The global outbreak of Covid-19 and the subsequent partial school closures significantly disrupted education in England and across the world. The national lockdown periods created an unprecedented need for remote teaching and learning solutions.
This research forms part of larger DfE-commissioned programme of evidence-based research into education technology. This qualitative study, which involved interviews with teachers and senior leaders in 16 case-study schools and colleges focused on remote teaching. For the purposes of this study, remote teaching is defined as ‘a teacher teaching a live lesson from a different location to some or all of the pupils; for example, a teacher at home and children in class, or a class split between multiple locations’.
