9:10 children out of school!! Wow!
Anna Hartman
23:03
—Not unprecedented in individual places
Anna Hartman
23:53
—On the one had they do catch up; at the same time, it takes time—not just a couple of months.
Anna Hartman

Anna Hartman
24:32
—Equity—re:class, rural, urban, special education, ECE. That is, who is not learning as much via online learning.
Anna Hartman
24:47
—Putting on an equity lens.
Anna Hartman
25:16
—Media (today: text messages, internet) is often used to mitigate learning loss
Anna Hartman
25:33
—Children are at risk for toxic stress when school is closed
Anna Hartman
26:06
—Children’s suffering exacts a price. Educators can help.
Anna Hartman
26:42
—Is it time for a reimagining of school?
Anna Hartman
26:53
(Parents seem open to this in some places)
Sasha Kopp

Anna Hartman
28:07
—When you take a global look at this time, severe issues about global hunger and child abuse (without the usual mandated reporters).
Anna Hartman
28:19
—This is the landscape of what our schools are going through.
Juliette L.
28:34
A lot of schools systems are providing lunches via accessible buildings to other locations in NY & MA.
Anna Hartman
28:43
—All of this at the same time as we sprint toward distance learning and innovation.
Sasha Kopp
29:26
Another Article! https://www.npr.org/2020/03/26/821921575/the-biggest-distance-learning-experiment-in-history-week-one
Anna Hartman
29:30
—Most exciting in the realm of internet-enabled education is the way that the learner can be in charge.
Anna Hartman
29:56
<We will share out these notes and slides after the call; you can find them and the recording at jparadigm.org>
Anna Hartman
30:22
—We see individuals learning how to build learning communities.
Anna Hartman
31:05
—Looking ahead to the future, schools that have smoothly pivoted are those who have real relationships. That is the foundation.
Anna Hartman
31:39
—Trauma: Understanding what this mean and what this looks like, understanding behavior. By understanding how to work through behaviors caused by trauma.
Anna Hartman
32:17
—Online learning won’t go away after this—because of rolling closures. Much like telecommuting. Now that is clear it is possible, will be expected at times.
Anna Hartman
33:02
—Parent engagement! Empowering parents as the ones who are enabling the learning. Offering parents the strategies—we are coaching parents more than directly instructing the children.
Anna Hartman
33:38
—ACCESS. Inequity. Who has technology, who shares it, who has an adult available to them.
Anna Hartman
34:16
—A word about media use: We used to talk about balance and screen time. But those have exploded—at least doubled. Need to focus on what is problematic media use, mitigating the harm of use.
Anna Hartman
34:39
—Problematic media use measure (PMUM).
Anna Hartman
35:48
-EC Educators have role in alleviating parent guilt and helping parents understand how to think about and limit harmful effects. Thinking about building a toolbox. Need a nuanced discussion about how impacting development.
Sasha Kopp
37:31
We can look at our international schools to help us build confidence - join us for the Leadership in the COVID Wilderness series on Monday June 1st to hear from some of our international early childhood colleagues!
Anna Hartman
37:37
—Schools have opened to some extent in 22 countries—and 100+ resource centers in NY with open schools. We have track record to suggest that measures will help us open safely. Eg 1,100 centers open from YMCA, without cases coming from schools. Need to build parent confidence and measures. Need to talk about success, what it looks like.
Sasha Kopp
38:16
https://www.npr.org/2020/04/24/842528906/what-it-might-look-like-to-safely-reopen-schools
Anna Hartman
39:07
How will schools be different? Staggered schedules. Class sizes of 12 or fewer. EC programs have been open earlier than older grades in many places. Calendars will be of a different flow—year round, for example? Stepped up cleaning/hygiene measures.
Anna Hartman
40:16
—Different attendance policies—will need different attitudes toward this. Limited mixing among groups. Remote learning will be key to accommodate for these other changes. Social emotional help will be key—need to understand the children so that schools continue to be a place of trust and happiness.
Anna Hartman
41:08
—The question of moral injury. We are living life in pandemic; there is lots of survivors guilt. People feel bad that they have resources to stay safe when others didn’t.
