For teachers and students, remote learning during COVID-19 poses challenges, stokes creativity

Union teachers were featured in a Nightline segment/ABC story about remote learning Tuesday night.

For elementary school teachers, personal interaction is key for students to learn effectively and feel comfortable in the classroom.

"You miss being in the classroom being able to look at all of them, being able to walk over to them, being able to say, 'Hey, are you OK?' or being able to give them a pat on the back," Kristen Robinson, a fourth grade math teacher at Darnaby Elementary School in Tulsa, Oklahoma, told "Nightline."

Beth Grounds, a second grade math and science at Marshall T. Moore Elementary School in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, has taken the challenges of remote learning in stride, helping her students who don't have access to internet or devices and trying to maintain a sense of structure through events like "crazy hat day."

"I had several families that did not have access to print capabilities, and a few families that did not have devices or internet access at home," Grounds said.
