S1:OTR13 Leslie Witten Knows Distance Learning

As the COVID-19 crisis began to roll over Hawaiʻi, I reached out to a group of trusted education friends and asked for the names of potential guests who could speak clearly to the conceptual, and technical nature of so-called distance learning. Very quickly my colleagues suggested Leslie Witten, and glad I am that they did. Leslie is an education technology specialist at Le Jardin Academy, a medium sized independent school on the Windward side of Oahu. She has a BA from UCLA in ethnomusicology and a M.Ed. from National University with an emphasis on 21st century learning and teaching methodologies and constructivism. She has been involved with Hawaii’s Schools of the Future project since the very beginning. Leslie describes herself on LinkedIn as: “Dynamic, positive, experienced educator, technology and library media specialist; highly competent, collaborative, and innovative; proven track record in creating twenty-first century learning communities. Enthusiastic, committed professional with a deep passion for providing people of all ages with opportunities to reach their own potential. Active life-long learner of best practice in education.” I divided this episode into two parts. Part 1 is more about the social, emotional and conceptual issues related to distance learning and learning at home. Part 2 is more about the technical elements of virtual learning, and about the lingo. I hope this episode proves useful to parents, educators and education leaders both in Hawaiʻi and outside the state. To learn more about Leslie, click on her LinkedIn page

  3. For starters I wish to say superb blog! I needed
    a brief question where I’d prefer to ask unless you mind.
    I found myself interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your mind just before writing.
    I’ve had a hard time clearing my mind in getting my ideas out.
    I truly do enjoy writing however it just seems like the initial 10 to 15 minutes are usually lost just figuring out how to begin. Any recommendations
    or hints? Appreciate it!

  4. certainly just like your web-site but you have to look into the spelling on a good
    number of of your posts. A number are rife with spelling issues
    and that i find it very bothersome to inform the reality
    however I’ll definitely come back again.
