These are challenging times for educators, parents and students alike, with a rapidly changing education landscape to navigate in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Many schools are moving to support young people in alternative ways including through online environments to ensure the continuity of their education. Not every family has the same resources and access to technology to support learning at home. For those experiencing vulnerability, we must ensure the digital divide and lack of other resources does not turn the current achievement gap into a chasm over the coming months. Evidence of what works in education can help leaders and teachers in this difficult time of transition to improve home-supported learning.
What you’ll learn:
- What are the challenges and opportunities for education during and post COVID-19?
- Building students ability to direct their own learning through metacognition and self-regulation.
- Technology at home.
- The role parents can play in supporting the education of their children.
Presented by Dr Tanya Vaughan and Susannah Schoeffel.
