Don’t stop learning – even when disaster strikes

Learning equipped for any scenario

It’s nearly impossible to predict if and when disaster will strike. When it does, the impact can be immediate and incredibly disruptive, halting in-person learning and forcing teachers and administrators to come up with creative solutions to prevent learning from coming to a halt. And that is no easy task.

Are you struggling to…

Enable the continuation of learning amid temporary or permanent school closure due to physical damage or safety concerns during a disaster

Quickly deploy emergency learning resources

Manage disruption in communication and coordination among educational stakeholders

Gain data for informed decision-making during a crisis, such as tracking student well-being and academic progress

Address varied learning needs and challenges faced by students during a crisis, requiring flexible and personalized support

Be better prepared for disaster:
The PIE process

The key to successful disaster-proof education is finding the right tools and teaching activities at the right time. The Plan, Implement, Evaluate (PIE) process defines best practices complete with concrete steps that any educator can integrate into their own classroom.

Plan

Planning can be done by a teacher for their classroom, or as part of a group of educators and edtech specialists. Consider:

zoom-text Set clear objectives.
Set goals and objectives for what you’re trying to achieve.
chart Assess your school’s capability.
Find out what is your school’s technological and pedagogical capability for remote learning.
eye Identify barriers and constraints.
Do learners have access to technology and Internet access at home?
smile Get to know your students.
Know your students’ learning styles so you can develop the right approach.
like Ensure teacher readiness.
Make sure that all teachers know how to deliver a virtual class.

Implement

Implementation is the key phase in which planned strategies are put into action. Key components include:

productivity Content availability
Make sure your content is available on a digital platform and that it’s aligned with your technology and pedagogy.
camera-monitor The right digital tools
Evaluate your current digital tools, like an LMS, and their potential for remote learning. If you aren’t using one now, ask these questions before making a choice:
  • Is the LMS easy to set up and implement?
  • Does the LMS provider offer full support and assistance to users?
  • Does it possess the features that you are looking for or want to have?
  • What are the technological constraints between the users and the school?
heart The right learning activities
Learning will be virtual and remote, and you want to make sure the platform can support these activities. Some of the virtual activities that work well are:
  • Discussion forums
  • Debate assignments
  • Wikis
  • Online groups
  • Web-conferencing
  • Group chat
  • Quizzes
  • Freeform assessments

Evaluate

Evaluation is the way to know if the implementation has been successful, with three key components:

people Guide
Show teachers, students, and parents how to accommodate remote learning.
task-complete Monitor
Keep track of teachers’ and students’ progress and develop an effective feedback system.
mouse Adjust
Make the necessary adjustments to your implementation. Upgrade, innovate and update as often as needed.

Case study: CYPHER Learning helps school respond during COVID-19

When the pandemic hit, Mindbuilders Preschool turned toward CYPHER Learning to continue to provide educational experiences to their students.

“In the midst of a nationwide quarantine, we managed to maintain the standards of our education that we have built for almost two decades,” said Directress Marah Estuesta.

Traditional tools often come with a steep learning curve, making fast adjustments during disaster nearly impossible. CYPHER’s intuitive user interface is geared toward learners of all different ages, skill levels, and abilities, decreasing the time needed to get students up to speed.

Teachers and parents also benefit from the easily navigable and intuitive platform. “We were happy with the tools provided by CYPHER to organize the lessons prepared by the teachers. We were amazed by how easy it was for the students and parents to access and download the learning materials,” said Pach Pacheco-Beton, a teacher and curriculum consultant.

Overall, CYPHER enables the rapid deployment of announcements and learning resources, enables the continuity of personalized learning support, allows teachers to check in on students well-being, and more – even when disaster strikes.
