Campuses are closing and will likely remain closed for the rest of the school year. For many, our education system is unprepared to transition to remote learning. We need to make learning from home an awesome experience that thrills kids, engages teachers, relieves families, and restores community. We invite you to come learn about Wide Open School, a new, free online resource to support families and educators who are transitioning to remote learning as a result of the coronavirus.
This recorded edWebinar will equip you with a variety of pre-K–12 content to address subject areas, life skills, SEL, physical activity, arts, STEAM, and much more. There is something for everyone!
This recorded edWebinar will be of benefit to middle school through higher education teachers, librarians, and school leaders.
