Districts and learning institutions across the country are concerned about the impact the pandemic has had on learning. Will students have what they need to be successful moving into next year and beyond? Accelerated learning is one of the biggest buzzwords in education right now – but what does it really mean? And how do you do it? One only has to type in the word “accelerated” into a google search – and a volume of definitions, research based studies and different models pop up for “accelerated learning.” It can be overwhelming and seem like an academic rabbit hole. Accelerated Learning after COVID-19 is a new focus for educators.
Join JASON Learning, a 32 year-old non-profit, whose mission is to inspire and educate students everywhere through real STEM and exploration for a thoughtful reflection around this pressing topic. We hope that you gain insights and leave with concrete ideas for how you might approach it in your own educational community.
