The transition to e-learning due to the spread of COVID-19 has been difficult, but many free resources are available to keep educators and students connected in all areas, including health and wellness, instruction, and social communication.
Global Teletherapy is a great resource to help students maintain their mental health. The service provides free speech-language, occupational, and behavioral counseling, allowing students to get the services they need while coping with the current public health crisis.
The Critical Thinking Co. is offering puzzle and math activities for grades one through five that can be delivered weekly to students’ emails and printed. For older students, Amazon Future Engineer is providing free access to computer science courses for students in grades six through 12.
Finally, to maintain communication, ClassTag has launched a schoolwide platform that allows administrators, teachers, parents, and students to communicate with each other. The platform also allows for virtual lessons with a videoconferencing tool.
