An independent review of the disruption to Tasmanians' education caused by the coronavirus pandemic is needed to improve student engagement and retention, the Labor party says.
Labor education spokesman Josh Willie said many students did not do well learning remotely, with this period exposing inequalities.
"Many students and families struggled with remote learning and some will be playing 'catch up' now they're back at school," Mr Willie said.
"While school-based learning is the best approach for most students, there's merit in looking more closely at remote learning.
"Schools have observed students with anxiety, and students disengaged from learning for other reasons, thriving during remote learning.
"That suggests we should have a closer look at making remote learning an ongoing mode of education for students who need support or have different learning styles, alongside traditional schooling."

Mr Willie said while some schools have been surveying students and parents and capturing other information, a system-wide independent review should be initiated as soon as possible.
"That would allow us to capture insights while the experience is fresh in people's minds, understand what worked well and what could be embedded moving forward," he said.
"Anything we can learn from the education disruption that helps keep students engaged and in school is worth looking at.
"It could examine resourcing, professional learning, access to technology, student mental health and wellbeing, attendance, engagement and retention."
Mother Heather Stanton said her two daughters, Holly and Maia, approached remote learning differently.
"Holly liked to be out and about and to bounce ideas off me. Maia was very efficient and liked to work by herself, she didn't want my input," Ms Stanton said.
"It was really nice to be able to see what work they were doing, what standard they were doing it at, if it was difficult and to share."
Government Minister Sarah Courtney said a review of this nature was not necessary.
"We know that everybody worked very hard through Term 1 and Term 2 to provide the very best education for our young people," Ms Courtney said.
"We know it was a very difficult decision by the government to learn from home.
"The most important thing that we can all do at the moment is continue to focus on the welfare of our young people, get them into the classroom as they now are and make sure their learning is great for the rest of the year.
"It's a bit surprising and disappointing Labor is coming out with this - they too called for schools to close."
