The Overlooked Teacher Connectivity Challenge: Using Non-Dedicated Communications Devices
When schools closed, teachers were immediately pressed into a role that required greatly expanded digital communications. In most instances, it involved the use of their personal mobile phones in addition to their computing devices. Though part of the digital transformation, this was a change that happened rapidly and without the time needed to think through the many challenges that were to occur. Remote learning has become a way of life for both teacher and learner, and administrators are earnestly trying to keep all voice, text and social media accessible, professional, and transparent.
