February 24th, 2021 @1:00 pm EDT Research Conversations: Learning Loss
The cumulative learning loss due to COVID-19 is substantial, with estimates ranging from 3-12 months. In addition, the impacts of unprecedented levels of stress, grief, fear, and uncertainty experienced by students and educators is creating increased concerns about how the social and emotional impacts of COVID-19 will manifest as barriers to learning. As district leaders, teachers, and counselors grapple with the best ways to effectively address the learning loss, it is essential they have key research insights to guide them.
Join Dr. Eve Miller as she shares her expertise in cognitive neuroscience to provide useful guidelines grounded in brain science for how we learn, cope, and thrive. She will also discuss likely pitfalls to avoid while addressing learning loss as well as practical strategies that educators need.
