Guide to K-12 Online Educational Resources

March 25, 2020

In the past few weeks, we have seen major changes in the world and in the classroom. Schools across the country have shut their physical doors and slowly opened the door to online learning. The Professional Institute for Educators (PIE) at UArts is here to help you navigate your next steps as an educator. 

Two of our distinguished Educational Technology faculty members, Maria Geiger and Cindy Willits, have assembled resources that may benefit you as you work to keep your students actively engaged in an online learning environment. Our No. 1 priority at this time is to help you develop new skills, so you can keep your students on track and become a resource to your colleagues. You can view the resources below.
