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.
