During this time our school has been looking at lots of different ways to develop our online learning facility so that we are fully prepared to continue teaching and learning in the event of a government-enforced school closure. Teachers have attended additional training sessions so that all subjects will be delivered in an appropriate and meaningful way across all age groups within the school.
At High School, learning provisions will be delivered through our two main platforms - Moodle and Google. Our Moodle platform has been used extensively for years as a vital link between home and school and has many excellent resources. We have now extended our Google suite to include the use of Google Meet, a multi-way video conference application. This will allow High School students to continue to follow the regular timetable throughout any shutdown period, with classes meeting together, listening to live presentations, and engaging in discussions. Many teachers have already practiced this with some of their classes, and are finding that it is a very effective learning tool.
At Primary, it will be Seesaw that will be the main platform for sharing resources and uploading student work. To enable this to happen in a secure manner, all students will be provided with a personal username and password - currently this is only given to Year 3 and above. Parents will shortly receive an email with this information, along with instructions on how to login, so that we can iron out any potential problems ahead of time.
We have also been listening closely to the experiences of other Nord Anglia schools which are in regions where school shutdowns are already in effect. We’ve been able to learn a lot from these discussions. These have not been just about the best technology and apps to use, but the need to ensure a balance of offline and online work, and the importance of continuing the pastoral care of our students as they learn from home.
