PLTW’s distance learning support, which includes alternate distance learning activities, was developed to maximize the supplies and equipment you already purchase as part of your course implementation. It is highly recommended that schools purchase all supplies and equipment needed to teach each course in its entirety to allow students to participate in the full curriculum when they are in the classroom. Embedded within the distance learning curriculum enhancements there are directives to when and how to deliver those supplies to keep your students on track if learning takes place outside of the classroom.

Created in partnership with Verizon, this online toolkit offers hands-on k-12 STEM activities that students can leverage wherever learning takes place while also helping teachers supplement their lesson plans. Caregivers can supplement at-home learning with activities created by PLTW focused on learning new skills, such as virtual reality, augmented reality, 3D design, and more. Access is free – all you need is a tablet, phone, and/or laptop.
