About a week ago we asked students, teachers and parents about their teaching and learning experiences during the last three months. So far over 100 students, over 50 teachers, and almost 200 parents have provided feedback.
So far, students and parents identify the greatest challenges as motivation, engagement and communications. Comments made by parents reveal a wide range of experiences – some appreciating the flexibility and guidance offered through remote learning — and others placing greater value on the in-class and social aspects of school.
Teachers remarked on being able to provide more focused one-on-one support for some students, opportunities to collaborate with colleagues on remote teaching, and the opportunity to extend the use of technology that students were already familiar with. Teachers also noted the critical role that parents played in supporting students in the primary grades and the increased demands placed on teachers implementing remote teaching and keeping in touch with every student.
The survey gives us an opportunity to celebrate our successes with remote teaching and learning over the last 3 months. Our experiences also inform us about practices to avoid and identify systems and skills we want to enhance when of if opportunities for remote learning are once again presented.
A more complete report will be produced once the survey has closed.
The survey closes on June 30th.
