Which interventions work best to overcome learning deficits? This toolkit provides a practical guide for promising interventions in primary education.
Since 16 December 2020, the Netherlands has been in a hard lockdown. As was the case in March 2020, all schools have had to close their doors; this means that schools are physically closed to the vast majority of pupils until at least 17 January 2021. The provision of education at a distance has therefore become unavoidable. Education Lab NL and the Education Inspectorate have investigated which promising interventions can help with distance learning. For this purpose, we conducted a literature study of overview studies and a series of separate scientific studies. We focused on hard and convincing evidence, i.e. we limited ourselves to studies that met the very highest scientific standards.
Our research shows that with good distance learning and additional measures at the school level, it is possible to provide effective distance learning.
