With many children learning remotely this fall, Sal Khan, founder of Khan Academy, a leader in online learning, knows that it’s a daunting task for teachers — and parents — to deliver a high-quality experience.
Since starting the academy in 2005, Khan has gained unique insight into how to best use online learning to reach children. On this Harvard EdCast, Khan shares some of the most effective teaching strategies for remote learning, and especially how parents can help support online learning at home.
“No one’s going to be writing about the COVID gain, that kids have learned 20% more this year magically. The catastrophe that we need to avoid is a large chunk of kids just falling off of their path,” Khan says. “A lot of it is just going to be a mental health issue, making sure they’re engaged. I think if kids are engaged in mental health and they’re having regular touchpoints with amazing teachers, things are going to be fine. The crisis is going to stay a crisis. It won’t become a catastrophe…………………………………………………………………………..
