The Ivy Street School is honored to partner with Boston University Wheelock College of Education and Human Development. Moderated by Brandon Cardet-Hernandez, Executive Director of the Ivy Street School, the first in a series of conversations will address questions from various stakeholders in education and YOU.
As we move into the second year of this global pandemic, how do we address the significant academic, social, and emotional toll COVID-19 has taken on school-age children? While some have said we might be seeing a “lost generation”, others are heralding the narrowing of the digital divide. With millions of students across the U.S learning remotely, unprecedented numbers not attending school, and municipalities canceling assessments—we are experiencing a crisis of learning loss.
What are the consequences of such learning loss?
Where do we go from here?
How do we prioritize and address a multitude of issues?
What steps should be taken in the short-term in order to support students?
And how do we innovate for the future, to build on the lessons being learned?
