Vidya Shah, Assistant Professor at York University’s Faculty of Education shares tips on how parents can encourage learning with their kids during COVID-19.
Shah stresses the importance of acknowledging the difference between schooling and learning. “It’s important for parents to know that [learning] is happening all the time. When they are talking with their children, when they’re watching a TV show together and having a discussion about it,” says Shah. “Learning can happen in all of those spaces and that is not going to stop because of COVID-19, and it should be where our focus is right now.”
