Welcome to the Emergency Online Teaching--What Works for Mississippi Guide. With the advent of the COVID-19 pandemic in March 2020, K-12 schools across Mississippi were faced with a sudden and unprecedented need for alternative and innovative instructional delivery models. Many school districts turned to partial or full online instruction to ensure students could continue to learn while also staying safe. What have we learned and how can Mississippi do it even better, in the event of future emergency online teaching?
The goal of this Library Guide is to act as a clearinghouse where public officials, education policy makers, K-12 administrators, Mississippi teachers, and the general public can find credible, useful information specific to Mississippi’s needs for online instruction. Some of the materials linked here include:
results of Mississippi-specific educational research studies
state and local news articles related to Mississippi’s online learning efforts
online teaching resources identified as highly successful by Mississippi’s own teachers
resources for K-12 administrators related to technology resources and decision-making
national and regional research publications, reports, policy briefs and recommendations
