Resources for Learning at Home
Throughout the initial weeks responding to COVID-19, the educational community has prioritized the health, safety, and wellness of students, families, educators, and staff. Districts and schools across Colorado have begun operating with various remote learning models for their students, with variations from one district to the next. In an effort to help schools plan for educational continuity while the suspension of in-person learning is in effect, we have curated a list of best practices for remote learning and teaching including free web-based resources to help keep students academically engaged. We recognize that the multitude of resources for remote learning can be overwhelming so we have collected and organized material by content area and grade level that may be useful as educators develop plans for their students. While remote learning through the Internet provides a great deal of flexibility in learning opportunities, educators should also consider utilizing hard copy resources (e.g., packet work, textbooks).
There is no requirement for districts to offer remote learning via the Internet, but if educators decide to go this path they should strive to include equitable access to instruction for all students. Equitable access does not require that all students receive instruction in the same format (e.g., online instruction). Districts should consider the individual learning needs of students in determining how to best meet individual needs.
