JCCEO Virtual Learning
World events will deeply impact Head Start and Early Head Start programs day to day operations, enrolled children and families, and the communities in which we serve. JCCEO's goal through Virtual Learning is to quickly adapt and adjust our social connection when physical and social distances occur.
Research indicates that virtual classroom learning should foster a sense of community, building a relationship between teacher and child and connections that foster high academic skills and provide opportunities for social/emotional development.
When needed the JCCEO Education Department will adapt Virtual Learning to ensure that children receive a quality research-based curriculum learning experience that is supported by the Office of Head Start, School Readiness, Head Start Early Learning Outcome Framework, and the Alabama Early Learning Guidelines. The JCCEO Education Department will ensure that the Virtual Learning curriculum aligns with supported adaptions and guidance of Teaching Strategies Gold Assessment tools to track child devilment and growth in various learning environments for the ages of children, birth to five. Within a move to Virtual Learning, the adapted research-based curriculum will communicate effectively with not only English-speaking children but also with children who are Dual Language Learners (DLL’s) either directly or through interpretation or translation.
When used intentionally and appropriately, technology and interactive media are effective tools to support learning and development; and JCCEO understands the limitations on the use of technology and media are important. When used appropriately, and keeping screen time recommendations in mind, technology and interactive media have the potential to enhance, without replacing, creative play, exploration, physical activity, outdoor experiences, conversation, and social interactions during pandemics. JCCEO will carefully consider the screen time recommendations from NAEYC, QRIS, and from public health organizations for children from birth through age 5 when determining appropriate limits on technology and media use in the early childhood during remote learning.
JCCEO will ensure teachers are supported by assigned Education Coach who will provide practice-based coaching strategies to help teachers use effective teaching practices that lead to positive outcomes for children. Teachers will be assessed virtually to identify strengths, and areas needing support.
