Remote Education Hub offers advice on pedagogy and resources

Written by: Pete Henshaw | Published:

An online hub has launched to support teachers delivering remote education to pupils during Covid-19 lockdown.

It has been created by the National Education Union (NEU) and offers expert advice and union guidance, including advice on pedagogy for remote learning, freely available to all.

The Remote Education Hub is also hosting a social network for NEU members, allowing teaching staff to share resources and overcome challenges collaboratively.

The hub is hosted on the Foleon online platform, while the social network – exclusively for NEU members – is hosted on Guild.

Dr Mary Bousted, joint general secretary of the NEU, said: “Already, more than 100,000 people have accessed the website and more than 1,000 NEU members have shared their ideas and resources on remote education with their peers. This network will grow and develop as teachers identify new, imaginative and creative ways to engage and motivate pupils learning outside school.

“While many organisations are offering welcome subject resources and content for teachers to use, the NEU's Remote Education Hub puts the spotlight on the different ways of teaching and keeping pupils learning, at a distance. Its focus is on teaching a broad curriculum, and encouraging deep learning.”
