Virtual Learning Trends During the COVID-19 Pandemic
From the report: "In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, school districts across the United States were forced to close their physical schools and rapidly switch to
virtual learning. In this report, we study a district in the metro Atlanta area (“the district”) that began to deliver all content virtually in mid-March 2020, which included teachers delivering lectures and giving assignments online. Subsequently, as the fall 2020 semester progressed, the district offered various hybrid and face-to-face learning options. This report examines trends in technology usage and learning during fall 2020 to elucidate promising strategies\ and highlight areas for additional attention, which can help improve the effectiveness of virtual learning."
