Rutgers surveyed students on remote learning

After surveying students around the country on how they were handling the new remote-learning environment, researchers at Rutgers University developed a new resource to help educators redesign their instruction to be more equitable, community-focused and student-centered. They surveyed more than 3,000 undergraduate students from 31 universities and found the majority “craved the human connections that was lost when they had to leave school because of the pandemic.” The new resources, called "Left to Their Own Devices," include short posts hoped to aid teachers as they navigate the new learning environment.   Jake Williams has more.
