Edtech Bridges the Remote Learning Gap
In the last couple of weeks, schools all over the world have temporarily closed their doors to prevent the spread of COVID-19. We’re fortunate to live in an age where distance learning, when necessary, is not only possible but effective and enriching. And we’re fortunate to have adaptable educators who can handle circumstances like these with care and ingenuity.
Edtech can make all the difference when it comes to making remote learning more immersive, engaging, and socially fulfilling for students. Here are some edtech essentials to introduce to your virtual classroom.
