The Future Ready Framework includes eight interconnected “gears” keeping the learner at the center, including Collaborative Leadership; Curriculum, Instruction, and Assessment; Personalized Professional Learning; Robust Infrastructure; Budget & Resources; Community Partnerships; Data and Privacy; and Use of Space and Time. Each of the gears are foundational components of schools that are future ready. The framework creates the foundation for equity-focused, learner-centered experiences where each student graduates from high school with the agency, passion, and skills needed to be a productive, successful, and responsible community member.
