Over the next few weeks and possibly into the Autumn Term, more teachers will be delivering live stream or video lessons via Teams or other digital platforms. Your children may have experienced this already. We have developed a learner and parental agreement (attached) which sets out principles and guidelines for you to follow. Learners will be notified of live stream lessons via Show My Homework. By joining in the live streaming session, all parties are agreeing to adhere to the attached principles. A copy of the agreement has also been placed on the school website.
As you know, learners have missed the interaction and explanations from their teachers during lockdown. Video lessons or live stream lessons allow learners to listen to explanations of tasks and ask questions which in turn helps them to understand and complete their work. If they have downloaded the Teams App on their phones, this gives them the option of listening to the live stream lessons on their phones not just on the family laptop or computer. The live lessons will be recorded so that pupils can listen to them over and over again or at a time convenient to you as a family. If printing off worksheets is a problem, they can pause the recording at key moments and copy questions on to paper or a Word document and then take the time to answer them or rewind and listen to the explanation again. If access to a computer or laptop in order to type up answers is a problem, they can take photos of their completed work and send to the teacher by uploading the photos on to Show My Homework or Teams. I have also attached instructions of how to upload documents on to these platforms.
In an effort to further support parents and learners in accessing and utilising the Satchel app we would like to draw your attention to the attached links.Parental support. https://help.satchelone.com/en/collections/1695420-parentsLearners support link. https://help.satchelone.com/en/collections/1695417-studentsThese support materials have been created by Satchel and are quite comprehensive.
