While some students thrived, many others flailed in the digital learning environment
One of my teaching colleagues returned to school recently to discover a student who hadn’t submitted any work this term due to not logging in and engaging with the lessons. It’s students like this who have suffered during remote teaching. In one week in the classroom, this student has since completed seven weeks of missing work because of his teacher’s daily support and encouragement. He is once again on track to pass the semester.
In staff rooms my colleagues and I discuss the future of teaching and whether, as the coronavirus lockdowns ease, there will be more of a push to teach remotely. This is not just a fear for teachers concerned for their long-term prospects, but something that is being discussed as a potentially positive move.
