As regular readers know, I’ve been publishing a series of posts to help educators at schools prepare for Coronavirus closures (you can see links to all of them at The Best Advice On Teaching K-12 Online (If We Have To Because Of The Coronavirus) – Please Make More Suggestions!).
EdSurge has just published a great article headlined ‘Students Are Lonely:’ What Happens When Coronavirus Forces Schools Online.
Not only does it offer helpful basic advice, but it also includes incredibly useful links, including to a Google Folder containing the remote learning plans of many Asian schools already closed; a Facebook group where educators are exchanging ideas; and a crowdsourced list of online resources.
One thing I learned from that list is Brainpop is offering access to their platform for free to any schools closed because of the Coronavirus.
