The current COVID-19 crisis has put teachers, teachers assistants, administrators and school boards in an unprecedented position to figure out how to best support learning during times of uncertainty. The answer to the question posed is pretty straight forward: “we have no idea!” We “have no idea” because it’s impossible to know the future as things are changing globally on a daily basis. 


Schools have done a tremendous job adjusting to the circumstances of virtual learning in a short amount of time, but really were not given the proper training and time to ensure the impact on learning they are aiming for with today’s learners. However, when schools eventually return to a sense of normalcy, the social and emotional needs of our learners will be the number one priority.
