Should a member of teaching staff need to isolate or in the event of a school closure, teachers have a number of methods available to them to teach remotely and are supported by our 'Remote Learning Guide' and weekly remote learning newsletter "3-2-1 Fridays".
All lessons start with a Teams meeting where staff greet students and take a register. The teacher then has a number of options:
The teacher continues the Teams meeting and starts the lesson by using their voice, sharing their screen or an electronic whiteboard through Microsoft Whiteboard. Teachers are encouraged to use a number of apps and features of Teams to engage learners, including, Flipgrid, Quizziz, Nearpod, polls, breakout rooms, Padlet and more.
Teachers will create an assignment within the Microsoft Team. The assignment will contain a variety of high quality learning material including:
Recorded lesson via Stream
Stream is an app available to use at office.tmet.org.uk allowing a teacher to record their screen activity and voice for up to 15 minutes. The teacher can then share the link to the recorded lesson by posting onto the class Team.
Adding verbal instructions to PowerPoint
Teacher adds voice-overs to an existing PowerPoint and then posts as an assignment onto Microsoft Teams.
