‘Distance Learning’ – a new phrase! A phrase we never thought we would ever have to use the describe teaching or learning. When we began planning our entry to Discovering Primary Science, we envisaged our technology section would only be focused on what the children learned…..well, the teachers also learned a lot! During lock down we scrambled to figure out the best ways to communicate with our classes and here are a list of the systems used by our teachers;
- Our school website (www.ballyduffns.com)
- Aladdin Schools
- Microsoft Teams
- Google Classroom and Sites
Throughout lock down classes received their work via email, our school website, padlet, Google Sites and Youtube. Check out some of our padlets and websites here to see how it worked.
Many children submitted their work via email; using word documents, pdf’s and powerpoint.
We also celebrated out 6th class graduation via Zoom and a Youtube video compiled by Mr. Carey.
