Before Easter the feds commissioned papers on the education impact of COVID-19-required remote learning on disadvantaged kids. And lo, it is done. That’s this Easter at the beginning of the month.
The rapid-fire research is by;
Natalie Brown and colleagues, (U Tas): Learning at home during COVID-19: effects on vulnerable young Australians
Geoff Masters, Australian Council for Educational Research: Impact on outcomes
Janet Clinton (Uni Melbourne): Supporting vulnerable children in the pandemic
Stephen Lamb (Victoria U): Outcomes for disadvantaged children
Sarah O’Shea (National Centre for Student Equity in Higher Education): Impact of learning from home
