Welcome to the NSPDK e-Learning Academy! The educators of National Sorority of Phi Delta Kappa, Inc. are pleased to present this website of resources to our colleagues, families and friends. The COVID-19 Pandemic has changed the way we teach and how our children learn. As educators, we are aware that the paradigm shift in teaching in front of children is changed forever.
The committee members saw a need to help their colleagues and the populations they serve. Our “new normal” dictates that educators need a bank of e-resources to help them do their best during this era of remote teaching/learning.
The educators of the National Sorority of Phi Delta Kappa, Inc. are eager to share their knowledge and expertise with teachers. We have complied a list of platforms and programs to assist teachers in this age of remote learning.
As the nation continues to use remote learning, we encourage teachers to visit our site often and take advantage of the resources that have been compiled for teachers. We are sure that teachers will be pleased with the variety of grade and age appropriate programs listed.
Salute to our new normal, remote learning using the NSPDK e-LEARNING ACADEMY!

It is with great excitement that I introduce teachers to the NSPDK e-Learning Academy Resource. Each time we open our mail, be it snail or e-mail, we are bombarded with new platform and tool notifications. They invite us to try different strategies to better meet the needs of our students. How nice it would be to have resources housed in one place, so we can visit, explore, and make decisions about educating our students, with distant education, in a timely manner.
NSPDK e-Learning Academy will serve as a resource to help us navigate the waters that are new to some of us and make the navigation easier for accomplished users. We are being asked to rethink our methods and use new strategies that engage our students, as they participate in distance education and e-Learning settings. We must not fail; this resource will be a great benefit in the task that is before us.
I encourage teachers to interact with the document as teachers will surely find tools to help teachers as teachers plan and implement lessons. We know not what our educational systems will look like as we move forward to the next few months, but we do know our job duties have shifted to a new and exciting norm. In many cases it will involve teaching learners from a distance. The NSPDK e-Learning Academy will serve teachers well, as teachersr tasks become inclusive of so many new methods and platforms. As facilitators of distance education, we will surely continue to prepare our students for the world they must manipulate, even as they become efficient with the new resources.
I am a kindergarten teacher from Gary, Indiana. I am a member of the Beta Mu Chapter, where Onitta Parker is my Basileus. In Beta Mu chapter I currently serve as chapter Tamiouchos and work on several committees and projects. Although teaching and learning during the next school year is uncertain for all educators at this time, I am assured that it will include e-Learning. For this reason, the launching of the NSPDK e-Learning Academy makes me extremely happy because this resource will be available to guide teachers, parents, and students.
