Govt data on remote learning

The NSW Centre for Education Statistics and Evaluation (CESE) has compiled a series of ‘Learning from home’ snapshots with examples of how schools ensured continuity of learning during the pandemic.

An evidence-based explainer summarises the research in relation to effective remote learning and highlights key considerations for learning in the face of COVID-19. It focuses on teaching quality, supporting teachers to implement high-quality teaching practices, ensuring students can access learning, encouraging effective engagement with parents and carers, and considerations for the return to face-to-face teaching.

The research reflects this year’s Education Week theme of ‘Learning together’ with examples of strong partnerships between teachers, parents and carers all having a shared responsibility for student learning.

Teachers and school communities have collaborated to embrace the rapid changes and ensure positive learning environments for our students.

Common themes emerging across the snapshot schools include the strategic and flexible use of resources, effective and regular communication, understanding local context and responding effectively and drawing on collective expertise to build capacity and manage teacher workloads.

The explainer document is available here, with individual snapshot documents available here.
