Learning Continuity Online and at Home

The Department of Education has a number of online tools and resources to support schools to ensure continuity of learning during events such as bushfire, floods and the recent COVID-19 pandemic. Many of these tools can be found in the Learning Place, the department’s online learning platform. The option/s you take will be a school-based decision that consider existing school processes and students’ ability to work from home.


Curriculum resources

A suite of curriculum resources providing opportunities and resources for students to continue their learning while not being able to access a school have been developed.

These materials are designed as a support tool for students to engage in familiar activities essential to their learning and wellbeing. The included tasks and activities allow for students to work at their own pace from home. These materials can be accessed at:
