Throughout the day, the teachers post lessons on Managebac ten minutes before the start of each class. Students studying Mother Tongue languages are contacted by the Mother Tongue Coordinator and their tutors via email. All the while, the normal break times in the morning and at lunch apply. We encourage our students to practice balance and ensure they're not working alone in front of a computer all day.
Our teachers keep "regular" business hours (08:00 - 15:45) and can be contacted by their students during this time. Teachers may communicate with students, by school email or Managebac message after this time, but there is no video-conferencing after 17.00. Teachers determine themselves which weekly class they will dedicate to Microsoft Teams Video Conferencing. Students will know well ahead of time through the message board on the learning platform Managebac.
As far as attendance is concerned, moving to Remote Learning does require a lot of trust. Of course, parents do carry tremendous responsibility during Remote Learning. Parents are expected to monitor the engagement of their children, and inform us, as usual, if their child or children are unwell and cannot participate in the lessons.
