As the weather begins to heat up this summer, so does the pressure to address learning loss. Make this year’s summer program something your students look forward to by integrating fun and engaging coding into the classroom.
A recent EdSurge article explores the need for summer learning programs to include fun activities in an effort to increase engagement and allow schools to catch up for what was lost during the pandemic. In the article, Aaron Dworkin, CEO of the National Summer Learning Association says:
If we’re realistic, we’re not going to catch up to everything that kids didn’t get to this pandemic year in six to ten weeks. It’s important to use this summer to not only try and catch up where we can but also just to reacclimate students to being with their peers, to being with their teachers and…to get ready for the coming school year.
BSD Education is here to help any educator of any subject address learning loss and teach real-world digital skills while creating a learning environment that’s enjoyable for students. This can be done using a variety of coding projects, including building a website or developing a personalized game, so don’t let summer pass by without providing students with 21st century skills they can use in future classes and careers.
