Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Try getting that one past the Irish teacher unions!

But seriously, a move to teach on-line study skills and providing all teaching materials and homework assignments on-line is well past its due date in any case, supplemented by real world sessions as you suggest. However you will find some opposition from supported by their unions, who prefer the traditional classroom environment, and parents who are mainly concerned that the school provide a child minding service while they are at work or otherwise engaged.

The teacher's unions are quite powerful,  militant and blinkered in Ireland.

If the government determines that it is not safe to have in-classroom instruction in the fall they will have to go with online instruction. How are the teachers dealing with that now?
