REMOTE & FLEXIBLE LEARNING

The Victorian Premier announced on August 2 that students will be resuming flexible and remote learning from Wednesday 5th August for the next six weeks.  This means that all students who can learn from home, must learn from home.

 

Crusoe College is committed to ensuring that our students are still be able to access a viable curriculum through accessing online learning resources from home, as well as paper based resources for those who do not have access to a device or the internet.

 

The following arrangements are in place to support students, whether they are learning at school, or from home. Please note that while the College is prepared to commence remote learning, it won’t always be perfect and we will learn as we go. Our plan includes ways parents and students can be guided as to whom questions should be directed as well as specific expectations associated with all involved in this online learning experience.

 

Students are advised, where possible, to continue their learning in 70 minutes blocks of time throughout the day as they would at school. This will assist teachers with co-ordinating online video meetings, where the entire class can be contacted through a program such as GoogleMeet. Teachers will set online learning tasks on Compass under the Learning Tasks tab, that students will be able to access. They will let students know if, and when they will meet in an online video class.

 

Teacher Responsibility

  • Teachers will be working hard to develop high quality learning materials that can be accessed at home. These resources will be able to be accessed via Compass
  • Teachers will be available online during school hours for students and parents to contact them via email or  through Compass with queries regarding student learning tasks.
  • Teachers will make reasonable adjustments for students who do not have access to technology at home, which includes hard copy learning packages to be sent home on request.
