Flynn, Paul. (2020). Enhancing K-12 pre-service teachers digital pedagogical literacy lesson planning for teaching online. In Richard E.

Lesson planning is an essential component of teacher professional development. COVID-19 has ushered a rapid transition from classroom based teaching to online engagement with K-12 students placing new demands on teachers to apply their lesson planning skills to new digital classroom environments. This paper presents a rationale for innovation in lesson planning for online teaching. Early results from a pilot project indicate that a Rhythmic Approach to lesson planning translated well to online classrooms and facilitated dialogic interactions between teachers and students. In addition nascent challenges associated with the transition from physical to online classrooms were mitigated. Early results and outcomes are relevant to K-12 preservice teachers, teacher educators and established inservice practitioners.
