Global Online Academy @ WAB: GOA

WAB is a Global Online Academy consortium school. 


Design for Learning

These five competencies are:

  • Know your online infrastructure.
  • Use online tools to know, support, and empower students.
  • Design online assessments that lead to high-quality student work.
  • Design online learning experiences that students can navigate on their own.
  • Facilitate online learning experiences to support student engagement.

"If you remove the word “online” from these competencies, you’ll find that these skills translate well to in-person learning environments. This is not a coincidence. Online spaces are merely a platform, they are not pedagogy. What we know to be true about effective teaching remains true online: the particular tools and tactics may change, but the approach and strategies thrive in any learning environment."
