Researchers seek teacher and parent views on home education technologies

Researchers have launched a survey into the success – or otherwise – of the huge range of learning technologies being used during the school shutdown.

The ed-tech accelerator, EDUCATE, which is based at University College London (UCL), is inviting heads, teachers and parents to respond to a questionnaire to find out how effective remote learning has been in recent weeks, and what can be learned from the experience.

Rose Luckin, professor of learner-centred design at the UCL Knowledge Lab and founding director of EDUCATE, said the shutdown of schools had presented the ed-tech industry and the education system with a unique opportunity to carry out a study into the phenomenon.

“There is a need for facts, data and evidence to demonstrate the value, or not, of the unprecedented way in which technology is being used to support teaching and learning during the school lockdown,” she said.
