Learning trajectories show that far too few children master core foundational skills such as literacy and numeracy during their time in school. Analysis further shows that children tend to fall behind early in their schooling, and often do not catch up later – while they may remain in school, many are not learning.
The COVID-19 crisis has exacerbated this pre-existing learning crisis by setting back a generation of children in terms of their learning progressions. The good news is that there is significant evidence on approaches that can improve children’s learning. Often, curriculum, assessments, and instruction need to be better aligned with each other and with children’s learning levels. Quality teaching requires quality support for teachers. However, there are no “silver bullet solutions”, and any effective approach must be adapted to the opportunities and constraints of a given context. This talk will discuss learning trajectories, COVID-related learning losses, and approaches for improving alignment for learning.
Hosted in collaboration with the Syed Ahsan Ali and Syed Maratib Ali School of Education (SOE), the session will be moderated by Dr. Rabea Malik and Dr. Tayyaba Tamim.
