For educators managing learning due to school closure, this page aims to aggregate and share resources, experiences and guidance on how to manage remote learning and working.
Considerations for remote learning:
(1) Not every student has internet access. Consider how you will support these learners and prioritise support for them.
(2) Putting things online and changing nothing, doesn't enhance learning. Adapt the resource to the platform.
(3) Learning is not just about content.
You can access guidance on designing online activities and resources in the useful links on this page.

"Remote learning leaves teachers less connected to students and students less connected to teachers. Ideally, then, the way we approach online learning would address that challenge by not only making our students feel more connected but by making them feel connected to us specifically by the work we do together. That is, we would send the message that when you engage in the work of learning it connects us- because I notice it and value it and just maybe find happiness in it too."
Jen Rugani gave the name “Dissolving the Screen” to this idea, and last week posted a great video of Achievement First’s Ben Esser doing that.
