It’s been incredible to see how quickly educators and families have adapted to distance learning. Curriculum, technologies, and ways of communication between teachers, students, and families have changed to ensure children can still learn. This shift to remote education has been difficult but essential with COVID-19, and Yup applauds the teachers, principals, parents, and students who have made it possible!
In a follow up to our initial Remote Learning article, Yup’s Learning Team checked in with teachers, administrators, and Yup Families across the country to hear what has been especially helpful during this time.
Lesson #1: Parent and teacher support is the foundation of a successful student
Lesson #2: In the end, students drive their own engagement and success
Lesson #3: Students will be tough on themselves; it’s up to us to elevate them
This remains an unprecedented and tough time for teachers, students, and families. Remote education presents a number of challenges; it also pushes students to develop the skills of independence and self-learning that are necessary later in life, especially in college. We’re excited to see students who are conquering these obstacles now continue to excel in their educational career, knowing that they’ve already gone through tougher circumstances than anyone else in their shoes before!
