Parents and teachers across the globe have been dealing with school closures and a disturbance in their kids’ education due to COVID-19. According to the study of Northwest Evaluation Association (NWEA), a Portland-based education organization, there is a 30% learning loss in reading and a 50% loss in math due to what is termed “the COVID slide”.
Every year, parents and educators are aware that the break from school entails some learning loss, commonly referred to as “summer slide”. However, this year, the situation is made more challenging due to the shift to online learning brought about by the pandemic. Students faced various forms of challenges to an online setting, Furthermore, the primary struggles students faced in coping with online learning in school was brought about by the following:
- Adjusting to a synchronous and asynchronous learning environment.
- Thriving in an online group setting.
- Less time spent per subject in school especially in Math and English.
