What is a learning pod?
A learning pod is a small group of students — typically three to 10 children — who join a group to learn outside of a traditional classroom. Pods are gaining popularity due to the ongoing Covid-19 outbreak, and parents are choosing pods for their children to foster socialization and group learning.
Providers can partner with learning pods to offer programming, enrichment, and more.
What types of activities are best for learning pods?
Any activity is great for a learning pod! The goal of pods is to help children learn and grow together with instruction from education providers.
Do learning pods have to be in-person?
Nope! Learning pods are flexible and can be virtual or in-person.
How can I find learning pods in my community?
Great question! If you want to market your activities to parents in your area, you can tag your activities as "supports learning pods" in Sawyer Tools. This will populate them on our Pod Learning marketplace page for greater visibility.
Many providers also join pandemic pod, homeschooling, and local parenting groups on Facebook.
Do you have resources on how providers can support pod learning?
