Educational continuity during COVID-19: supporting teachers and families

Ensuring educational continuity in a situation of confinement is not an easy task, both for teachers and families. In order to support teachers but also families during this period, when children learn differently, resources developed in 2019 are made available in French on the website Réussir, Etre bien, Etre ensemble.

The aim of these resources is for children to learn:

  • about the body and health;
  • the ability to take care of themselves and others;
  • personal, social and citizen skills, such as respect for themselves and others, the ability to build personal opinions and to be assertive in a constructive way;
  • about the physical and digital environment at the national, Oceanian and global level.

They have been developed to be used in classrooms in New Caledonia but can also be used to support distant learning activities for primary school children, aged 6 to 10. They are thus intended to be adapted to different situations.

These resources were developed by teams from the Direction de l’Enseignement de Nouvelle-Calédonie (DENC), the agence sanitaire et sociale (ASS), the UNESCO Chair and WHO Collaborating Centre Global Health & Education with more than hundred teachers from the three provinces.
