  • Read first: How to use this community

    This community has been created to help educators respond to the challenges created by COVID-19. Volunteers and staff from ISTE and ISTE's affiliates and partners are here to help answer questions and provide guidance.

    To make sure that this is a safe and supportive community for all educators, we ask that:

    • No one uses this space as a platform for making a sales pitch. Solicitors will be removed from the community.
    • Community members focus on solutions rather than fear-mongering or misinformation.
    • Community members agree to follow our standard Code of Conduct.

    For even more resources around how to adapt to changes in education during this time, ISTE and our partner organizations are curating strategies, tips and best practices for teaching online. Visit for more information.
