The purpose of this study was to investigate current tele-education systems in elementary schools and provide them with a method to improve existing systems, keeping children paying attention and learning material the same as in traditional classroom settings. This rapid transition to tele-education left many educators with numerous questions and few resources on how to effectively transition over to tele-education. Thus, I completed a typological content analysis based on numerous YouTube videos on tele-education, pulling out five recurring themes of what educators should include in virtual learning: a) organization, b) routine, c) social skills, d) engagement, and e) support. In addition to these themes, I include a podcast for educators synthesizing my findings. My study adds to the limited scholarship on tele-education of elementary aged students.
