Most of us have begun to feel the physical and emotional stress of the current situation and this is a topic that we urgently need to address. This webinar draws attention to the importance of preparing yourself physically, emotionally and practically for the challenges of remote teaching. Specifically, we’ll be talking about what “self-care” is and why it’s so important for educators. There are also some very practical tips for staying healthy, organized and productive so you can give your best to your students.

We have long known that parental engagement is directly linked to student achievement and with the recent shift to online classes, building a strong partnership with parents and caregivers has become more important than ever. In this unit, we’ll be exploring this idea of “school community” and looking at a range of ways to enrich communication with families, involve them and ultimately engage them as partners in this remote learning process.

In this webinar, you will be taken through the steps for planning and delivering engaging and effective synchronous lessons for 6-8 year old learners. This practical session will look at the advantages and challenges, guiding principles and provide plenty of ideas to engage and motivate children online.
