Staff training to continue the evolution of remote learning
We all know that lessons where interactivity with the teacher is high, learning will be good. On Wednesday 10th February, all teaching staff were introduced to eight different ways to engage students ‘live’ in their ’remote classrooms’. Some of the training involved using apps and websites like Quizizz, Quizlet and Spiral, others focused on the interactivity that can be promoted through MS Teams, such as using ‘breakout rooms’ for discussion, live polling for Q&A sessions and using ‘class notebook’ and ‘assignments’ to monitor work and produce feedback.
Our keynote speaker, Dr Alnuamaani (Senior Tutor for the Sixth Form and a parent of a Trinity student in Year 9) reassured us that ‘live’ teaching – traditional classroom type interactions – are the lifeblood of what schooling is about – and for staff not to worry if everything doesn’t work out – that’s just like normal adventurous classroom teaching we expect at Trinity! We will be monitoring your feedback on the improvements we make to developing ‘interactivity’ in lessons via the next round of targeted parental surveys after half term.
