By forcing schools to close and adopt remote or hybrid teaching practices, the pandemic has shed light on the learning methods of students and the support they need to become autonomous learners. The learning journey offered by A@L, based on a toolkit proposing concrete tools and strategies, will hopefully contribute to helping schools in reshaping their approach to learning and assessment and equip them to deal with the educational challenges of COVID and post-COVID societies.
