Now that it’s August, most of us are in back-to-school mode. Here at PBIS Rewards, we felt it was important to have an in-depth conversation about the challenges educators are facing at the beginning of this unusual school year. We asked educators to send in their questions about PBIS and distance learning, and that led to a fun and lively discussion session about how to make PBIS work in the virtual classroom.
The facilitator for this discussion was our own Associate Director of Product Engagement, Kara Yates. Joining Kara for this hour-long discussion were our Professional Development Educators, Anna Michaels and India Williams. The discussion revolved around six areas of focus:
- Getting Started With PBIS in a Distance Environment
- Updating Your Behavior Matrix
- Rewarding Points
- Staff Buy-In
- Engaging Parents and Community
Thanks to the input from educators everywhere during this live event, there were lots of great ideas shared. If you’re an educator looking for ways to boost engagement and connect with students in a distance learning environment, you’ll find them in this discussion!
