Join Oak National Academy for the launch of our annual report, evaluation, and to look ahead at the future of online learning.

Oak launched just under 18 months ago to provide remote lessons for teachers and pupils during lockdown. Our platform has grown to host over 10,000 lessons, with pupils having now taken part in more than 130 million lessons. Oak has been used by 58% of all schools - used extensively for lesson planning, in-class teaching and cover, as well as remote provision.

Our second annual report documents our progress, drawing on an evaluation of our impact by ImpactEd.

We’ll also delve into research on how both children and teachers are using the platform. Current evidence on what makes for effective online or blending learning for pupils is thin on the ground, with the expansion of digital resources far outpacing research. We want to share our learning so far, helping to inform the future of digital learning.

Please join us on Tues Sept 21 to discuss our findings, plus what we and others predict to be the future of online learning.

Chaired by Nicola Woolcock, Education Editor at The Times, speakers will include:

Matt Hood, Principal, Oak National Academy Reka Budai, Research & Evaluation Manager, Oak National Academy Owen Carter, Managing Director, ImpactEd Natalie Perera, Chief Executive, Education Policy Institute
