Students and parents can expect regular communication from their teachers.
Clear direction from teachers will be communicated and posted. Students will need to access respective platforms daily to find lessons, resources and assignments.
Students are expected to be proactive in seeking out the information they need. Students should not expect for teachers to email alerts or reminders to students, as new information will be posted daily.
Outside of online activities, it is expected that students will get off the computer, be active and learn in non-digital ways.
Learning experiences that involve physical activities, resources, or spaces:
Physical activity is critical for healthy development. As such, teachers will endeavor to assign activities and discussions that enable students to engage in physical experiences and collect evidence of and reflections on what they have done. This will be applied in all age groups, and will be dependent on the amount of supervision students will need to conduct physical activities both indoors and outdoors – if allowed.
For younger learners, special software that uses video evidencing and adult reflection may be used. Parents or guardians will need to supervise younger learners in their play and learning activities—with the teacher providing some basic guidelines on what to observe. The teacher may also set up video conferencing with learners and guardians to discuss the children’s development.
