Moving to a virtual classroom

As schools move to a remote learning environment, Teams can provide an online classroom that brings together virtual face-to-face connections, assignments, files, and conversations into a single platform accessible on a mobile device, tablet, PC, or browser.

To help make this process as simple as possible, we have created a best practices guide for school leaders and IT to get up and running quickly, so their students and staff to begin communicating remotely.

Students should be on audio only not video. Any student who is on video must switch it off.  Students should stay muted during the course of the lesson

Students must wait for the teacher to give permission to speak and can raise a virtual hand to ask a question

Any interactions must be respectful and polite. Any talking should be between teacher and student.

Interactions through Teams should be of the same standard as they would be in a school classroom. The normal school behaviour policy applies. Teachers reserve the right to remove a student from the live lesson should any problems arise.
