How Distance Learning Fosters Global Collaboration

My second monthly article for NEO has been published.  The title is, How Distance Learning Fosters Global Collaboration, and it may have some helpful resources for you.  (Last month’s article was, How to Use Design Thinking in the Classroom.)  For additional resources on global collaboration, you might also want to refer to this post.

As always, I would love to hear any comments or recommendations for topics of future posts.  I am currently working on the rough draft for next month, which is about integrating S.T.E.A.M. into distance learning, and I welcome any ideas you think should be included!

Smithsonian Distance Learning Resources

I recently mentioned the Smithsonian Learning Lab in this post , which features some great lessons for Women’s History Month.  Now, the incredible educators at Smithsonian have a page of links to resources they have specifically curated for distance learning during this time of quarantine.  It includes information on how to use the Learning Lab, links for learning more about COVID-19, and resource collections with a national audience in mind.  In addition, there are D.C. specific lessons (which are separated by grade level, and can certainly be used whenever they fit in any curriculum), lessons for caregivers to use with children, and resources for tweens and teens.  The last two categories also include games and maker activity links.

Thanks to the Smithsonian for providing these well-organized spreadsheets full of links that will appeal to any age group and in any subject!
