Tasks are emailed to Parents, who can then share their progress with the Primary teachers using Tapestry
We will be starting to introduce our students to using Teams to support learning at home and in school. Below you will find a useful HOW TO video to help you to navigate Teams at home.
Microsoft Teams allows students to connect and communicate with their teachers, and participate in scheduled Teams Meeting lessons. Tapestry and Edulink still need to be checked for tasks and school communication.
For the best experience with ‘Microsoft Teams‘, students should install the app onto the device they use for home learning. The link to install Teams is available here or via the Google Play or Apple App stores if you use a smartphone or Tablet.
Once installed, the app is logged on to using the student email address, and password.
A Webcam or device camera is not needed for students to participate in the scheduled lessons but can be used if available. A built in microphone or mic\headphones can be used to respond to questions by voice. If a mic is not available it is still possible to respond to the teacher via text responses.
Any scheduled Teams meetings appear in the Calendar and an invite is emailed to students email.
At the time of the scheduled lesson students can join via the calendar, link in email, or via their class Team channel.
Once the scheduled lesson begins, Students should mute their microphones. If they would like to ask a question they can ‘Raise their hand’ or type a message using the message button. Microphones should only be unmuted when requested to do so by the teacher. Students need to remember to ‘lower their hand’, and re-mute their mic afterward. For further information on Teams etiquette, and expected Behaviour\sanctions, please refer to the Teams protocol letter above.
