How to remotely deliver content(6 Posts)
In these very strange times we find ourselves in, I am trying to work out the best way forward with my Y12 class. I teach a science of that's relevant.
This first week, I hav me actually been on compassionate leave so haven't been in contact with the students. I set them plenty of revision and consolidation work before school finished.
My next challenge though is to deliver new content remotely. I can't leave it all for when we eventually return to school due to time constraints.
I have internet, laptop,access to teams etc.
Does anyone have advice/tips on the best way forward?

My school is using google classroom, you can connect through the calendar then to google hangouts and teach live lessons. The kids and parents have been very positive about it as they have valued the personal contact. We tend to do one live session per subject a week and then set independent tasks to be submitted via classroom. You can upload materials, links etc and they then upload their response.
A powerpoint with all the info they need and relevant embedded videos and then corresponding worksheets which are all put on Google classroom and they can handed in. The biggest challenge for me is providing one set of work that will be appropriate for students with a reading age as low as 6 and others with a reading age of 16.
I'm sending them the powerpoint I would have used in the lesson, combined with links to youtube videos and websites like chemguide (I'm a chemist), then I set my usual worksheets/past exam paper questions etc. and get them to send their answers to me, so I can check understanding.
To be fair, the content I was in the middle of teaching when school closed was quite amenable to them researching it themselves. Teaching some of the calculation topics might be more difficult. I've finished the syllabus after this topic though, so I think I'll give them a few weeks of revision.
Thanks for all of the ideas! Will be giving them a go in the coming week.
Good point about topic choice. The one Inwould ordinarily do at the end of Y12 isn't really the best for online teaching (needs practical etc.) So, I think I will reorder it and do one of the others.
Keeping fingers crossed it works!
