Neil Rickus - What the Research Tells Us About Remote Learning and How We all Need Some JOMO (the Joys of Missing Out) To Manage Our Digital Wellbeing

About the Session

Many schools are delivering remote teaching and online learning for the first time. During this session, we’ll examine the research around improved learning outcomes through mixed instruction and this applies to school settings. We’ll also discuss how the use of technology for teaching and learning, which often takes place in the home and / or on personal devices, can impact on our wellbeing and how disconnecting from our digital devices can be beneficial.
