ARNEC's Webinar Series, Young children amidst COVID-19: #4_Distance learning approaches for young children
This webinar focuses on distance learning approaches for young children and their families
and caregivers, particularly transforming the home as a safe learning space through online/digital and non-digital platforms.

A particular concern is responding to the needs of families and communities with limited or no internet connectivity, or who are not literate or deem themselves not competent to ‘teach’ their young children: how can they be empowered then to overcome barriers to learning in the home and supported with context-sensitive non-digital learning approaches?

Some of the key questions that will be answered in the webinar are:

• What is the overall impact of COVID-19 containment measures (e.g., lockdown
measures, stay at home, school closures) on young children’s development
especially in terms of early learning opportunities? How will the situation impact
young children, both in the short and long-term?

• What guidance can be provided to parents and caregivers who may not be
educated or literate to support distance learning of their young children? How can
they be supported to engage their young children amidst the many pressures they
are facing during this crisis?
