Distance learning in Warrnambool schools resumes with efficiency and fatigue | The standard

news, latest news,

Schools in Warrnambool were given just hours’ notice before switching to distance learning for Friday and say online education will be more in-depth starting next week. Teachers are now accustomed to preparing for schoolwork remotely, according to principals, but received the shortest notice yet when Friday’s five-day COVID-19 lockdown was announced hours in advance. Warrnambool College principal David Clift said despite the tight deadlines, teachers have shown confidence and efficiency in adjusting student work. “The announcement came after the end of the school day, then we had to correspond with people after school hours,” Mr. Clift said. “There was a feeling we knew what we were doing.” He said students either did not follow schedules on Friday or did not have direct supervision, with the Education Ministry allowing flexibility. Teachers have provided work for students to complete on Friday and structured online classes will return from Monday. “For Monday and Tuesday of next week, we will continue our standard distance learning process, hosting classes through the Google classroom,” said Mr. Clift. “I have no doubts that the Victorians and my school community will treat the lockdown with the seriousness it deserves so that we can get out of it quickly.” Brauer College principal Jane Boyle said the school advised students to go home with devices before the end of the school day. Ms Boyle said all VCE assessments scheduled for the next three days have been postponed, including an assessment based on a camp in Falls Creek. “Initially there was a level of excitement because for many students they will see Friday as a holiday. Then they will have to assess the feelings next week,” Ms. Boyle said. “It would be fair to say with the staff and students that there is a level of fatigue from the lockdown.” Hopefully we will get out of this quickly. sure you are up to date with everything going on in the southwest.
