Content Resources

At ISA, we’re experiencing the unfolding of the pandemic as you are. The impact on educators, students, families, and communities around the world is immeasurable. In many communities, educators are working hard to get lessons online and to remain in contact with students. Many students and families are also striving to support their students’ learning at home.

How can ISA help? First off, if you have a question or concern about instruction in this new age, ping us at our Twitter feed or via our contact us page, and we can get you help. This might include virtual coaching for principals and teachers as they consider this new form of teaching and learning. Lastly, what about social and emotional support for your students, support that can be embedded in instruction? Please contact us and we’d be glad to help.

Here’s a list of resources, which is not an inclusive list; the below represents what we found to be useful over the last few weeks. If you have something to add to this page, feel free to send it to us. Thanks – and keep safe and healthy and learning.
