COVID-19 challenges Senior Lift to be prepared and proficient to perform and deliver effective teaching methods in the midst of a global pandemic environment. This is our mindset for this moment as we operate in the shadow of a global pandemic that is somewhat disoriented and coupled with limitations. We are transitioning to prioritize online instruction through distant learning channels to align ourselves to comply with safety precautions recommended by the CDC. While our distant learning platforms are in a development stage of progress, Senior Lift is also preparing to redesign physical classroom space to incorporate Social distance guideline and precautions, when that time is appropriate. Learning technologies will be presented in a two-fold paradigm: Distant learning and the utilization of our physical classroom utilizing state of the art technology tools and the redesigning of working methods and student space that reflects a social distance learning environment.
