|Full Title:||The impact of e-learning on the self confidence, sense of worth and academic progress of students who are out of school|
|Abstract:||E-learning is used in East Sussex as a means of education for young people unable to attend school for a variety of reasons: eg through ill health, permanently excluded, at risk of permanent exclusion and subjects of bullying. In addition to this it is used for young people who may need some ‘timeout’ from the classroom (ASD students) or need top-up in their education (LAC, school age mothers).
There are a variety of ways that the young people and their families can provide feedback on the education they receive- visits from service TAs to set them up and support them technically, through follow-up phone calls to ensure all is going well, to their teacher in the live on-line lessons, through questionnaires completed when the sessions end or at regular periods of time eg end of academic year and through Pupil Voice questionnaires/structured interviews.
Experience has shown that the good results achieved academically through this means of delivery are reliant on regular contact through the methods above and support.
Students talking about their experience will be shown on dvd during the presentation.
