    • Elizabeth, I think this is a very interesting and important topic, and liked the variety of issues you presented within the bigger issue, which is really that Covid has made learning very difficult for many kids over the past year. I think this issue has a strong tie to the fact that this past year has largely been characterized by the constant need for self-motivated action, and how isolation and working remotely oppose it. An article from The New York Times, “What We’re Learning About Online Learning,” discusses many problems similar to those in your analysis, and also offers a variety of solutions. One solution in particular that I think relates to the issue you described of kids not showing up online or engaging, is the process of mobilizing facilitators, coaches, and other staff members to support those in this situation. Though this may not be a possibility for every school, I think the simple act of support, in any form, is a possibility.
      As students continue learning online all around the world, I look forward to reading more of your insight into the issue and possible solutions.

    • I 100% agree with you. This year should be looked at with an asterisk next to it. It is something special in a seriously horrible way.

  • At the beginning I believed that we could all social distance, and wear masks if we needed to go anywhere, if it meant we could all be back to pretty much normal in a couple weeks. Unfortunately, I was wrong. Who could have guessed social distancing would be so hard. It hasn’t gotten any easier, despite it being nine months since it all started.…Read More

  • Elizabeth commented on the post, Titanic II

    I think if I wasn’t so afraid of the ocean, I would 100% ride on the Titanic II. I recently watched the Titanic movie for the first time and before that I knew the story but after watching it, it seems so much more real. I hope the people who build the second one are smarter than the ones who built the first and prepare for it to sink because even…Read More
