Transcript for New purchases to get students ready for remote learning
Welcome back to "Gma" and the new items on back-to-school lists. It's very complicated this year for students and teachers in the age of coronavirus. Joining us now is Genevieve Shaw brown, "Gma" digital family editor and author of "The happiest mommy you know." Genevieve, great to see you. I want to jump right to it here. The number of students going back to school, a lot are doing hybrid or blended learning, at home and in-person instruction. What kinds of items will students and teachers need? There will be extra distractions this year with a lot of schools mandating masks. It's hard to get students' attention without having half their face covered up. Clear masks might be a good idea. Students can see the teacher's face. Of course you've got to have hand sanitizer, have your child pick a color or smell that appeals to them. For the teachers, a wireless mic, it will help amplify their voice for the kids who are learning from home. It's interesting to think about the connection when a child can see a teacher's face. What do the kids need remotely? They should definitely have a good pair of headphones. They need to be able to drown out noise when they're working from communal paces in the home on days when they're not in the classroom. All right, Genevieve Shaw brown, thank you so much.
