Abstract: In the spring of 2020, districts across America needed to quickly transition to distance learning in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Many educators turned to social media for help addressing this change. This study examined posts from a public Facebook group whose purpose was to support teachers during this pandemic to learn what help educators were seeking for emergency distance learning. Findings indicated that most sought resources or activities to support student learning, followed by how to conduct distance education, followed by requests for technical support.
