Strategies for Home Learning during a Primary School Closure

This is a summary of ideas currently being shared across advisory networks and social media education channels including schools in the US, Asia and UK.

Home Access and Key Safeguarding Considerations inc #Digital5aDay
There is currently strong emphasis on remote, online learning (multiple Edtech platforms offered for free here) which needs careful consideration:
a/  Many homes have limited wifi/devices beyond mobile which children traditionally “watch”, plus parents working from home may also need the family laptop
b/ Need for offline/online balance for every child staying at home all day
c/ Safeguarding and Health Well-being
– Parents ask for support with screen-time boundaries
– Social media issues(e.g.WhatsApp/TikTok) may spike across class/friendship groups
