This questionnaire is designed to establish, from a large sample of virtual schools, the extent to which virtual schools are involved and wish to be involved in the educational resilience likely to be required to cope adequately with future emergencies. It is being made available via various methods to the virtual schools listed in the VISCED wiki virtualeducation.wiki based mainly on data collected in 2010-2012, and other virtual schools which have in the last eight years come into existence. Many of the schools we are contacting will recognise the logo of the EU VISCED project.

Q10. Learning Resilience Network
A Learning Resilience Network is similar to the Learning Networks typical of various nations, regions and municipalities in the past, but with the additional capability to “surge-scale” systems and trained people to deliver and support online learning by students during periods of enforced closures of all or some schools in the relevant region. It can apply to various levels: municipality, region, nation or group of nations/regions (e.g. EU, Canada, Germany, etc.) linked by geography and/or language.

In particular, what role would you see for a Learning Resilience Network in your country, region or language group and what would you see as your school’s role in it?
