Harlem Roots is the e-learning student educational branch of Welcome to Harlem, a walking tour company established in the heart of Harlem itself. Harlem Roots has been designed and set up to offer virtual learning opportunities for students and to help enhance educational opportunities through a virtual and distance learning format. While doing walking tours with students, Welcome to Harlem realized that a large amount of the material being covered in the tour was not being taught to the students in their normal classroom settings. So, the team took it upon themselves to remedy this injustice and fill the void with the creation of a specialized online learning program now known as Harlem Roots.
Here at Harlem Roots, we believe in meeting students where they are and providing them with online lessons and a virtual learning platform that meets their needs in the here and now. The world has changed in ways we never could have prepared for and it may be a long while before things get back to normal. Students are having to learn how to take classes online, learn with digital classes, and are being forced to adapt to a whole new aspect of virtual learning. We wanted to help make the process easier for students, parents, and teachers alike. To this end, we have introduced our fully online virtual learning collection of reading lessons, videos, and concerts.
Students will learn about Harlem from the comfort of their own homes thanks to the innovation of e-learning and the power of modern digital technology. This is all be achieved through a series of virtual lesson activities and engaging online lessons that focus on the people, places, and events that make Harlem famous. Exploring the roots of Harlem and helping to educated others has always been and always will be our driving passion. It is from this passion that our e-learning series was born. With the need for easy to use and access learning material being more vital now than ever, we knew now was the time to bring Harlem Roots to the forefront and to move to an all-digital online learning platform.
