During the spring holidays, a thorough review of distance learning took place. Our goal was to evaluate the current situation and identify specific measures that could bring further improvement for students.
During the spring break, we revised the current provision of distance learning. The school management and teachers followed the guidelines issued by the UK Department for Education as a recommendation to schools.
As suggested in the guidelines, we focused and thoroughly and critically evaluated distance learning from several perspectives: distance learning leadership, current context and student engagement, curriculum planning and delivery, capability and capacity, communication, and physical and mental wellbeing and safety.
On a scale from one to five, where the first level means serious gaps or difficulties in providing quality distance learning and the fifth level refers to an established and functioning system with examples of good practice, we oscillated around the 4th level. Given the circumstances, we consider this to be a very good result.
As part of the evaluation, we identified areas where we are doing well and which we want to improve even further and areas where it is possible to do some more. From this evaluation, several tasks arose that we have already fulfilled and that we will focus and work on in the next period.
In relation to this, we are issuing a new revised policy defining the rules for the provision of distance learning. Furthermore, with regard to the continuous closure of schools, we will focus more on the use of Agora as a means of strengthening social contact among students, we will include other school-wide events such as poetry day or maths competition or joint guided breaks online, where students can just talk.
To work with Google Classroom well, we again include links to training videos, where not only students but also parents can see how to effectively use all the features that Google Classroom offers, which can make everyone's work and easier and save time.
Here are the video links:
