The Computer Science Teachers Association has compiled a comprehensive list of resources for teaching computer science remotely.

These next two resources are informational and designed to support students' and teachers' ability to learn and teach coding:

NOTE: Educators using digital learning tools have the responsibility to ensure that students and their personally identifiable information are protected in ways consistent with federal, state, district, and school policies. Educators are encouraged to talk with their school administrators and technology directors before asking students to use new tools (even the ones on our lists below).

The Maine Department of Education highlights the Maine Student Privacy Alliance (MESPA) as a resource that helps districts use digital learning tools safely. The Maine Education Technology Directors Association (METDA) helps districts navigate onboarding and participation with the MESPA. The resulting database contains the agreements various Maine districts have made with educational technology providers to ensure compliance with both Maine and Federal laws.

Additionally, iKeepSafe has curated a number of resources to help educators learn about protecting students in a digital world and facilitates a certification process that identifies companies as FERPA and/or COPPA compliant (link to tested and approved products).
