During this challenging time for educators and their students, staff here at AdoptAClassroom.org will share tips and resources that we hear about that may be helpful for you. This is not advertising. We are not making money off of this, and we are not endorsing products, services, or companies. Just sharing things that might be helpful for the educators we support.
Distant Learning Resource for K-12 Educators
As schools prepare for COVID-19, many teachers may find themselves distance teaching for the first time in their career.
RingCentral, the cloud-based business communications system, is offering three months of RingCentral Office for free to K-12 educators who need to teach remotely during this difficult time. Here at AdoptAClassroom.org, we use RingCentral Office to stay connected, especially while we’re working remotely during the coming weeks.
School staff and teachers can use RingCentral Office to keep in contact with each other and their students with video conferencing capabilities, team messaging, and screen sharing. Educators can also call their students’ guardians for updates and check ins without having to use personal cell phones.
We learned about this in a recent blog post by RingCentral that you can link to here.
AdoptAClassroom.org will continue to share advice, insights and tips for educators regarding distance learning, as well as resources available to support them during this time, through our newsletter, social media channels, and blog. If you have tips that you think we should share with other educators, let us know by emailing us at [email protected].
