Ireland’s patchy broadband infrastructure network and poor levels of student engagement are impacting teachers’ ability to provide students with remote teaching.
A survey of by Studyclix.ie has found that just over one-third (35%) of second-level teachers nationally consider unreliable Internet access a barrier to teaching.
This figure increases in rural areas such as Co. Mayo (53%), Co. Wexford (50%), and Co. Cavan (48%) where teachers in these areas reported bad internet connection as a barrier to teaching online.
