FREE Resources to Help Support Online Teaching and Virtual Classrooms Post Pandemic
Why We Help
After the outbreak of COVID-19 and the declaration of a national emergency, we learned that millions of teachers, students, and parents across the nation struggled to find the best options to ensure that online learning supported their children . Our team has come together to create solutions to assist in the education of our most prized possessions and support communities in the new virtual world of education.
FREE Online Course for Teachers
We are offering a free, 45 hour online course called “Educational Technology for Online Learning: Crash Course“. This course is meant to provide teachers of all proficiency levels with valuable tools, strategies, and resources to assist them in using technology for online and distance learning. The course includes sample modules from many of the courses that we currently offer. We want to provide teachers an overview and wide array of technology tools and resources that they may find useful during this time and beyond. Highlights of this class include:
- The course is open to all teachers worldwide.
- Students have access to the course within 1-2 days after registration.
- The course is geared towards all teachers, including technology novices and beginners.
- 45 CTLE Hours are available for New York State Teachers upon request.
We Are Donating to the Island Harvest CoronaVirus Preparedness and Prevention Program
Island Harvest is taking additional steps to help veterans, seniors, stranded college students, and school-age kids impacted by the coronavirus. Now, more than ever, people and their families who are affected need our help to put food on their tables. Island Harvest Food Bank is taking a lead in meeting the needs of the most vulnerable people in the community during this crisis by reaching out to partner school districts, senior communities and veteran organizations to lend our support and expertise as their programs and services are temporarily discontinued. We are in the process of ordering emergency response food to address this critical situation, among other critical measures.
