The Power of Theory to Drive Action at Outschool.org Gives Homeschoolers New Tools for Success
The education landscape will never be the same since the global pandemic; perhaps that reality is fortunate. The shuttering of traditional classrooms forced parents and educators to explore alternative teaching and learning methods. One such way, homeschooling, has seen a significant surge, with a steady growth from 2% to 8% per year, rising exponentially during the pandemic. This shift has prompted a critical conversation on the power of theory in driving action in homeschooling.
How can theory be effectively applied to drive action in homeschooling, and how does this impact the quality of education students receive?
In this episode of The Future of Education, host Michael B. Horn engages in a thought-provoking discussion with Kris Comeforo, Director of Product & Programs at Outschool.org. The pair discuss the power of theory in driving action in homeschooling, the role of Outschool.org in this context, and the broader implications for the future of education.
Horn and Comeforo’s conversation include the following:
- The role of theory in driving action in homeschooling
- The impact of the pandemic on the rise of homeschooling
- How Outschool.org provides resources and support for homeschooling families
