British Council signature event: Remote teaching - bridging the gap

This event looks at the effectiveness of remote teaching and the British Council partnership with Plan Ceibal in Uruguay.

1.5 hours

About this event

How can you teach English in schools if you don’t have enough teachers to do so? In Uruguay, the British Council is working in partnership with Plan Ceibal to bridge the gap and offer children in primary schools across the country the chance to learn English via videoconferencing with teachers from Montevideo, London, Argentina and the Philippines. The results show the children are learning as much as or more than they would do in a more typical primary classroom.

This presentation is centred round a new British Council publication on the lessons learnt from remote teaching in Uruguay and elsewhere, and on how that learning can be applied in other teaching contexts. As is technologically appropriate, it will feature live interviews with Plan Ceibal in Uruguay, a ‘remote teacher’ from the Philippines, and a Uruguayan primary school currently taking part in Plan Ceibal.
