COVID Questionnaire results

The APE conducted an opinion poll to understand:

  • what families have enjoyed most about home schooling and from back to school until today.
  • Their expectations of the school, in the current context and in the context of potential confinement.
  • Their expectations from APE in the current context

We collected 212 responses, representing the experience of 249 preschool (16%), primary (45%), middle school (25%) and high school (14%) students.

The full results are published here.

In summary, we see two main fields of action to improve the experience of families in the context of distance education,  (1)- digital tools and processes, and (2) – quality of communication.

THE IMPORTANCE OF TOOLS AND PROCESSES

  • For a good distance learning experience, families favor the following good practices:
  • Quality ICT support > teachers must have all the tools and a good Internet connection
  • Ease of online navigation > 1 platform per student, homework should be easy to find
  • Limit the need to print at home > homework should be easy to do on screen
  • Frequent follow-up with teachers > parent and / or student – teacher video conferences, in small groups
  • Governance on the part of the school > harmonize practices while respecting the pedagogical choices of teachers

GOOD QUALITY OF COMMUNICATION WILL MAKE THE DIFFERENCE

  • Simplify protocols and recall them frequently
  • Communicate more widely on new COVID cases and the actions taken
  • Organize regular videoconferences between families and school

The Bureau thanks all those who participated in this questionnaire.
