Humanizing Virtual Learning

Linda Vasu, who leads curriculum development at Sacred Heart Greenwich, shares insight into the new realm of virtual learning.

It’s Not the Building. It’s the People.

We miss the community that breathes life into our school every day; students laughing in the halls. teachers walking through the rows to correct work in real-time, morning announcements filled with athletic news, prayers, the Pledge of Allegiance and birthday wishes. These sounds are what make a school building come alive. This energy is what makes a building a school - and what makes us a home away from home.

Greenwich Alliance for Education Pivots to Meet Needs

With the transformation from school-based education to distance learning, the Greenwich Alliance for Education is pivoting to meet the short and long-term needs of the Greenwich Public Schools, both for teachers and students. They continue to focus, in particular, on the educational needs of the AVID community – teachers, students, and alums - as many of the AVID students are those being provided food and other human service needs through other agencies. The Alliance is funding requests for school supplies and books, teaching Tuning In To Music lessons via Skype, and working with their grantees to provide virtual content. The Alliance can handle more of these educational requests right away and is in contact with school administrators and other non-profit organizations to determine needs as they arise. .
