What does ‘virtual learning’ look like for you?

Postby cwmack » Tue Mar 31, 2020 4:36 pm

Hi all
I am curious to hear what schools - state and private - are providing for at-home learning (at the KS2 level).
Are most doing homework packs? Regular online/interactive sessions with teachers? A mix?
These are extraordinary times and stressful for all, including teachers who are also caring for key workers’ children — so really not looking to ignite a complaining session! Just genuinely wondering what best practices are emerging, particularly as there doesn’t seem to be official/government guidance on this.
Thank you!

Our school is using Canvas which is ok for homework or assignments during holidays but not really a "full time learning"tool. Myself and other parents have already contacted our school asking to look at implementing Google classroom or something similar if this lock-down continues for a long time (which is likely).They have replied that they are NOT interested in live video streaming the lessons for safeguarding reasons :roll: ...other schools are able to navigate the safeguarding issues...
