DAP In ECE Online Learning

    As an instructional coach for grades K-1, I am looking for research that can guide my teachers in best practices to create DAP classroom lessons if  we are distance learning in the fall. The teachers I coach are skilled within the classroom, but concerned about beginning a year virtually. I'm looking for guidance on building the capacity for offline, projects-based experiences for our students which are grounded in addresses our state standards.

    This is a great question and one thing I would definitely share with instructors is to remember to engage their students using Bloom's affective domain. It is a strong part of DAP where you are making personal connections with the students. I'll share a link here that you may already use, but the tenets discussed apply to online learning as well.
    https://www.naeyc.org/resources/topics/dap/10-effective-dap-teaching-strategies

    The biggest differences will come from how the instructors are interacting with the students. Is it via an LMS and text based or will they be using a synchronous system where they can actually see the students for contextual feedback? In either case, they need to adapt the fundamental DAP principles and strategies to that environment. A real challenge (will require creativity) is the "play" aspect of DAP. It is relatively easy to design interactive play opportunities in a face-to-face classroom, but online is obviously a different beast. BUT...if you've been paying attention to ways that children have come together since COVID 19 shut things down, you'll see examples of online interactive play. Children have come together to do performances of all types. What will have to happen is what I saw a colleague do the other day. He was wondering how to teach band face-to-face when students are required to wear face masks. What did he do? He reached out to his PLN and asked specific questions about how others are dealing with it. In your case, your teachers need to use/expand their PLN for their content areas and make extensive use of it to get and share ideas. The next thing is to encourage them to share what they've found so others can benefit. Best of luck!

    Many teachers are using Seesaw k-3 as a way to differentiate activities for their students.  They are having students create or practice offline and then showcasing their learning on the platform.  An example of this would be having students find items of a certain color.  They can take pictures with their device of the colors they found, and then record their voice explaining each one.  Another is doing physical fitness through counting.  Any activities like these will keep your students engaged in the learning process, but also align with your curriculum and requirements.

    Great question, Mary.

    To be honest, I have very little experience with the DAP framework.  I browsed this website https://www.naeyc.org/resources/topics/dap/10-effective-dap-teaching-strategies and it looked to have some good information.  You may have already browsed this but just wanted to share.

    Thanks,
    Marcy:)

    Hey, Mary,

    This NAEYC site is seemingly the go-to, and in particular, the Resources page within it, https://www.naeyc.org/resources/topics/dap. One could most certainly build a professional learning event simply based on that webpage.

    I commiserate with your teachers, as my city is opening Phase 3 today despite a continuing upsurge of infections. Stay safe and well!
