How Do We Make Remote Learning Better?

Sep 16, 2020

The school year is in full swing for teachers, students, and families across the state, and the pandemic has brought with it a host of new challenges for everyone involved in education. Teaching students over the internet isn’t easy, and factors like technology, subject matter, and the student’s age make things even more complicated. Last week the state awarded Indiana University nearly $3 million to fund projects that could help.

Today we find out how that money's going to be used with three people leading the effort. We also talk about how remote learning is being done in schools across Indiana, how researchers say it should be done, and what impact the pandemic has had on the learning process.
