Today’s students are experiencing an unprecedented shift in the way they learn. School buildings across the country have closed in response to the pandemic, affecting more than 55 million students. Educators have worked hard to move to distance learning, ensuring that students can still be engaged in their education from home. But with more than a dozen states announcing their intention to keep buildings closed for the rest of the semester, it’s unlikely that students will return to their normal routines anytime soon.

Distance learning can be challenging and isolating for students, who may feel disconnected from friends and teachers. Educators can get a sense of students’ mental health and well-being in the classroom, but losing that face-to-face contact makes it harder to gauge how students are doing during this stressful time. While schools may have protocols in place to support struggling students on campus, educators may be unsure of how they can help remotely.

Join this edWebinar for a discussion about this “new normal” of distance learning. We’ll dive into the trends of how and what students are doing as seen through Gaggle’s data, as well as how educators can keep students safe and connected while they learn at home.

This edWebinar will be of benefit to school and district leaders of elementary through high school grade levels. There will be time to have your questions answered at the end of the presentation.
