In preparing for future remote learning it is important to draw from the evidence and our experiences so far.
Below you will find various guides and strategies in order to plan most effectively for remote teaching to maximise engagement and learning.
1) The EEF published guidance in relation to effective remote learning. The full report can be found here Remote_Learning_Rapid_Evidence_Assessment, but in addition we have summarised the evidence with suggested strategies.Remote learning_Handout_1
2) The EEF have also published guidance in relation to how to approach the planning of remote learning in order to aid metacognition. Here is a summary of the 5 stages they suggest you follow to maximise learning.EEF planning framework
3) Teaching quality is more important than how material is delivered. In particular clear explanations that build on prior learning, scaffolding and modelling are key. Here are some examplesScaffolding_modelling examples
4) Low stakes assessment methods helps pupils retain knowledge. Technology can support retrieval practice and self quizzing can be used to review prior and current learning. Here are some examples of tools to useLow stakes assessment
5) Peer interactions increase motivation and therefore outcomes. This can be quite challenging online however strategies such as peer marking, feedback, sharing models of good work, and opportunities for live discussion can help.Peer interaction
6) Support pupils to work independently. Share strategies that can help when they are stuck such as daily plans or checklists, also create opportunities for them to reflect on their learning. Independent working
