Virtual learning tools and resources

As disheartening as it is to be here again, many schools are being forced to pivot to virtual learning in order to ensure the safety of their students, families and educators. With this in mind, we are re-elevating a series of resources aligned to virtual learning and the mindset shift that is required in order to ensure that great teaching and learning is happening, regardless of the delivery method. Many of our partners have found that these resources continue to support their instruction even once they have returned to the in-person classroom!

Additionally, we want to honor the humanity of this moment by encouraging educators to nurture both the heads and the hearts of their students as well as themselves and their colleagues; adults whose own social-emotional needs are not being met are unlikely to be able to promote social-emotional wellbeing or academic success in the students they serve. We are excited to provide educational leaders with a series of tips as well as a plethora of resources aligned to this need.
