Project HELP Remote Learning

Educating students takes on a whole new meaning during these unprecedented times and remote learning may be utilized to support learning in a safe way during the COVID-19 outbreak. Learning may take many different forms as there maybe in-person learning within the classroom, remote learning within the home or a combination of the two. All instructional programs, whatever form that takes, will be designed with an emphasis on continuity of learning despite the impact of our national health crisis and based on guidance from the Illinois State Board of Education.

What is Remote Learning?

Remote learning is learning that happens outside of the traditional classroom because the student and teacher are separated by distance and/or time. Remote learning can be real-time or flexibility timed, and it may or may not involve technology to achieve the following goals:

Remote learning will have:

  • Direct, planned, routine, 1:1 contact with each child’s family (e.g. phone calls, emails, text messages, Class Dojo,etc) to touch base with parents and caregivers each day to support the learning at home.

  • Weekly choice boards that build on the curricula to expand classroom learning.

  • Activity kits (markers, crayons, glue sticks, blocks, puzzles, books, etc.) for children that align with the choice boards that will support learning at home

  • Useful links that will support learning within the home environment
