Resources for Remote Learning

  • Published: Monday, March 16, 2020

In response to our members who had questions about the resources available as K-12 schools in Missouri quickly shift to remote learning, we hosted a virtual brown bag huddle to discuss resources and tools, while sharing support.

Here are some of the highlights of that conversation:

How are students connecting with educators if they have low or no Internet at home?

  • Some are using WiFi from the school parking lot to download assignments/upload homework.
  • In districts where several students lack Internet, teachers are printing lots of lesson plans.
  • One district said they gave teachers a PD day to come up with two weeks worth of plans to distribute work students.
  • One educator created a Bingo activity where there are multiple options for completing assignments. This provided students with options- included were no and low connectivity activities, allowing more flexibility for students that are offline.
  • Various organizations offer hot spots.

Don’t Forget the Importance of cybersecurity!
