ArkansasIDEAS is bringing you new resources to keep students learning from home during the COVID-19 crisis.
Gov. Asa Hutchinson has officially closed schools in Arkansas until April 17. For parents and teachers, this requires a lot of adjusting! First and foremost, we want everyone to breathe. These are trying times for everyone but, with some collaboration and a lot of creativity, we will get through it together!
Our educators at ArkansasIDEAS have compiled a resource page to aid teachers and parents in their kids’ at-home learning. Whether you’re a teacher or a parent (or both!), we can help! So, how does this work?

Men & Women of DistinctionThese courses are based on the Arkansas PBS series Men and Women of Distinction. Each episode features an Arkansan whose life has had a profound effect on the development of the state, the character of its people, or its image beyond our borders. By highlighting these men and women, the series allows history to be told by the voices of those who lived it.

From knowing normal to constructing the timeline of a security incident, the Forensics module ties together all of the best practices from previous modules in the series.
