Across the globe, schools have cancelled in-person classes and have shifted to an online education environment. Whether or not the pandemic is controlled before the next school year begins, it is likely that many school districts will recognize the value and the cost-savings of providing some of their instruction online. We may see a shift toward digital learning in the future of education, so we've rounded up these resources to help schools be successful.
Benefits of Online Learning
Having the ability to work at your own pace often allows kids to move more quickly through material. Teachers can provide more directed support to students as they need it; there are a number of tools available that support communication and collaboration between teachers and students as well as students with each other. The drawback, of course, is the need for high-speed internet, which not all students will have easy access to.

There are a number of resources available for school districts and teachers that we have collected here.
