Libraries have been a place to check out books for centuries. However, checking out things like telescopes or board games would have been unthinkable. Now, its something that is expected of libraries, which are evolving into “libraries of things.”
The online learning environment provides obstacles for students and teachers alike. Students still need to feel like they have a relationship with their teachers and are in an environment where they can take risks and ask questions, despite being on an online platform, so teachers must adapt to foster this type of environment for their students.
The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way educators think about teaching and required a process that plans for continued e-learning while also considering activities that promote student wellness in these distressing times.
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.
Switching over to e-learning hasn’t been easy, and many educators have struggled with how to adapt their curriculum and lesson plans to an online environment. However, many experts note that teachers should not expect to become experts overnight and treat the shift as a learning experience.
