NEW ONLINE LEARNING PAGE UNDER RESOURCES
The library has created a list of free, quality online learning tools and games for kiddos out of school during the coronavirus pandemic. Please keep in mind that online learning tools are never a complete substitution for a great teacher! We love our teachers and homeschooling parents, and these tools are wonderful supplementary learning tools for children especially at a time when school is out. The full list is available by going to the Resources tab and then Online Learning. Here's a quick link so you can check it out: Online Learning Resources
One of the most amazing learning online resources that made our list is the non-profit educational organization, Khan Academy. Why is it so amazing? The videos are high quality, and the viewer can stop, rewind, etc. to review the content. It covers a ton of K through 12 topics from early math to AP Physics and everything in between! Independent reviewers (and users) give Khan Academy positive reviews on content, ease of use, features, and overall learning experience! Again, this is a completely FREE resource but has the same quality offered by other e-learning platforms like Coursera and Pluralsight that charge for access. Here's a 31-minute webinar about getting started with Khan Academy:
