As schools shift to online learning this fall, the hope is that a mix of digital and physical school (also known as blended learning) will help open schools safely. This coming school year will be more of a test of best practices as young people who are already digital natives find their teachers more attune to using online tools.
In addition to school, young people get a sense of normalcy with athletics and recreation. Not only have whole seasons of sports been wiped away, but sports camps have lost millions due to lack of participation and engagement. There’s a great fear in the youth sports industry that the ongoing lack of exercise and socialization will push young people farther into obesity and mental health issues.
