Remote Learning Options: Training Session today

With the announcement over the weekend that schools will move to remote learning temporarily after the holidays, we wanted to offer a training session tonight that will highlight options available to you so you can continue to offer high quality learning experiences during this time.

The session can be accessed using the Google Meet code below: This is for Highland Council staff only.

The session will run today – 21st December at 4.30 pm.
The duration is set to one hour but it will most likely be a bit shorter than this.

The training will highlight three options that we think may be useful to people and how you might structure these online:

  • Instructional videos which can be used in one of two ways:
      • As an independent learning opportunity
        Teachers would share the instructional video and then set a series of questions related to the content.
        An example would be this video here on Understanding the Meaning of the Equals Sign:
    • As a group discussion
      Teachers would use the video to facilitate a group discussion online
      An example would be this video here on Incrementing and Decrementing in Fifths: 
  • Using Story Problems to facilitate high quality, rich discussions
    • We ran this successfully during the last period of remote learning and had great success with it with the classes we worked with.  
    • We will talk through options so you can find out more and use it with your own classes if you wish.
  • Using the Home Learning materials that are available on the Digital Hub

The session will be rerun in January before the children return, a date, time and link will be posted here in due course.

We hope you can join us as we think this will be useful for teachers and provide opportunities for high quality teaching and learning but in a manageable way that isn’t creating excessive work load.

If we don’t see you there, have a great Christmas and enjoy a well earned break.

    Will this be recorded to watch at a later date? Thank you Tracy Watters



    • I will aim to put a recording up at some point and also rerun the session in the first week that teachers are back after the holidays so people have the opportunity to ask any questions about anything.
      The recording will be put on the blog under the CPD section and also on the Highland Digital Hub.
      Hope that helps,
