Ready for the Challenge: Ideas and Evidence from Student-Centered Learning in a Pandemic

Ready for the Challenge: Ideas and Evidence from Student-Centered Learning in a Pandemic

Presenting a new, year-long blog series

The last year has been deeply challenging. As schools have shifted to distance learning, some have embraced that, now more than ever, student-centered learning approaches are needed—to enable students to learn at their own pace and place, according to plans personalized to their needs.

In this blog series, featuring new posts each month throughout 2021, we’ll hold up stories of these student-centered innovators. We hope their lessons learned will help other educators wanting to use this period of disruption to pivot their schools toward a more student-centered future.

In doing so, we’re also hitting a second purpose: to develop the argument and evidence base that student-centered approaches are critical not just in the grips of Covid-19—but to, finally, equitably serve all students as we pull ourselves beyond it.

Specifically, the series will tell the stories of five student-centered schools across the country, provide synthesis of common practices and evidence across sites, and interpret the data emerging across the broader education community during this period.

We are grateful to the Leon Lowenstein Foundation for their generous financial support for this series.
