Virtual Learning
is Here to Stay

To ensure successful virtual learning programs, we must improve our online learning strategies, especially for students of color facing economic insecurity. Adapting our online learning projects to meet the needs of students while keeping them connected, engaged, and motivated is the key to successful PBL implementation.

We created this resource to provide a host of ideas, examples, and tools that can help guide you along your Online Learning journey with PBL. Before you jump in, check out these helpful tips that will lead to success in your virtual classroom.

A Few General Tips

  • Lead with compassion and care. Connection matters most. Students want to see their friends and hear from their teachers. 
  • Be mindful of family situations and stressors. Family dynamics impact students in every way. Keep this in mind as you work with students while guiding them through projects and academic experiences.
  • Provide as much voice and choice as possible for students. This is very important when assessing how students share what they are learning. Consider needs and how you can provide support and resources to help them be successful.
