The COVID-19 pandemic has led to unprecedented social distancing restrictions throughout the country. With many students now being advised to stay home and the majority of U.S.-based schools being temporarily closed as part of the nation’s efforts to slow down the spread of the coronavirus, a huge number of students and educators are now learning and teaching from their homes.
In an effort to assist educators and policymakers looking for guidance and solutions to critical COVID-19 challenges, our education experts have been gathering and reviewing resources for designing and delivering distance learning programs. Some good examples are the U.S. Department of Education’s list of COVID-19 Information and Resources for Schools and School Personnel as well as New America’s recently released list of tips for optimizing online learning for preK-12 students during the pandemic.
Following the adage “necessity is the mother of invention,” education stakeholders around the country are coming up with new and innovative ways to better engage students in a virtual setting every day. As such, during the coming weeks, Marzano Research will be sharing various educational tips and resources specifically geared toward online/virtual learning via our official Twitter feed as well as our LinkedIn page. You can find these tips easily by searching for our #MRDistanceED hashtag on both platforms.
