Lockdown 3 is upon us, and if we can help in any way, please get in touch.
The Schools ICT Team have a vast amount of knowledge on Remote Learning Environments, and can help with set up or day to day usage/administration.
We have offerings in both Microsoft Teams and Google Classroom,
both environments offer many features, including the following:
- Instant Chat – for easy communication with students and staff
- Video capability - so lessons and meetings can be held on line
- Assignment upload areas, allowing teachers to set assignments and give feedback
- File Storage in the cloud
If you are looking to overcome any challenges with remote teaching and learning, please contact us as we have a specialist Senior Education Adviser who is experienced in applying the technologies available to schools today to overcome the challenges of remote teaching and learning as well as school leadership and management in a digital environment.
If you are interested in training your staff on a Google Classroom solution, Schools ICT can offer an one hour introduction to Google Classroom as a staff CPD session. This can be followed with a more bespoke hour on the features of Google Classroom which can help ensure your online classrooms run as smoothly and efficiently as your real world equivalents.
We can set up remote learning environments for you and deliver training so you can hit the ground running and offer as little disruption to staff and pupils as possible. Our price for both setting up, and delivering remote training, in Teams is a one off fee of £465. Further information can be found here https://cirrus.schoolsict.co.uk/teams/. If you are interested in Google, please contact us and we can talk through the options.
If you have any questions, please contact us: https://cirrus.schoolsict.co.uk/contact-us/
