Tips for Remote Learning

1. Help students get up, get dressed and ready to learn on time.

  • Keep appropriate bedtime routines. It is important that students are well rested.
  • Make sure students have breakfast before the start of their remote learning day.
  • Make sure they are logged in on-time.

2. Choose a good place to learn

  • Set up a quiet location with a good internet connection that’s dedicated to school-focused activities.
  • Make sure an adult monitors online learning.
  • Keep doors open, and practice good digital safety.

3. Stay in touch

*Teachers will mainly be communicating regularly through our online platforms and virtual learning environments.

  •  Make sure everyone knows how to find the help they need to be successful.
  • Stay in contact with classroom teachers, school leaders and counsellors but understand it may take a day or two for them to respond.
  • If you have concerns, let someone know.

4. Help students ‘own’ their learning

*No one expects parents to be full-time teachers or to be educational and content matter experts.

  • Provide support and encouragement, and expect your children to do their part.
  • Understand that struggling is allowed and encouraged! Don’t help too much.
  • Remember that becoming independent takes lots of practice.
