Schooling has been associated with teachers and learners interacting in physical classrooms. However, when campuses close, alternative ways need to be found to ensure continuity of learning. This document explores how distance and online learning approaches can and have been used to support continuity of learning and how these approaches might continue to be used even after school campuses have re-opened. It can be demonstrated that an integrated schooling system, with physical, distance and online learning components, can be both more resilient and more inclusive. This publication identifies useful key questions which might help education officials with their planning and decision-making.
