As we get closer to the fall semester for elementary schools, high schools, and universities, there’s still debate as to how kids will be educated in the midst of a pandemic.
In a recent poll, parents were asked whether it would be safe to reopen the schools. Sixty-nine percent of those polled said it wasn’t safe yet–as far as elementary and high schools go.
Because of this, many schools in varying alert tiers are choosing between five days a week in school, full-time online learning, or a mix of both in-person and remote learning.
If remote learning isn’t taken seriously or done properly, the consequences could be huge. A recent study from the Northwest Evaluation Association (NWEA) Collaborative for Student Growth Research Center
estimated that when students return for the 2020-21 school year, they’ll enter classes with about 70% of the learning gains in reading compared to a normal year of classes. The “COVID-19 slide” is predicted
to affect mathematics comprehension even more, with an estimated 50% of retention of what was taught when compared to a typical school year. The bottom line is: going forward, remote learning is going to be
increasingly important; and digital resources along with their respective devices will be ever-essential. You can learn more about this subject on our
our recent blog post.
