In a follow up to the last week’s release of distance learning activities for public use, Jostens is further extending access and launching a “Virtual Culture and Climate Series designed to keep school leaders and educators connected through solution-based dialogue focused on COVID19 impacts to schools and communities,” the company said.
Jostens’ prior release of its entire library of The Harbor, a video-based character education and social-emotional learning series, as well as its digital yearbook curriculum usually made available exclusively to customers, will now be available throughout the remainder of the school year to the public. The Harbor can be found at JostensRenaissance.com using the username and password “JOSTENS;” yearbook curriculum can be found at jostens.com/yearbookblog
In addition, Jostens will continue to provide resources and solutions to educators through its Virtual Culture and Climate Series beginning Monday, March 30 and continuing throughout the next several weeks.
The Virtual Culture and Climate Series will consist of bi-weekly live streaming sessions occurring every Monday and Friday at 12:00 noon EST via Jostens Renaissance Facebook and Twitter social media accounts. At the start of each week, Motivation Mondays will cover best practices for addressing the changing school needs as identified by educators throughout North America, and highlight a featured episode of The Harbor. Motivation Mondays are designed for audiences consisting of educators, parents, and students.
Later each week, Graduation Fridays will be reserved for dialogue specific to commencement and graduation in the midst of the COVID19 crisis. Graduation Fridays are designed for a school administration audience.
Recaps and resources for all Virtual Culture and Climate Series sessions will be shared on JostensRenaissance.com for continuous reference and access.
