the hostAnytime Anywhere
A complete toolkit for remote teaching and learning whether to one child or a whole school. From loan policies to a kit audit and from resources for baffled parents to keeping on top of well being – everything you need for Anytime-Anywhere learning is here.
AUDIT OF CURRENT PROVISION
Let’s start with what you’ve got. Our comprehensive audit explores all the elements of online learning provision at your school and is the perfect springboard from which to strategise and create an action plan. Our online survey is quick and easy and gives a powerful insight into what is currently in place and areas to develop.
Make the most of what you already have and ensure that you are not missing out on the many free tools and resources available to teaching staff aiming to deliver quality, online learning opportunities. Our comprehensive research into the best resources enables teachers and pupils to move seamlessly from the real world to the virtual.
CERTIFICATION FOR TEACHERS
Whether you are using Google’s Workspace, Microsoft’s Teams and / or an Apple ecosystem there are multiple tiers of training opportunities and certification for teachers that can significantly support them and their colleagues as they prepare content and activities for synchronous or asynchronous, online learning experiences.
Teaching has changed. There are now expectations placed upon experienced practitioners that could never have been foreseen. Our tried and tested approach to efficiently and effectively training your staff (even remotely) has already supported teachers around the world in these challenging times.
STRATEGY AND ACTION PLAN
Looking through the lens of your audit, a strategy will be developed with you and your team to ensure that everything is in place for remote teaching and learning whether for one pupil, a year group or the whole school. Recommendations will be made for short, media and long term developments.
LINKS TO ONLINE RESOURCES
Our team of consultants scour the online world for the very latest resources and opportunities as they become available. Whether you are meeting a zookeeper at Chester Zoo or working out with Joe Wickes, we’ll ensure that you and your whole school community are kept up to date with the latest tools available.
Teachers work well together. Sadly, staff meetings, PPA planning sessions or even chatting over a coffee in the staff room are luxuries that can no longer be guaranteed. Ensure all of your staff know how to collaborate effectively using the many free tools and platforms to which they already have access.
AFTER SCHOOL CLUBS
In a lockdown! Why not? Whether for children in school, families at home or a mix of both; our ideas and recommendations for exciting extra curricular activities can continue to be a part of your school’s provision. After school opportunities are so important and we will ensure that they can continue even through these challenging times.
Research has already shown the impact of lockdown on the well being of our children who are suddenly finding themselves in a very different world. Our wellbeing guides will ensure that teachers and parents know how best to support the mental health of our youngsters as they embrace technological solutions to the challenges we now face.
KIT AND EQUIPMENT
Your audit will ensure that the kit you have is best utilised during any remote learning scenarios whether for one pupil or the whole school. How many resources remained in the cupboard during lockdown that could have been in the hands of your teachers or pupils? Along with our expert support and guidance on any investments, your kit and equipment can really enrich ‘anytime – anywhere‘ teaching and learning.
POLICIES AND COMPLIANCE
From lending children your IT equipment to expecting families to log in to online platforms, there are inevitably going to need to be some compliance checks and policies to put in place. Our many templates will ensure that you’ve dotted the i’s and crossed the t’s.
PARENT RESOURCES AND GUIDES
During lockdown, the Internet and social media was flooded with a wealth of opportunities and resources for parents trying to support their children’s learning at home. Needless to say, some were better than others and with such a spectrum there was limited consistency from child to child. Our collection of resources, links and opportunities ensures that you as a school can provide parents with quality resources that support your curriculum.
