    Dear Hispanic,
    Through this difficult time of disconnect, we are making it a high priority to continue to be a resource for our community. Each week we will send out emails with resources, fun articles, and an array of good news.
    During this time of social distancing, we want to hear from all of you. Join the conversation by sharing articles, resources, tools, and tips for our community.
    Parents - How are you balancing work, home, and now school life with your kid(s)? What tips, tricks, or schedules are using to keep your family organized?
    Teachers - What resources, technology are you using to educate your students? Do your students have adequate technology and internet access? What materials or needs to you have for you and/or your students?
    There are some great recourses to keep you and your child(ren)/student(s) engaged during this time. Below is a list of resources from Educator Temporary School Closure for Online Learning.
    • Bringing the Outside In — Here are a few of my picks for connecting to the world. It’s mostly geared towards parents, but teachers may find some of the resources useful.
    • Online Teaching Resources — This collection includes iOS apps recommended to colleagues for basic tasks. It’s not a comprehensive list as we wanted to keep things fairly simple. Planning resources, articles of interest, and general teaching resources are also included. We highly recommend joining this Facebook group and looking at the folder of continuous learning plans put together by international schools. Our international school friends have been leading the #remotelearning life for a while now and we can learn a great deal from them.
    • Step Guide to Zoom — Here’s a step guide to hosting and joining Zoom video conference meetings on a computer and iPad. We included a few other resources and tips for success.
    Want to share? Email your tips, tricks, and free resources to Hannah Gerth, Global Ed Manager OR share on our Facebook page - World Affairs Council - Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky.
