Relationships are important for all learners, says strategic education advisor Jackie Jodl, but they are particularly important to those who are at risk. When it comes to promoting engagement and sustained performance, the research shows that boys are more dependent on these student-teacher relationships than girls.
An important question in the wake of COVID is how technology can enrich these relationships and contribute to learning in remote and hybrid settings?
Jodl sees this “disruption” as an opportunity for all parties involved—from teachers and parents to policy makers—to come together and make this new form of learning work.
