Are You Ready for Coronavirus?

February 27, 2020 | Ben Grimley |

Originally, this March 2020 newsletter issue was going to be about us. But in light of recent events, it's going to be about you.

Are You Prepared?

Today, Japan, a nation of 126 million people, shut down its K12 school system nationwide for an entire month. While we are not there yet, we should think about what to do in the event of school closure. What are your contingency plans? How will students have access to learning?

Whether it's a desktop, a laptop, an iPad, or an Android tablet, Speak Agent works  at home! Students just sign in with the same login they use at school. All of their lessons and progress will be there.

healthyCOVID-19 Safety Lessons:

Speak Agent is developing a short series of digital health education lessons. These expert-reviewed lessons will educate students and families about how to stay safe during a Coronavirus outbreak. If you'd like us to deploy these to your implementation, please contact us!

Yes, we can!Speak Agent Can Do More.

While Speak Agent is mostly used in ELA, Math and Science, it can support your unique content needs. We are on call to rapidly enable you to deliver remote, home-based instruction in any content area. 

partnerRemote Collaboration:

We're working on tools for students to work together online. We will first roll this out in Math 3-8. Students will be able to create math puzzles for classmates to solve. This will come with teacher moderation tools. We will keep your students learning effectively, both in the classroom and remotely!

Next Steps

Don't wait until school closures become a reality in your district:

  1. Come up with a plan.
  2. Let us know how we can best support you.
