    This should be an option, definitely, as most young people are faster typists than scribes. However, there should always be the option of hand written responses as, whilst electronically is better for the environment, some young people don’t have that option given circumstances and we need to be 100% inclusive to 100% of young people.

    I have to disagree with all forms being delivered online, unless it is to supplement face to face teaching. Alternatively, provide learners with the choice on how best to engage with their work, be that online or on paper.

    Some students are unable to focus when doing tasks online, and some are unable to fully focus when doing them in person and on paper, so to create a properly inclusive learning environment, the two should supplement each other, rather than one replacing the other.
