The COVID-19 outbreak has led to disruption across all walks of life. It has been nothing short of inspiring to see teachers across the world take it upon themselves to do all that they can to ensure continuity of learning for their students. Resources, lesson plans, encouragement, and wisdom have all been shared generously, beyond borders. Teachers, we salute your grit and passion!
At Toddle, we have been working round the clock over the last two weeks to build features that will support teachers implement remote learning more meaningfully. Here is a list of things that Toddle now enables school teams to do while working in a remote learning environment:
