Common Sense Media Launches Free Distance Learning Resources [web resource]
On April 1, Common Sense Media launched Wide Open School, a set of free online resources to support families and educators who are transitioning to remote learning as a result of the coronavirus. Curated and coordinated by the experts at Common Sense, Wide Open School is the result of a collaboration among leading publishers, nonprofits, and education and technology companies.
Wide Open School features a free collection of the best learning experiences and activities for kids, organized by grade band and subject. You will also find daily schedules with creative breaks and recommendations to keep kids engaged and exploring, one day (or one hour) at a time.
The Wide Open School team notes that they aim to play a part in closing the digital divide by offering many resources that can be completed offline and on smartphones, as well as bilingual and English-language learner resources.
