Thank you for all you are doing to support home learning.
We recognise that this can be challenging to manage in busy households and when access to technology is stretched (many of us are parents and it is no easier for us!). We hope that the tutor check in phone calls have helped to support with any particular challenges.
We have listened to your feedback and have streamlined the way we are sharing learning online.
- All lessons will be shared via Google Classroom so that you have only one place to track learning activities set.
- We are aiming to set approximately 15 hours of work per week, which seems to be the manageable balance between maintaining learning and not overloading families.
- We will continue to provide lessons for a variety of subjects.
Our staff have been given additional training in using Google tools so that we can improve the learning experiences. We are all learning at the moment! To help learners make the best use of Google Classroom, Mr Mulhall has shared this guidance document. This includes a very helpful tip for tracking work and deadlines.
We continue to explore all ways for delivering remote teaching, trialling a number of options including broadcast and live lessons. We will be extending these trials next week and we are thinking carefully about finding a good balance between a range of teaching strategies for enabling remote learning.
