Remote Learning 101 in the Time of COVID-19
What reporters need to know as students, schools, and families adjust to the new reality of distance teaching and learning
For millions of K-12 students, remote learning at home has replaced bricks-and-mortar classrooms for the foreseeable future, as districts comply with orders to shut down schools in response to the coronavirus pandemic.
What do reporters need to know about remote teaching and learning? How is the shift playing out across the country? What are compelling story ideas for reporters covering the day-to-day aspects of this experiment in remote learning, as well as big-picture angles for down the road?
Hear from an education journalist who has covered online learning for years, and an education researcher who is tracking developments.
