This is a blog post by our Assistant Head Charles Franklin, who describes how distance learning has evolved from spring 2020 to fall 2020 incorporating community feedback and best practices for online instruction.
In these uncertain times, boys need structure, flexibility, inspiration, and connection more than ever. Landon's plan for learning in 2020-21 is designed to provide our boys with meaningful, engaging experiences through distance, hybrid, or on-campus instruction and to retain our sense of community during a school closure.
Our education has always been about more than beautiful spaces and facilities. It’s about knowing how to reach boys whether on campus or at home. And it is rooted in the relationships between boys and teachers they respect—teachers whose creativity and dedication enhance every boy’s experience. No matter the platform or channel, boys thrive at Landon because we design and adapt our program to fit the ways boys learn best.