Anna Hartman
41:50
—Living with uncertainty. We are at a whole new level of this. For those who work with young children, how will we double down on a sense of order in this environment?
Anna Hartman
42:07
—“We don’t know when we can go back to the park…”
Anna Hartman
42:33
—Children are not served by a false sense of certainty.
Sasha Kopp
43:19
Question time! Add them to the chat!
Stephanie Berman
44:09
What is the number one piece of advice teachers should share with parents?
Juliette L.
44:17
What types of behaviors should we expect /prepare for with young children? I work in a preschool.
Ilana Friedman
44:30
are certain groups of people choosing not to return to schools as they are reopening?
Melissa Loeb
44:39
can you talk more about the problematic media use measure? who uses it? and why?
Shariee Calderone
44:40
Can you talk about the way relationships between students and how we can expect they might develop inside the class and potentially locally outside school?
Samantha Fairman
44:42
do you know of a homeschool program that is really good?
roz
46:28
This is a great opportunity for seasoned early childhood teachers to re-think their work, embrace new ways of interacting with families and not get stuck in what was. What have you heard from the teacher perspective?
Anna Hartman
46:33
From Jen: What if there is a cure, vaccine, viable/available treatment, etc.? Any idea that we will we be able to relax the stringent behaviors surrounding masks, cleaning so vigorously, distancing, etc? How will we feel certain?
Talia Neuhaus
47:01
I have a family who doesn’t want their child to know much about the pandemic. I feel like its not our place to make the choice to tell the child, but its definitely the best for the child to hear the truth. How can we talk to the parents about this?
Yedida Assa
47:05
At what age is it reasonable to expect a child to wear a mask?
Sasha Kopp
47:49
There is a question of social solitary…. It’s connected to position in society and what is felt throughout a culture
Michelle Diaz
48:46
As my school year transitions to summer camp and my zoom calls are going to become less frequent how can I lessen the trauma for my students without an in person end?
Laura
48:47
How would you approach encouraging/enforcing children to social distance in schools when close interaction and play is an essential part of their development? How can we keep the kids safer while also fostering their social and emotional growth and needs?
Steven Shimshak
48:59
How will teachers stay connected with each other as colleagues, friends, and emotional supports with the need for social distancing in schools?
Rachel F
49:02
How do we help teachers move forward and not be stuck in what used to be normal? Teachers keep telling me they can’t wait to be back at school and back to normal. We are not going back to that. How can we help the teachers accept this and understand it, and move forward?
Anna Hartman
50:23
YES
mcglynn-mandel
50:27
The child will hear about it from his/her peers, the question is would you rather the child hear about it from other children?
Ilana Friedman
50:38
What are the most positive “ways forward” you have found schools making as they reopen differently than they operated prior to closure?
mcglynn-mandel
51:26
Thinking about the message in
Shira Frager
52:02
It will be interesting to hear the kinds of conversations we will hear kids having with each other when they go back to school! About Covid19, "getting sick" in 2,3,4-year-old language, etc.
Debbi
52:18
How do we think about transitioning "new children and families" to virtual environments/ "no parents in school model" when they don't yet have the emotional trust and connection to educators
Anna Hartman
53:02
For high school students who change classes every period, what are you hearing about how these children’s education will change? Will social distancing be enough or will this model of secondary ed. change entirely so that children are not mixing with so many others?
Anna Hartman
53:36
-Stations of feelings. Yes.
Ilana Friedman
53:39
Where to we get the best protocol for reopening safely when we don’t have faith in our local dept of health?
elianawillis
54:50
Some states are pushing to reopen before it is safe. (Motivated by economic gain, at the expense of people’s lives). How can we know when it is really safe to open schools?
Sasha Kopp
54:54
“My love language is information!” - How could this be a leadership mantra ?
Diana Ganger
55:51
Think about love on line-it happens-children can build it too
roz
56:02
Keeping the "new" vision moving forward will take strong leadership and building professional learning communities to stay connected and share.
Sasha Kopp
57:06
Love that idea Diana! We have all formed a strong community during this time online too!
Juliette L.
57:08
