List of online education resources for home education and schools - Coronavirus (COVID 19)

Updated: Jun 16

We have been contacted by numerous companies telling us about their free or discounted products. We have therefore been collecting resources for teachers and schools impacted by coronavirus closings. In addition, we are adding blog posts about remote learning and various recommended platforms by Headteacher Chat. If you have any ideas, please share on Twitter with the handle @headteacherchat.


Hope you find this helpful. This is a work in progress. Please email us for additions or changes: admin@headteacherchat.com
