We’ve all heard the term “uncertain times” more often than we can count recently. No one knows for sure what school is going to look like when August rolls around, and now that summer is upon us, school leaders everywhere are trying to plan for how best to support students in the future. For many, this will include a digital Learning Management System (LMS) to support in-classroom instruction which can also be used if social isolation again becomes a reality. If done well, this could be a valuable tool year-round regardless of whether students are in the classroom or required to participate in distance learning. Learn how one school, Gulf Coast Academy, has implemented Moodle, a free LMS system, during Covid-19 as a successful digital platform. The school will share the various tools they’ve used and the lessons they’ve learned over the last few weeks. Join us, and let us know what you are thinking about how your school will address this critical support area in the fall!
