On June 22, 2022, Nate Casey, Chief Strategy Officer of Pearl hosted a webinar with two brilliant minds from ServeMinnesota: Peter Nelson Ph.D., VP of Impact and Innovation, and David Parker Ph.D., VP of Research and Development. The discussion dives deep into how high-impact tutoring is contributing to closing the gap between education research and practice. The webinar also addresses how tutoring has become increasingly part of the K12 experience.
Key insights covered in this webinar:
- How the Math Corps program plays a key role in getting high-quality math instruction delivered straight to students
- How AmeriCorps-based tutoring programs serve as a model for intelligent data-based decision making
- How the Reading Corps program is leading educational research on how to help students maintain reading skills
- How tutoring could become a core right in K12 education
- The opportunities to bridge the research-practice gap in education in the United States
A slightly different format from our previous Pearls of Wisdom webinar series, this discussion takes a learning approach and is made available to a broader audience.
