Google animated video Doodle marks US Teacher Appreciation Week 2021 Begins! On May 3, Google honors teachers the country over by inviting us all to listen to five real stories of their experiences and the lasting effect they have on their students every day with interactive, animated Doodle. Teacher Appreciation Week 2021 in the United States started on Monday, 3 May and ends on Friday, 7 May. National Teacher Day falls on May 4.
To celebrate the start of Teacher Appreciation Week 2021, Google has cooperated with StoryCorps to feature five novel and lovely stories from across the US that features some of the roles that a teacher has in a child’s life. These stories date from the integration period right to online learning during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
Made in partnership with StoryCorps and US-based guest animators Lindsey Deschamps, Monique Wray, and Vrinda Zaveri, the present Doodle features stories across a spectrum of backgrounds and periods—including the COVID-19 pandemic which has carried extraordinary difficulties to the lives of teachers and students all over the place.
As you listen to these touching stories, we urge you to think about when an educator transformed yourself to improve things. Do they know the effect they had on your life? Visit StoryCorps to #ThankAnEducator by using self-directed recording tools to interview a special teacher in your life—or to have a discussion thinking about their contact with a companion or individual student. These snapshots of appreciation will be archived in the Library of Congress.
Notwithstanding the present Google Doodle, which incorporates five teacher stories from the StoryCorps archives, Google and the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO) are collaborating to help StoryCorps’ new Thank an Educator campaign. Anybody can utilize StoryCorps’ self-directed recording tools to record their stories, so you can get a companion or relative and begin reflecting upon how your favorite teacher completely changed your life.
In 1985, the National Parent Teacher Association proclaimed that the first full week of May in every year would be Teacher Appreciation Week in the US. From that point, the association further concluded that the Tuesday of Teacher Appreciation Week is National Teacher Day, putting the current year’s celebration on May 4th, 2021.
Amidst one of the most challenging school years to date, the campaign desires to start a snapshot of appreciation for teachers all over the place. Make sure to look at their website to hear recordings and those from other 2021 State Teachers of the Year.
Google’s celebration of Teacher Appreciation Week 2021 in the US has just barely started. Over on Google’s Keyword blog, 2020’s “National Teacher of the Year” has shared some of the organization’s most recent efforts to teachers, including endeavors to give more comprehensive books to schools in need and donation coordinating with campaigns for projects began by educators of color.
