DOVER, N.J., July 8, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Every summer brings its challenges and after many months of learning loss due to the pandemic, «summer brain drain» is added to the mix. Studies show COVID-19 impacted every aspect of society including education. Due to the switch to distance learning, it was estimated that if in-classroom instruction was to resume by fall 2021, students will have lost about 12.4 months of learning.1 As we kick off the summer, Casio highlights the importance of ensuring students keep their math skills alive throughout the summer and supports its «Casio Cares» mission by offering free and interactive webinar series and user-friendly resources to tackle summer brain drain.
