Remember the evidence and our acronym in your planning this week.
R – retrieval and recap activities. Low-stakes. Quick feedback. Self-marking.
E – Engage students – stimulus, questions, ‘chat’, feedback etc.
M – motivate through peer interaction (peer marking, sharing WAGOLLs, prompt live discussion through ‘chat’ function of Teams)
O – Outcomes – make explicit using check lists, success criteria, weekly plan/big picture etc. INTENT.
T – Teaching quality – this is more important than how it is delivered. Think about how you assess what students have learnt.
E – Expectations – be realistic but aspirational.
The DfE have updated their Remote Learning resources:
Whilst much of it seems to state the obvious, there is the occasional nugget. Teachers have offered approaches to remote learning that are working for them. One teacher suggests:
“Start by offering new content via flipped learning methods to initiate learning (where pupils are introduced to material before class), then add more information during lesson time… and finish off by offering group work and/or activities to deepen learning.”
Stephen Trask of Harris Federation also had a useful suggestion: “Point out the value of learning that topic, beyond just for exams purposes. Again, something like Ted Talks helps here because it gives pupils the ‘bigger picture’.”
The ‘nugget’ here is the use of Ted Talks. They may be a good source of inspiration.
