@apsmunro @kerrysmith654 Teachers in Aus stayed in minimum weekly contact with all families during lockdown. Phone and if available, video calling. Anything similar in UK?
@apsmunro @kerrysmith654 Specifically, they contacted parents *and* kids...
@apsmunro @kerrysmith654 They did virtual schooling, initially with just work sent in email, easy things children could do by themselves, followed by video lessons either once a day or all day, depending on stage of schooling. On top of that teacher phoned and asked how we were going. It helped.
@apsmunro @kerrysmith654 Children that didn’t have internet, essential workers kids and vulnerable children, stayed at school... interestingly, as there were so few kids at school (5%), even when we got a covid case in school, social distancing was automatically place. Very little transmission onward.
@apsmunro @kerrysmith654 It’s quite amazing really what our teachers achieved. Converted class work to online format, stuck to the curriculum without making it too hard, and did a massive amount of welfare checking and emotional support. Kept us connected to the school community.
@apsmunro @kerrysmith654 All while teaching a group in school also. I’m exhausted just thinking about it. But they did it... I am sure they would have noticed if my son was miserable, or I was crazier than usual.
@apsmunro @kerrysmith654 It wasn’t perfect, nor was it a replacement for school, but it was a really good safety net... in a bad time.
