Teaching in Person and Online

 Been reading the book below, so far looks very good and to the point in these times.  Have not finished, but good so far.  The technical specifics may get out of date, but the rest should hold up. 

The Hybrid Teacher, Using Technology to teach in Person and OnLine,  by Emma Pass

A practical educational technology resource for educators teaching remotely or in the classroom

The most effective hybrid teachers are those that have a vast knowledge of instructional strategies, technologies, tools, and resources, and can masterfully build meaningful relationships with students in person and through a screen. The Hybrid Teacher: Using Technology to Teach in Person and Online will teach educators to leverage the technology they have access to both in their traditional brick-and-mortar classrooms and in remote learning environments, including established online and hybrid schools; emergency response models for pandemics, natural disasters; rural education; and connecting with students who can't make it to school.    ( Do note that Emma is a middle school teacher, so some of her examples are from that realm,  but still I think useful.)

Many of us had to adapt to online teaching during the COVID-19 pandemic, but we still need resources for optimizing our instruction and becoming the best teachers we can be. This book is a practical guide for teachers who want to prepare for current and future remote instruction or leverage the best practices of remote instruction and EdTech tools to bring back to their brick-and-mortar classrooms. You'll learn about the impact of social and economic differences on classroom technology, and you'll find strategies and advice for maximizing success in each situation.  From Amazon
