Background: The International Network for School Attendance (INSA) in collaboration with Continuity in Education is hosting a call for papers. INSA’s Mission is to promote school attendance and respond to school attendance problems. It aims to compile, generate, evaluate, and disseminate information, assessment, and intervention strategies. This Special section of Continuity in Education will focus on activities or studies which examine how and what can be done to support students continuing their schooling and development while or after facing varied difficulties or disruptions in their lives. This includes investigations on how school attendance can be classified and identified and which approaches can be applied for the prevention and management of school attendance problems. Disruptions may include but are not limited to medical (psychological or other), behavioural, legal, criminal, parental, environmental, and or school policy/ practice.

Types of articles: Research articles: 8000 words, Practice and intervention: 8000 words, and Theoretical/methodological: 6000 words. Please submit early.

The coronavirus emergency is challenging mainstream schools to create digital learning environments that are engaging for students who are used to working face-to-face in a socially rich context. But the true pedagogical challenge is to help students to make a sense of what is happening around them, to reconstruct their social and growth-related fabric, and to keep their process of development going despite the isolation and the greater physical distance under which they currently live.
How are your schools coping with all this? What type of distance learning tools are your schools using? Can students be involved as active learners and not just passive recipients of curriculum-related content? Can the experience and sound practices of home and hospital education be extended to mainstream schools? What are the psychological effects of the isolation in children?
If you have any effective practice or research to share, Continuity in Education is open to receiving papers on these subjects, and the papers will be published given the highest priority.
The Editorial Team of Continuity In Education is also considering standard articles for publication in the 2021 issue of the journal. Please check out our author guidelines and see what types of articles we publish.
