Remote Learning Community: Preparing for the Coronavirus's picture

Remote Learning Community: Preparing for the Coronavirus 

Is your school or community preparing for possible school closures due to the spread of COVID-19? If the answer is yes, join our online community for educators, school support staff, and parents to share ideas, lesson plans, and resources. In this community, you will find remote learning resources to address the needs of children who may have to stay home from school for prolonged periods of time. You can also engage with fellow educators and parents in the discussion section and share helpful tips, or ask for advice.

Help us add lessons for remote learning, or share how your community or school is preparing by uploading resources to share with educators across the country. What resources are you sending home with students? How are you communicating with your students if schools close down? Are there projects you are asking your students to do at home? Share your lesson plans, handouts and resources with educators from across the country.

How to engage with this community:

Step 1: Join the Community (select the orange join community button on the bottom right).

Step 2: Share your thougths with fellow educators and parents in the discussion section. Join a current discussion thread, or start your own topic.

Step 3: Upload a lesson plan, resource, handout, or something that you think would be helpful to share with other educators and parents preparing for school closures (select the orange upload lesson button on the bottom right, assuming you joined the community).

We're putting together a list to share this week. We will feature some of our great SML partners and other material that's helpful. There are a lot of lists out there - what tools do you recommend?
I hope you will share your ideas, tips, lessons, and questions as we all enter into new territory. We just published two new webinars for our free 2020 Share My Lesson Virtual Conference (March 24-26) on the coronavirus done in partnership with PBS NewsHour, Facing History and Ourselves, and the AFT.

Please register and spread the word. The conference is fully online and virtual. In addition to these online webinars, we have 40 additional webinars covering a variety of topics - all with professional development (PD) credit.
