Distance Learning Center
After nearly a semester of emergency distance learning (or remote learning) due to COVID-19 school closures, district leaders are working to enable safe learning and instruction through remote learning plans.
We’ve spent countless hours having conversations with technology leaders throughout K-12 about what they’ve learned and how technology supports remote learning decisions moving forward. From these conversations, we’ve put together over 100 resources to help you maximize instruction throughout your distance learning initiative.
What is Distance Learning?
At the highest level, distance learning (also referred to as remote learning or e-Learning) occurs when teachers and students are separated by distance and/or time, making it impossible to meet in a traditional classroom setting. It compensates for this separation by moving instruction online and enabling teaching to continue amid unexpected events.
