Keep Daily Schedules for Home Learning

Teacher Insights

Home learning during pandemic becomes effective when schools provide daily schedules, feedback on schoolwork and provide children live online interactions with teachers, according to a study done among 3,569 parents of school-aged children between May and July 2020 by psychologists at the University of Sussex. Primary schools should provide opportunities for peers to interact and by contacting parents, whereas secondary schools should focus on providing educational materials and support. Homeschooling was stressful for parents but receiving feedback on submitted homework and interaction with teachers lessened stress levels. Schools should limit the number of materials they send to families.
