It’s no secret that our education system has been faced with disruption and unprecedented challenges in providing instruction to students during this global pandemic. Many schools have been forced to temporarily move their instruction online due to social distancing. Still, unlike times of the past, we can continue providing education even when our school buildings close.
At Northern Pennsylvania Regional College (NPRC), the health and safety of our students and community remained at the forefront of our minds during this pandemic. In March, we were able to quickly adapt to this new remote climate by moving our site-based teaching to a new, point-to-point delivery of education directly to our students’ homes. Because of this shift, technology resources were also provided to students who did not previously have access to secure broadband connections in their homes.
While NPRC has made the conscious decision to continue remote course offerings through Fall 2020, we still face some uncertainty surrounding COVID-19 and the future of our education systems. One of the most important things to remember during this time is that you can always be in control of your learning. Whether you are in elementary school, middle school, high school, or college, your educational success is our number one priority. Here are some tips you can use to thrive in remote or online learning environments.
With the pandemic as well the vast social and racial unrest in the country, we know these are challenging times for all students, teachers, parents, and communities. We will come out of this better and stronger than ever if we can all stick together.
