Press Herald speaks with Morrison about remote learning and teaching

The Portland Press Herald interviewed Mia Morrison, an adviser and lecturer in instructional technology with the University of Maine College of Education and Human Development, for an article about the “new normal” of learning at home for Maine’s PreK-12 students and teachers. The piece profiled a second-grade class at Portland’s Lyseth Elementary School, showing how the teacher and students are adapting to remote learning due to the COVID-19 pandemic. “In a classroom you know the instruction and support each child is getting,” Morrison told the Press Herald. “It’s a guessing game online. I would say that’s a big difficulty. You don’t have any idea what’s happening around the students and how much support they’re getting. They may be getting none.”
