You hear it everywhere lately, the “New Normal.” Coronavirus has forced us to live in a new way to prevent the spread of COVID-19. We are all quickly adapting to new protocols and adopting new technologies. Distance learning and remote working are now both widespread and common, collectively testing the bounds of technology so we can safely remain apart.  

Though post-coronavirus life will force us to incorporate several adaptations moving forward, various aspects of life will return. Students will eventually return to the classroom, and it is our collective responsibility to make them safecomfortable, and ready to learn after having their lives upended 

Proactive administrators and educators are using this time to reflect and begin implementing plans to evolve their school or classroom forward. With students away from the physical campus, perhaps through the Fall semester in some places, many administrators are evaluating and prioritizing projects and initiatives. Common efforts being considered include: 

  • Implementing new health and safety measures to maintain social distancing; 
  • Organizing staggered breaks, lunches and passing periods; 
  • Installing a classroom technology hub or audio and device management system that enables teachers to have centralized device control on themselves or phone, which can help teacher maintain physical distancing; 
  • Upgrading to a classroom communication or sound system that supports that ensures sound clarity within the classroom and online for students learning remotely;  
  • Upgrading antiquated bells, paging, and intercom system to a dynamic IP-based system that can easily support multiple bell schedules as well as staggered breaks, lunches and passing periods
