The COVID-19 pandemic changed the reality of instruction at Good Shepherd Catholic School. Within just a few days of receiving the stay at home order in March, our teachers and administration were able to quickly make the transition to teaching students from home. Each teacher was able to utilize technological tools to ensure each student continued with the curriculum as planned, despite learning from home.
Teachers utilized tools like Zoom, Google Apps for Education, Google Classroom, Applied Digital Learning, Flip-Grid, Discovery Education, EdPuzzle and more as ways to maintain face-to-face contact with students, easily allow students to collaborate and work on projects, assign work and use it as learning resources.
Despite staying at home, students from all grades finished the unprecedented year strong. Assignments were completed and shared with classmates virtually. Some students were even able to virtually go on field trips that were unfortunately cancelled due to COVID-19.
