Wherever learning takes place, PLTW supports you.
Frequently Asked Questions
PLTW’s distance learning support will consist of multiple tools that you can use to best meet the individual needs of each community. These tools will include, but are not limited to, webinars, PLTW network-created resources, and embedded distance learning alternatives directly within the curriculum.
We began releasing PLTW’s distance learning support in fall 2020, which includes resources such as webinars, PLTW network-created resources, increased teacher guidance, and embedded distance learning enhancements to our curriculum.
All PLTW distance learning support resources are still available to use based on the individual needs of each community. We are continuously monitoring the educational landscape and will update and add resources if necessary.
We will continue serving students and teachers wherever learning takes place, and we will currently support access to our distance learning support to all active PLTW programs.
We've worked to making accessing PLTW’s distance learning support as simple as possible for both educators and students. Currently, the suite of resources is available to all active PLTW programs through their annual participation fee.
We've designed our distance learning enhancements to continue the hands-on experience with materials that are already part of the program kits, and are safe and feasible to transport and use at home. Our goal is to enable transitions so that students can get the in-classroom experience when possible and then pivot to distance learning when needed.
Schools should ensure they have all supplies listed in the Store in myPLTW as they have in past years. There are no additional materials required to support the PLTW distance learning enhancements.
Recordings are available on our Upcoming Events page. You will need to share your email address to gain access to all past webinars.
