Our district, like many in the Chicago area, had another cold weather day off yesterday. That didn't stop learning, however. Students, teachers, and administrators took to Twitter with the hashtag #EG1to1 to share how they were still working and learning on their day off.
Some students were on Schoology working on math and physics homework; others were taking English or psychology quizzes. Our music students are constantly rehearsing. Administrators and teachers were presenting at conferences. Mr. Janu even ran a "cold day radio broadcast."
While we understand that not all homes have internet access, it is amazing to see how resourceful students are and how many are taking ownership of their own learning--even on days off!
