Digital Learning in Special Ed

Amid the COVID-19 pandemic currently throwing all of us in education for an unplanned loop (and the rest of the world), as educators we are naturally born ready to handle whatever is thrown at us.

In the VIP Facebook Group, we’ve been talking about distance learning, online learning, distance education, digital learning… it has a lot of names, but basically it means no school and your students are learning from home right now.

While distance education or e-learning may not be a current occurrence for you and your students, this is a very real thing taking educators through yet another loop we didn’t plan for. And tele-learning can look a lot of different ways, so I wanted to share a few ideas for digital learning.

During this time, as adults we are stressed out… but we also need to take a step back and remember to keep our students informed as well. This All About COVID-19 Adapted Book is free in the Resource Library, or here on TpT.

When it comes time to prepare work for students to complete at home, you have to think of all of your students. Digital learning resources are the easiest way to provide work for your students. But remember that not all students have access to technology or reliable WiFi at home, so don’t forget to send some simple print-and-go packets home too.
