Online and far away. That’s what it felt like for teachers and students when COVID propelled them into the digital world. They wondered: Would it be possible for students to learn effectively outside of the classroom? Could instruction be adapted to keep learners engaged from afar? Could schools support student well-being at a distance?

The changes altered the educational landscape, inspiring educators to embrace new instructional methods and carry them over to their classrooms once they returned to normalcy.
