In May, the New Jersey Department of Education (DOE) conducted roundtable discussions with students from around the state to discuss their experiences with remote learning during the coronavirus pandemic.
“Student voices will be critical as we move forward and work to provide the academic, social and emotional support necessary for students and staff to successfully address the challenges they faced throughout the pandemic,” Acting Education Commissioner Dr. Angelica Allen McMillian said. “These student roundtables provided us with much-needed insight as we prepare for the full reopening of schools.”
A video summary of the virtual student roundtable discussions is now available on the DOE’s website, according to a press release.
A total of 12 sessions were convened as a platform for students to share their experiences and offer their insights regarding the remote learning experience. Each roundtable consisted of between five and nine students, with a total of 85 students participating.
School counselors were available after the virtual student roundtable discussions for a debriefing session to ensure students’ emotional and behavioral needs were met, according to the press release.
The DOE asked high school administrators throughout the state to recommend students for the roundtables with diverse backgrounds who could provide a wide array of insights.
