Defining Learning Loss and its Contributing Factors - Episode 20

The need to close the “digital divide,” a term that refers to disparities in device and broadband access, wasn’t new when the COVID-19 pandemic began. However, over the last year, the “COVID Slide” has entered the K-12 vernacular along with “learning loss,” one of the current buzz phrases in education. This refers to a perceived or actual lack of academic growth and/or lost learning time as schools have shifted to remote and hybrid models, often without the type of planning required to deliver an excellent digital education.

In this episode, Dr. Oliver explores the contributing factors that lead to “learning loss” and describes some of the things to look out for over the coming weeks and months, as educators implement strategies to begin new, positive trends in student achievement.
