There’s also a “Teach from Home toolkit,” which has resources about how to teach remotely organized into a series of slides.Teach from Home is currently only available in English, but the downloadable toolkits are available in Danish, German, Spanish, French, Italian, and Polish, and Google says more languages are “coming soon.
” YouTube’s resource, [email protected], highlights educational YouTube channels that students can watch at home. The page categorizes the channels that are recommended for families with kids 13 and older, for families  with kids five and older, and for families with preschoolers.
players YouTube is partnering with Khan Academy and other education-focused creators on the effort, and some channels highlighted include CrashCourse, Discovery Education, Cool School, PBS Kids, and Sesame Street.
