For over nearly a year, Nisai Group have been highlighting the future effect of CoVid19 relating to learning loss and knowledge regression. Research shows that when children do not access school, they not only stop learning but actually lose the knowledge they once had. Even with the introduction of distance learning during the pandemic, learners unless accepting and engaging in this form of delivery, will still not have that same experience they would have had in school, especially if they have additional needs. It has been said that 6 months out of the classroom with no education can result in a loss of knowledge of up to 12-18 months.
The challenge comes from slowing this regression down and identifying innovations and strategies that can not only make up for the time the children have missed from school learning new information, but supporting them in catching up the additional knowledge they once knew and have now lost. We need to address this problem now and over the coming years to ensure this generation of children have the same opportunities and life choices as everyone else.
