About the event
The education crisis across this country has become even more prominent due to the effects of COVID-19. The abrupt shift to distanced learnings and the constant labor of caregiving left many students, educators, and families exhausted. As more and more students express their loss of interest in the very idea of “learning”, how has the concept of learning shifted during the course of this pandemic? How did educators rise up to care for the students in this time of crisis? And how will our experience redefine our learning and teaching practices moving forward?
In response to the crisis, 78 organizations across Philadelphia, including Asian Arts Initiative, participated in the Access Center program organized by the City’s Office of Children and Families. Each Access Center provided a safe space and learning support to K-6 students and their families where the students were invited to bring their school laptops to attend their virtual classes.
