Remote learning: Ofsted shares tips for improving pupil engagement and motivation

Ofsted has shared some emerging approaches and strategies to boost pupil engagement and motivation during remote education, after identifying this as one of the key barriers to learning during the Covid-19 pandemic.

New research from Ofsted finds that while the digital divide is a concern for 11 per cent of parents, 40 per cent are worried about their child’s focus and 36 per cent are concerned about their motivation, during remote education.

Furthermore, as many as two-third of parents of SEND students say they are worried about their child’s disengagement with remote learning.

The issue features strongly in an in-depth study into remote education published by Ofsted. The inspectorate has now signaled its intention to focus on effective strategies to boost pupil engagement during its spring term monitoring visits to schools, which began again this week.
