School closures and distance learning are upon many of us.

There will likely be more in the foreseeable future.

There appears to be no end of resources and advice for older children already “plugged in” to the internet through a learning management system or organizational framework like Google but what about the younger ones?

This post will share ideas for younger learners like:

  1. Managing feedback
  2. Maintaining engagement
  3. Checking in on block programmers with the Tynker platform (now made free for the interim)

  1. Thanks, Sean. Nice, simple to understand videos. Our international school uses SeeSaw which operates much the same way. Kids have their own school issued iPads, however, and so can respond independently of their parents.

    Here’s an example of what I have been sending to the elementary students daily:
