NITA M. LOWEY 21ST CCLC GRANT PROGRAM 2021 SUMMER SYMPOSIUM

Learning Recovery: Best Practices and New Models

Afterschool educators have pivoted services to “learning at a distance.” Now is the time to document what’s working. Session participants will learn a method for documenting Best Practices and New Service Models fit to local needs using the Guidance for Out-of-school Time Learning at the Distance (GOLD). Participants will learn about a quality assessment tool designed to identify best practices and new models for service – with a focus on the socio-emotional supports and access to academic content afterschool programs can provide for new individual learning environments outside of the tradition classroom. Participants will be supported to think about their own best practices for supporting the new individual learning environment and how to describe the new service to others.
