Brisbane Grammar School (BGS) - a leader in innovative education - emerged from recent home-based education with new insight into teaching and learning.

While moving 1700 students from its Spring Hill campus to digital home-based learning was a huge task, executive director of educational innovation Jacqui Zervos said BGS met the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic head on.

"From the very first week of home-learning back in term 1, we've been asking our students how they are coping, and responding quickly to students to identify their wellbeing and academic needs," Ms Zervos said.

"With this data, teachers have designed learning activities to support their use of digital technologies that promote student thinking."

The school's development of effective thinking cultures - explicit instruction in adapting to unfamiliar situations and challenges - fits into this new digital reality."
