Distance Learning Strategies for K-2 Teachers

Registration Open: A Week of Virtual PD for K-2 Teachers
You’re invited to a week of free, virtual learning with PBS KIDS. Hear from teachers across the country as they share successes and lessons learned in the transition to distance learning this past spring. Their stories of how they connected with families, used media and tech to encourage creation, and tackled distance learning in the absence of tech will provide inspiration and foundational tips you can use to prepare for an uncertain year – where some kind of distance learning is likely to be a reality.
Join us from August 3 – 6 for four days of online learning and fun with a community of teachers like you!

Your Week at a Glance
Your week of virtual learning will start and end with LIVE, online learning events with other K-2 teachers. The middle of the week will feature daily, asynchronous challenges emailed each morning that you can do on your own time, to continue your learning and build upon distance learning themes and strategies.
