As educators, we are facing an unprecedented challenge – supporting student learning remotely. Teaching and learning outside the walls of our classrooms can be effective and engaging; we just need to enlist the help of parents and families to carry out the continuation of learning at home. The greatest asset we have as an educator is to extend our hands through the reach of the adults surrounding the students. Watch Barbara Steinberg in this edWebinar as she reveals essential aspects of forging this relationship that can create active ongoing learning. This edWebinar provides information on:
- How to build a dynamic partnership with parents and families
- Understanding the best FREE virtual math and reading tools
- Effectively using virtual tools that make learning at home simple for the parents and families and engaging for the students
This recorded edWebinar will be of benefit to preK through elementary teachers and school and district leaders.
