What Will School Look Like This Fall? 3 Possible Scenarios

Author: Keith Westman | Hot Topics in K12 |

This summer, administrators across the US will be making plans to start the 2020-21 school year. While still uncertain, there are three likely scenarios:

Scenario 1: Remote Learning

Remote Learning takes place outside of the classroom. As seen this spring, educators and students relay information through discussion boards, video calls, online assessments, and more.

How does Otus help?

Otus centralizes communication, lessons, assessments, and data in one place. By integrating with any website, Google, and the district SIS, schools can ensure a streamlined learning experience for all users. Common lessons, learning resources, and assessments can also be created and shared directly with specific groups of students and teachers.

Scenario 2: Blended Learning

Blended learning combines classroom and remote learning. This may include staggered start times for students, modified schedules, and creating smaller class sizes in order to accommodate health and safety guidelines.

How does Otus help?

With all communication, lessons, and assessments organized in one platform, schools can be sure learning experiences are consistent in the classroom and at home. Administrators can also run quick data analyses of student performance to compare groups of students. Comparing in-class and remote student performance can help determine ways to improve blended learning. 

Scenario 3: Classroom Learning

Teachers and students may head back to the classroom for full traditional face-to-face learning.

How does Otus help?

Overall, Otus organizes and creates a more efficient learning experience for administrators, teachers, students, and families. With insight into real-time data, school leaders can better understand student performance and confidently make the right decisions for their students.
