Fun Learning and the Pandemic

 There are currents and counter currents. Overall, students did worse as measured by standardized tests. Especially in math.

But, many students learned faster and better and flourished in remote learning. Many kids switched to homeschooling and seemed happier. At the pandemic outset, 4% of the US K12 population was being homeschooled. Most recent Census homeschooling data says that over 10% is being homeschooled.

The games on Time4MathFacts are very engaging. They also push the kids to react faster which works for most but not all kids. The time pressure isn't right for all children. Just saying....
