Idaho Digital Learning Alliance offers educators, parents digital resources

For schools:

Idaho’s state run online school, the Idaho Digital Learning Alliance, is offering digital support to schools that are moving classrooms online in response to COVID-19.

The school is offering what it calls “eDay” resources, ranging from webinars for teachers to access to online textbooks.

  • An ongoing “eDays for teachers” webinar will help teachers navigate Google Meet as a digital classroom, and go over tools they can use  to interact with students.
  • The “Day in the Life” of a remote teacher webinar covers “recreating an average day in your face-to-face classroom,” and maintaining relationships and community in a remote setting.
  • IDLA is also hosting specialized webinars for administrators, tech directors and special education directors.

Teachers can access the full schedule for these webinars, and recordings of past webinars, here.

IDLA is also offering live support for teachers or staff who need individual help.

Educators have to fill out this form to get access to the IDLA resources.

For more information, visit the IDLA eDay support website or call IDLA at 208-324-0207.

For parents:

IDLA and the State Department of Education have compiled all kinds of free online educational lessons for kids at the Parent Educational Resource Center.

Resources are compiled by grade level and include academic lessons, a news website with nonfiction articles designed for students at multiple reading levels and choose-your-own adventure history games.
