Michigan’s leading educational organizations are working together to provide statewide support during the COVID-19 pandemic. Supporting and ensuring high-quality student learning and whole-child support is the primary focus of the efforts being made by MAISA-GELN, MASSP, MASA, MASB, and Michigan Virtual. We are committed to collaborating to avoid duplication of effort and to present work to the field in a coherent manner. Our collective goal is to provide support and resources for every school and educator in Michigan to access and utilize as we transition from pandemic learning to remote and blended remote learning for the 2020-21 school year.
What can we learn from the “living prototype” of emergency remote learning during COVID-19? With a desire to reflect and learn from this moment in educational history, the Michigan Virtual Learning Continuity Workgroup collaborated with Sundberg-Ferar, a Michigan-based design-thinking firm who conducted a qualitative research project focused on capturing authentic stories and experiences from administrators, teachers, parents, and students. The findings were compiled in a report titled Michigan Voices: An In-Depth Look at the Experiences of Educators, Students, & Parents During Emergency Remote Learning.
