DC Collaborative Distance Learning Resource Database
Launching the Distance Resource Learning Database
In the database, you will find a compilation of online and printable arts and humanities learning resources for students, teachers, and families. It is our hope that that materials on this database will be used to enhance arts and humanities education, equitably, inside or outside of the classroom.
The database will be continuously updated with curricular guides, virtual field trips, and other educational activities to enhance students’ at-home learning experiences as well as Professional Development for educators.
We Need Your Online/ Printable Education Resources!
The DC Collaborative launched Distance Learning Resource Database in response to COVID-19 for schools to share with educators, students and parents/ caregivers! Together, let's help our schools provide digital and printable learning opportunities from our arts and humanities organizations!
