The Internet is awash with articles about school-related lessons learned during the pandemic.
Unfortunately, I’ve been less-than-impressed with many of them.
I thought I’d bring together some of my previous posts on the topic, along with thoughtful ones written by others, AND invite readers to share their own.
I’m adding this post to my other resources related to school closures.
Here they are:

What if the corona virus pandemic was the push we as teachers needed to deepen our use of technology in the classroom? Before Covid, we used technology as a perk, a time filler, or to show how we plan engaging lessons by incorporating a technology component. After Covid, technology is now a NEED and a REQUIREMENT, period.
This pandemic made History books. Equally important, it gave teachers a much needed push to gear their instruction to a new kind of learner, a digital learner.
