With K-12 schools currently closed, parents and guardians may be looking for ways to help enhance their children’s learning during this time at home. The following resources* provide learning opportunities for kids. The Ohio Department of Education just published a Remote Learning Resource Guide for educators and parents/guardians. This 25 page guide is well worth your time, though part of the content is technical and procedural information for teachers. Past the first few pages, you’ll find lists of recommended web resources for each academic content area, targeted to teachers and to parents/guardians. Don’t miss the section about internet service providers on pages 9-10, which includes links to companies offering free or reduced price internet access, and a list of ISPs that have pledged to open wi-fi hotspots and not to cut internet access for failure to pay.
