Arizona State Compiles Free Resources for Remote K–12 Learners
- By Dian Schaffhauser
State University has developed a hub to support remote
learners "at any age." ASU
for You consists of a collection of content, courses,
training videos, tutoring, textbook replacements, professional
development for educators, and workforce retraining resources.
Among free K-12
resources are these:
scheduled by subject (math, English language arts, science and
social studies) and available through Zoom sessions.
A catalog of
free online course materials, from from art history to world
to help teachers and parents make the move to remote instruction,
including topics on learning management systems, student information
systems, effective communication, parent engagement and maintaining
links for teachers to help them on the transition, based on student
grade level and modality (real-time, on-demand and blended).
links for parents about how to set schedules and where to go for
specific kinds of lessons.
The main hub is
the ASU website.
