Ohio Department of Education Releases Remote Learning Resource Guide
In the wake of statewide school closures due to the COVID-19 outbreak, the Ohio Department of Education released its Remote Learning Resource Guide last week.
The guide was released as Ohio extended its stay-at-home order to May 1st, which raises doubts about a possible return to physical classrooms this year for students.
The Remote Learning Resource Guide hopes “to be a one-stop shop to help schools, educators, students, parents and caregivers consider how to approach and apply a comprehensive remote learning plan.”
The Remote Learning Resource Guide addresses the following:
- Ohio’s core principles for remote learning;
- Defining and deploying remote learning;
- Developing and updating remote learning plans;
- Existing resources to maximize remote learning;
- Identifying internet providers and getting connected;
- Using instructional resources to enhance remote learning.
The guide features instructional resources for educators broken down by subject (i.e. Fine Arts, Math, Social Studies, etc.).
Along with supplemental educational resources for parents and caregivers, it also has information on internet service providers who are offering free or reduced-priced services during the coronavirus pandemic.
