A school for tomorrow continuous learning toolkit Toolkit for on-line learning. Large kit with practical advice for remote teaching and learning.  The description from this page says:
Many of our clients and partners have been asking us what comes next and what the rules of the game might now be. We have also been hearing from so many that, when the virus has passed and we return to our campuses some months from now, the experience of continuous learning will prompt us to keep moving forward by building on what we will have been constructing together over the months preceding it. What we want to do is to draw together the collective wisdom of colleagues from around the world to provide you with a pathway to what might come next:
1. CHANGE THE GAME
2. LEARN CONTINUOUSLY
3. LEARN WELL
4. ASK THE RIGHT QUESTIONS
5. MAP THE JOURNEY AHEAD
6. EQUIP YOURSELF
7. EMPOWER LEARNERS
8. DESIGN SOLUTIONS

All of this suggests that the way forward is to BE A SCHOOL FOR TOMORROW.
