Knowledge, Learning, Community

There's a lot to like in this report (126 page PDF). "As communities continue to suffer from surging outbreaks of COVID-19," the authors write, "districts are considering a range of differing approaches to online, hybrid, and in-person instruction... (this report) focuses on how policymakers as well as educators can support equitable, effective teaching and learning regardless of the medium through which that takes place." The recommendations range from closing the digital divide, strengthening distance and blended learning (though it should be 'online and hybrid learning', in my view), needs assessment, social, emoptional and culturally responsive learning, and wrap-around supports for after-hours and community-based learning.
