Teaching and learning online has become crucial in the last year due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. Now more than ever, our pupils are being challenged in ways they never have, and are expected to overcome said challenges with ease. I have chosen to look at engagement with online learning as it is a varied and wide spread concern across Scotland. Pupils are being asked to provide their usual work in the most unusual of circumstances. Whilst this may be more of a challenge to some, others have excelled in this new experience of learning. This enquiry will focus on engagement to online learning in the context of Religious Education, how it was approached and the outcomes of it.
Throughout this enquiry, a targeted class of pupils will undergo various methods of online learning. During this period, their work will be monitored to see which method of teaching encourages a stronger and more effective work flow from pupils. In addition to this, pupils will also be asked their opinion at various stages of learning in order to inform the continuation of teaching for pupils in a way which feels most relevant and engaging to them.
