Isolating Teacher

Should a member of the 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. Below is an explanation of these methods all of which are delivered through Microsoft Teams and available to students from 8:50am each morning, except a live lesson, which students can access via their class Team at the start of their timetabled lesson.

If a lesson is not live, teachers are available to support students through the Microsoft Teams chat feature.

 

Teams Assignment

Teachers will create an assignment within the Microsoft Team. The assignment will contain a variety of high quality learning material including:

A staff tutorial is available in the remote learning folder in the staff shared drive

 

Live Lesson – Using the Teams ‘Meet Now’ feature

The teacher uses the ‘meet now’ feature in Teams. This creates a post in the relevant students Team that allows the student to click on a ‘join meeting’ button. Once the teacher has allowed those requesting to join, join, the teacher can start their lesson by using their voice, sharing their screen or use an electronic whiteboard through Microsoft Whiteboard.
