Learning Doesn't Need to Stop if School is Closed - It Really Doesn't!

Many EdTech companies have jumped in to support teachers and learners as schools close in response to the Coronavirus Pandemic. You don't have to look far to find these resources.


A Few Lists of EdTech Tools to Support School Closures
  • Wakelet Collection - EdTech companies offering FREE support and/or access to schools affected by COVID19 closures.
  • Google Sheet - Education Companies Offering Free Subscriptions due to School Closings
If you are looking for more, Twitter is recommending the hashtag #RemoteLearning

These resources are great but are important to also remember that engaging students outside of the classroom does not always have to be digital. There is something called a book, reading still matters. Paper is another great resource. Drawing can powerful way to engage students in a learning experience. I am a huge fan of sketchnotes and infographics. I've also been exploring some ideas to engage my students in just making observations without any technology.
We can’t ignore the power of digital resources to engage students in ideas and concepts. Here is our collection of recommended digital resources and digital learning frameworks to support learners outside of our classrooms.

Essential eLearning Resources
Additional eLearning Resources
Professional Development Resources for Teachers 
Try to find one thing that can help your students and go from there. Last but not least, don't forget to have some fun and make sure your students have the opportunity to do something fun as part of their learning experiences. I am already brainstorming a modified version of my Happy Friday Videos
