Heuristic (adj.) Enabling a person to discover or learn something for themselves.
‘A Heuristic Interlude’
‘A Heuristic Interlude’ tells the stories of five families in the U.K, who were not Home-Educating prior to lockdown, but since trialling this way of living and learning – through Home-Schooling during school closures – have either decided to de-register their children from school, or are seriously considering doing so before schools return in September.
Through intertwining visual imagery, personal interviews with the families, National Home-schooling surveys, & Education based pandemic research, I have created a microcosm of the situations many families in the U.K now face , when deciding how best to live and learn together going forward.
