Teaching and Learning From Home
A response to COVID-19 School Closures
A little more than a month ago, our team launched the Learn Kind pilot with outstanding K-8 teachers across the U.S. But in the last few weeks, like most of you, we’ve had to pivot. As the majority of the country transitions to remote teaching and learning, we’ve decided to pause the Learn Kind pilot until it can be fully experienced by students and educators, together.
But our commitment to our kindness and soft skills curriculum, and to educators, is more resolute than ever. Here’s our curated collection of resources to support teaching and learning from home. This list includes some of our favorites from interactive learning platforms to video libraries, to virtual tours. It covers a wide range of subject areas, including core subjects like ELA and math, as well as STEM, SEL, and the arts.
In the coming weeks, we’ll be creating new opportunities and tools to cultivate kindness and we will keep updating this list.
