It’s vital that we all learn the lessons from lockdown, so it was a great pleasure to share reflections on this theme with Professor Deborah Eyre, founder and CEO at High Performance Learning. The video from the session is below.
In the session we referenced a number of things, and I’ve added links to some of these below, if I’ve missed any do let us know:
- Our study revealing parents’ increased respect for teachers
- The recent ONS Study: Remote schooling through the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, England April 2020 to June 2021 showing that for KS1 children around 60% of learning was dependent upon parents in the first 9 months of the pandemic, and that even now this remains at 40% – parents are critical co-scaffolders of learning.
- A recent webinar Making Parental Engagement World Class with British School of Muscat on blended learning and parental engagement
A big thank you to everyone for joining in with our Lessons from Lockdown chat – keep an eye out for the next webinar coming soon.
One final thought to leave you with:
“What parents do with their children at home is much more significant than any other factor open to educational influence”
(Desforges and Abouchaar, 2003).
