The new report into Edtech used during lockdown found that the resources and features found in the eduu.school platform made up most of ‘what works’ for remote learning best practice.
The All Party Parliamentary Group on Education Technology released their report “Lessons from Lockdown: What we learned about Education Technology in 2020” this week, summarising evidence of ‘what worked’ when schools had to quickly roll out remote learning during the 2020 lockdown.
The report highlights features of remote learning approaches that resulted in increased learner engagement or offered vital support for wellbeing – and noted 6 of these were found in the eduu.school platform! Here’s a short summary of how we are leading emerging best practice:
This early evidence suggests that eduu.school can offer very positive outcomes for pupils, teachers and families, and we look forward to seeing more of this as it rolls out in this new hybrid learning world!
On the latter, the APPG Report determined remote learning approaches that best supported students’ wellbeing had four design elements:
1. Teacher presence
2. Platforms that sustained pupil relationships and enabled children to receive feedback from their peers, as well as their teachers, proved popular.
3. Incorporated activities that developed children’s self- regulation, self-esteem and self-influence
4. The value of interlinking services
These are the fundamentals around which eduu.school is built and around which our pedagogies and wellbeing support are founded.
