Remote/Hybrid Learning Guidance & Resources

In these challenging times, how will we accelerate learning to ensure schools and districts can serve every child with rigor and equity, now and into the future?

In response to educators’ most pressing challenges, TLA is committed to providing curated resources and high-quality, actionable guidance on creating safe and effective remote, hybrid, and in-person learning experiences. Our work described below will help districts ensure personalized, mastery-based learning can happen anywhere, anytime.

Coaching for Immediate Support

Leaders are rapidly transforming their schools and systems in the midst of incredible uncertainty — they need individualized support. TLA created the Always Ready for Learning Coaching Network, a national, philanthropically supported initiative providing K-12 school district leaders with pro bono, rapid, and customized guidance to help them carry out effective remote and hybrid teaching and learning.

Implementing Remote/Hybrid Teaching and Learning

Quality remote teaching and hybrid instruction are critical to ensure equitable outcomes for every child in the country at this moment in time. TLA has developed a research-informed framework and related training and implementation resources to help educators create a strong foundation for self-directed student learning and effective teaching through the strategic use of technology, pedagogy, and relationship-building.

Reopening Schools Safely

The Parabola Project brings together experts in health and education to offer leaders strategies and working tools to minimize risks while maximizing learning when reopening schools. A partnership between TLA and Ariadne Labs (a joint center for health systems innovation at Brigham & Women’s Hospital and the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health), the resources take into consideration a balanced view of risk and assist school leaders in creating and executing their plans to reopen schools for in-person learning.

Building Resiliency and Equity

The Always Ready for Learning Strategy Lab is a project from TLA, in partnership with Bellwether Education Partners, working to accelerate the development of a more resilient and equitable education future. The Strategy Lab supported seven districts in resiliency planning for the short-term (fall 2020 re-opening) as well as the long-term (sustainable, equitable models) through a networked improvement community and 1:1 planning support. The tools below can help any district or school system make practical, meaningful improvements to teaching and learning.
