Guidelines for School and Teachers
Common ways that schools and teachers can deliver online learning during school closures:
This is our recommended approach wherever possible to do so. For example, a student can ‘dial in’ to a lesson using technologies such as Skype, Facetime, Google Hangouts, or similar when a teacher live stream lessons to students at scheduled times.
This is another option allowed. However, it is recommended that teachers add the following notice at the beginning of the video:
If this is not practical, it would be a good idea to email students (or put a notice in school blogs or other communication platforms) reminding students and parents that remote lessons are being provided to them as part of their school’s response to COVID-19, and that they must not make any further copies of any of the content provided to them, including sharing with friends, via social media, or uploading to the internet.
Teachers may wish to upload material to a Digital Teaching Environment such as YouTube, Office 365, Microsoft Teams and others for students to access.
Due to internet/bandwidth issues, teachers and schools may need to provide students with photocopies of print resources or a USB or DVD of print resources. Teachers should send a cover letter with the resources that states the materials have been provided for the student’s educational use during the COVID-19 outbreak and no further copies should be made.
Students can be provided with schedules to view the appropriate educational resource on this platform from home.
Curriculum Department will identify the ‘must do’ components to be covered by the teacher this year so that teachers do not panic and rush to finish the syllabus.
In this crisis time when the teachers do not meet their students physically, such rush would induce unnecessary stress and anxiety among the teachers, students and it might escalate to the parents too
Should not be entirely dependent on access to, and/or ability to use a device
Use of a printer is optional
When a new concept is to be taught, consider recording a video to introduce it
Internet-connected device many not be needed all the time
Between 07:30 – 08:30, or at agreed time
Particularly so for students from disadvantaged background
Through such monitoring, students who are challenging to reach could receive more attention and support from the school
Such practices could be shared with other teachers in the school or to other schools too
