Webinar Topic: Leading Students to Feel Valued and Capable through Online Learning
Description: In schools that achieve impressive learning results for Black, Latinx, and low-income students, researchers consistently find classrooms where all students feel valued and capable. Students with disabilities share that their teachers make them feel respected and intelligent. Students with emerging bilingualism report feeling a sense of belonging. Students who entered school below grade level express a sense of hope, because they are convinced their teachers are committed to their academic success. With passion and appreciation, Black students say their teachers believe in them and make them believe in themselves. In high- performing schools, researchers find abundant evidence of teachers leading students to feel valued and capable (Johnson, Uline, & Perez, 2019).
No one knows how long schools will remain closed physically; however, it is reasonable to assume that online teaching strategies will remain an important educational tool for the foreseeable future. So, how can educators use online learning situations in ways that maximize the likelihood that students will perceive they are both valued and capable? How can teachers use technology to increase the likelihood that each and every student will think, “The adults at my school sincerely want me to succeed in school and in life. They are confident that I am a scholar, likely to excel.” The Ohio Education Association, in collaboration with the National Center for Urban School Transformation, will explore this topic in greater detail in our upcoming webinar entitled, “Leading Students to Feel Valued and Capable through Online Learning.”
