As the first stages of school shut-downs began mid-March, Lakewood School moved quickly and efficiently to provide continuous learning online.
In addition to providing online learning materials, teachers made daily videos introducing students to the day’s learning opportunities, and met at least twice per week for live classroom video chats. This gave students an opportunity to meet with the teachers and staff they’re used to seeing every day, as well as their friends and classmates.
During these online video chats, the teachers interacted with the students, oftentimes utilizing creative and fun activities such as scavenger hunts, show-and-tell, Kahoot! trivia games, online escape rooms, and online games. Other times, the video chats simply gave students a chance to socialize and check in with one another.
