Terry Freedman comments on the British Office for Standards in Education, Children's Services and Skills (Ofsted) set of "some useful tips" on remote education. His criticisms, I think, are well founded (and the Ofsted document reads like someone trying to correct what is what is well-known in the field with what they 'just know' must be true based on direct instruction and 'delivering the curriculum'). Freedman uses his criticism to pivot to proting some of his own (paid) content, which you should just ignore (it's hard to know which of these two items frustrates me more). Actually - skip the Freedman article, look at the Ofsted article, but don't follow any of it (I wash my hands of this whole thing).
