Provide Learning Materials and Tools
Nothing disrupts a person's ability to do planned tasks more than having to stop and find the materials and tools that are needed for the task. Virtual learning experiences don't just require a device. Students who are learning virtually should also have the following materials and tools available to them:
- Paper, pencils and pens
- Calculator, ruler, compass, counters (e.g., dry beans) or other items to support math
- Textbooks, trade books, composition notebooks and other necessary curriculum resources provided by your student's teacher
- Phone, iPad or computer with camera for taking pictures of work and/or recording videos of learning demonstrations
The above list is not exhaustive. If it changes, guidance will be provided to parents and caregivers.
