Prepped for hurricanes, Miami pivoted quickly to online classes. Could Seattle learn from the experience?

One by one, the Mourning High students unmuted themselves. Across the Zoom grid, mics lit up as they said, “That was amazing.”

They had just watched their classmate Stephanie’s video for Advanced Placement Psychology. The assignment: to create a set of meaningful “moments” of trying something new, expressing gratitude and sharing three activities she loves. In the video, Stephanie cooked dinner for her family while narrating it like a TV chef, set the table with nice plates and goblets and danced to Latin American music with her dad. 

“In the pandemic, I thought, we’ve lost sight of some of the things that bring us joy,” Miami teacher Molly Winters Diallo told her students. Two full screens of heads nodded in agreement. “This is my favorite project that I’ve done in high school,” one of the students said. 

Unlike Seattle, Miami isn’t known as a tech hub. And its school district

Old learning concept can help students without resources learn online amid the pandemic

DENVER (KDVR) – Schools long-used to in-person classes have been forced to try new tactics to keep students safe amid the COVID-19 pandemic, and some are turning to an old concept to make online learning more successful.

Thousands of students in the Adams 12 school district are getting a boost in their remote education with the help of learning pods, a years-old concept that physically brings students together in a common space with adult support.

“It’s a lot more helpful because we get to be with someone who could help us in our classroom,” said 10-year-old Christina Chavez, a 5th grader at Hillcrest Elementary School.  “At home, our parents could (help me), but sometimes they couldn’t understand all the stuff because it’s different from what they learned.”

Opinion | What We Can Learn From the Rise and Fall of ‘Political Blackness’

What about the ADOS movement? If ADOS activists flounder — they have fixed their gaze on slavery reparations and are intent that the wrong people don’t get in on the action — it will be because their certain-Black-lives-matter-more approach proves politically misjudged. An ambitious goal like reparations may require broad support, and in turn a broad conception of “Black.” Skeptics might think that, as with the prospectors and fortune hunters of “The Treasure of the Sierra Madre,” ADOS’s determination to keep the rewards for themselves imperils the chances of anyone getting them.

By contrast, let’s say you’re concerned about colorism. You might have been among those who were indignant when Zoe Saldana, a light-skinned Black woman, was cast in a biopic about Nina Simone, a dark-skinned Black woman. But if you want to talk about such prejudice, you’ll have to insist on one of the ways in which all Black

A New Survey from the Brand Reveals the Need for Ongoing Science Education

More than 9 in 10 of parents of school-aged kids (91%) feel that having the whole family learn about how to prevent the spread of bacteria would result in a healthier household, according to a new survey from Microban 24, a revolution in home sanitizing that protects surfaces against bacteria for 24 hours*.

Five ways you can kelp kids learn better in online school right now

1. Customize their school space

It’s good to have a dedicated education space at home, with a work surface, a comfortable seat that supports proper posture, and required materials handy. But there’s no one-size-fits-all setup, says Laura Dudley, an associate clinical professor of applied psychology at Northeastern University.

The best desk won’t matter if other aspects of the environment are off. You want to consider factors such as temperature, light, and noise level, and minimize impediments and distractions that affect your child. Some kids might like the background noise of home life, and others might be intimidated to speak during Zoom calls because other people at home could hear them.

You can’t control everything, but you can move a distracting television, or hang up a sheet for privacy. “The biggest thing is to help your child figure out the conditions under which they work best,” she says.

2. Create opportunities

COVID-19 and schools: Advice from Houston educators to parents struggling with helping kids learn from home

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) — Virtual learning is well underway for many school children across Southeast Texas, and some school districts have returned to in-person instruction, like Fort Bend ISD.

Fort Bend ISD Superintendent Dr. Charles Dupre said some students need an in-person learning environment to thrive.

“We have many students [that] need more direct interaction, those kinds of things,” he said.

But many parents, for whom virtual learning is the only option, are struggling to balance their new roles as teachers and technology experts with their already-existing responsibilities.

Kinsey Wall, a mother of two boys who attend a Houston ISD school, said her family is doing their best to support the children, but that it can be challenging.

Two weeks into the school year, Monique Snyder had to tell a dozen working parents that they would have to find somewhere else for their children to learn online.

Like many child care providers in the Detroit area, Snyder has opened her centers to young K-12 students whose classrooms remained closed due to the coronavirus pandemic. But Snyder learned this month that the state won’t subsidize care during the school day for children from low-income families.

She told desperate parents that they would have to pay her out of pocket or find another place for their children to learn.

“It was horrible,” said Snyder, whose business is already in danger of closing due to the pandemic. “The biggest question they kept asking me was, ‘What am I supposed to do?’ And I literally did
