Recently, learners and educators throughout Ontario began working together under very different circumstances. In what has been described by the provincial government as Continuous Learning, and by others as Emergency Remote Learning, Ontario Teachers are again working with their students — not in their classrooms — but rather from their homes. Join us as we converse with Ontario educators and hear, in their own voices, what it is like to be in Ontario: Learning Together at Home.
Jim Pedrech is the English and Canadian & World Studies department head at Holy Cross Catholic Secondary School in Strathroy, Ontario. In this conversation, we learn about some of the projects that Jim had been working on before the COVID-19 shutdown and how he has attempted to translate some of that vision and energy to an online environment.
