Overview

The Digital Education Hub is an online resource that provides educators and families with Education, Networking, and Resources through tutorials, model lesson plans, and mini-courses to address the challenges of remote and hybrid learning due to COVID-19.

We recognize that the role of parents and families in the learning process are even more important than in “typical” times and that educational inequalities are greatly magnified during times of crisis. The critical issues that have arisen because of COVID-19 are not new, so the Digital Education Hub seeks long-term changes in dispositions, instructional decisions, curriculum and materials design, and policy.

Through this process, we identified five areas to address through the Digital Education Hub:
