(StatePoint) The past year has demonstrated the importance of digital learning. And 
thanks to a variety of tools and resources that helped make remote instruction a little 
less stressful on everyone, teachers, students and parents quickly adapted to the changes 
brought on by the pandemic. 


Music has been a particularly difficult subject to provide instruction for at a distance. 
However, educational foundations have risen to the occasion by creating a trove of resources 
to aid learning. For example, the Save the Music Foundation provides free activities 
for families, tools for educators to create their own online tutorials and more. 


Remote learning has only added new challenges to an already difficult subject. The good 
news is that online tools are helping fill the gaps created by the new normal. Check out the 
Casio Cares education site, which is chock full of free math resources for students, parents 
and educators. Tools include emulator calculator software, curriculum support materials, 
live webinars and remotely-delivered teacher training. Plus, Casio’s free all-in-one web-
based mathematics software,, which is geared for K-12 and beyond, delivers 
an accessible, interactive and personalized approach to mathematics. Its functions include 
graphing, geometry, calculation, statistics and more. 

In addition to online activities and video tutorials, Casio also offers a weekly educational 
webinar series focused on mathematics on its YouTube channel, covering such subjects as 
elementary and middle school math, algebra I and II, geometry, pre-calculus, calculus and 
statistics. All webinars are recorded and can be accessed any time. 

Creative Writing 

English and creative writing teachers are turning to new platforms to help build their 
student’s writing skills in a variety of creative genres. One example is Storybird, which features 
hundreds of courses and challenges. If your child’s teachers haven’t caught onto the 
trend, no worries, parents can also sign up for an account for their children. 

Even after classrooms reopen nationwide, one thing is certain, with so many amazing 
resources available to help educators teach and students learn, digital learning tools are 
here to stay.
