Learning in the Time of COVID
Connection, connected, connect – these words had deep meaning for DCD before the pandemic took us into the world of distance learning and virtual schooling.
Noun, adjective, or verb, we use a version of “connect” to talk about many things at DCD; the relationships between teachers, students, colleagues, parents, and classmates; the linkages leveraged in the different parts of our curriculum; and how as a community or as individuals we relate to and engage with the broader world.
With the pandemic and our nation’s renewed fight for racial equity, these words have taken on yet another dimension. The power of “connectedness” continues to drive everything we do – a reconfigured learning community that functions in this temporary state of physical separation and a curriculum that continues to embrace and teach racial equality at every age. Our community is resilient, flexible, and creative and has proven its ability to deliver an education that is challenging, inclusive, and engaging whether in person or from a distance.
