Introducing PLTW’s Distance Learning Support
PLTW’s distance learning support is a full suite of resources created by PLTW that schools can utilize to enhance their distinct distance learning needs. Support for both educators and caregivers will be available through different platforms such as distance learning guides, training, webinars, and more. These new resources equip teachers and caregivers with the confidence, knowledge, and skills to facilitate learning that empowers students wherever learning takes place this fall.
PLTW’s distance learning support includes curricular enhancements embedded in the existing PLTW instructional method and delivery platform that provides alternative activities for students in a distance learning environment. These enhancements will remain hands-on and engaging with supplies and equipment that are safe and feasible to transport for use at home, including: Chromebook-compatible software to maximize accessibility. This enables students to continue developing the knowledge, skills, and objectives found in our existing curriculum while helping them to achieve their educational milestones despite potential changes in their learning environment.
