Last week nearly 200 people joined us for the launch of RemoteED.org. This is a resource developed by University at Albany (SUNY) faculty and graduate students to support K-12 teachers to move into the remote environment.
The site contains:
*Advice from experts about how to transition to Remote instruction.
*A curated collection of nearly 200 free educational resources available to teachers and parents to support student learning. The collection includes both brief descriptions and links to resources.
*Options to view resources by either subject matter or grade level.
*Calendar of upcoming community events where teachers can connect with each other through virtual writing workshops, Twitter chats, or interactive learning sessions hosted on Zoom.
*Links to blogs from our colleagues at NYKids focused on navigating the new remote learning environment, including supporting literacy instruction remotely and understanding the role of schools as family support systems in the current era.
Because of technical difficulties, we re-recorded the launch video for RemoteED.org. The video now provides an overview of the site, support and resources for teachers and families, ideas for moving courses into remote learning, and more information about our upcoming community connections events.

The challenges that we all now face are best approached through collaboration across the education community and we hope that this website will be a hub for all of us working throughout the cradle-to-career pipeline to work together to support the ongoing learning of students.
