The government says its working closely with schools to help teachers use technology to teach children.
It’s whilst children are unable to attend face-to-face classes.
The Department of Education, Sport and Culture acknowledges says it’s accelerating new ways to deliver online teaching and remote learning.
The Department’s recommended IT platform ‘Itslearning’allows teachers to engage with pupils and provide feedback on work submitted from home.
Schools have also been encouraged to loan devices such as iPads to households who may be struggling to access the teaching and resources being made available.
This is alongside exploring greater broadband coverage for disadvantaged families.
