Covid-19: Continuity of teaching and learning – an evidence-based approach

Teacher Magazine

As the COVID-19 situation unfolds, schools are closing to protect their students and the broader public – but this doesn’t mean a stop to learning for students or teachers. If the current crisis (and the bushfire crisis earlier in the year) teaches us anything, it is that there is a need across all educational sectors to plan for sustainable, quality, flexible learning options.

School Leaders’ Online Toolkit


This toolkit provides school leaders with resources for creating a pandemic response plan, locating accurate and up-to-date information about the virus, communicating with staff and stakeholders, partnering with local organizations, and preparing your school to teach and learn online.

What Works in Online/Distance Teaching and Learning?


With the emergence of COVID-19 and the move to social-distancing and remote learning, there are many questions about how schooling will work during the pandemic and what is the best approach to support learners, teachers and families.This Sportligh report includes evidence-based advice on setting expectations around teacher availability as well as creating a supportive, online community for collaborative learning.The report also highlights the critical role of parents and carers, in setting up a home environment that is conducive to learning.

Working with parents to provide practical strategies for home-supported learning

Teacher Magazine

In this home-supported learning environment parents are being called upon to play a broader role in their children’s education. The role of the parent is not to replace the teacher in learning from home, rather it may be thought of as working as an Integration Aide or Teaching Assistant to support the learning coming from the school. Evidence about the best ways for parents to support and guide their children’s learning at home can provide guidance to help improve home-supported learning.

Covid-19 home-supported learning: Guidance for educators

Evidence for Learning

To assist schools as they rapidly respond to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have curated the recommendations from our Guidance Reports which will support educators to prepare and deliver their model of home-supported learning. Where Australian guidance is not yet developed, the Education Endowment Foundation’s (EEF) Guidance Report is referenced. Further resources to support these recommendations will be published in the coming weeks.
