Streamlining Learning Management System (LMS) Platforms

Family & Community Distance Learning Resources for Districts

The AESD will be developing learning platform-specific resources to assist districts in working with families, community organizations, and child care providers as they support students with distance learning.

Materials will include customizable and translated presentation materials (PowerPoint slides, presenter scripts, and resource links) for districts to use with families and community partners.

What is a Learning Management System (LMS)?

As parents/caregivers, how do we make sense of all the digital tools that seem to be required for the “new normal” of remote learning? An LMS or Learning Management System is one such tool being used by school districts across WA and many other states to help families stay connected to their child’s teacher, school and classmates.

Creating an At-Home Learning System/Schedule

Now more than ever, parents/caregivers supporting students at home need structure to help them stay organized. Creating a schedule and healthy routines can energize and provide peace and purpose during this time of distance (remote) learning.

Support Like a Coach

With the shift to online learning, many parents/caregivers are having to support their children’s education in ways they never imagined. Thinking of yourself as your child’s coach can help you and your family tap into success as you navigate together the new way of doing school.

Encourage a Growth Mindset and Why Struggle is Good for Learning

As teaching and learning moves from the classroom to the living room, parents/caregivers and students must reframe their thinking to navigate the challenges of remote learning. Encouraging a growth mindset and understanding why struggle is necessary for learning are keys to overcoming these challenges.
