This free, open-access digital hub was created to help keep students learning while school schedules are disrupted by the Coronavirus pandemic, which is increasingly affecting millions of students.
The Scholastic Learn At Home digital hub supports virtual learning plans, with open access to daily learning journeys. Learning is divided into four sections based on grade level, and covers ELA, STEM, Science, Social Studies, and Social-Emotional Learning. The hub provides approximately three hours of learning opportunities per day, for up to four weeks of instruction.
The free hub provides a great opportunity for teachers to plan virtual learning meetups to discuss and expand on any of its resources. It’s accessible on any device, and no sign up is required. Scholastic plans to keep it free and open indefinitely.
In addition, the editors of Scholastic Classroom Magazines also launched a collection of student-friendly resources for learning about the Coronavirus. The resources aim to ease students’ fears and empower them with age-appropriate information, helping them to learn what is being done to keep them safe and how to prevent germs from spreading.
For educators using the Livingtree Engage school communication platform to engage families in remote and home learning, these are excellent online resources to share and work into learning plans.
