We have developed a Connected Learning strategy to ensure your child continues to receive the best possible education in response to the circumstances brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic. We have the opportunity to utilise online tools for communication and educational delivery through our strong ICT network and established systems.
By following our connected learning plan, your child will have access to subject content and teacher instructions for each of their curriculum subjects every day. Our main platforms for remote learning are:
Your child should access their learning area website for content for each of their daily lessons. Aveley Secondary College Landing Page: https://sites.google.com/aveleysc.wa.edu.au/home/home
Your child is enrolled in a google classroom for each subject. Google Classroom should be used by your child as a communications tool to check in with their teachers each lesson. Google Classroom will also be utilised to distribute individual classwork and assessments and should be checked regularly in conjunction with Google Sites. www.classroom.google.com
Instructions for Accessing Platforms
Students will follow their normal timetable to minimise further disruption and to maximise learning outcomes during the connected learning period. Classroom teachers will advise students of audio/visual online class sessions as well as independent practice lessons, ensuring they are available to respond to questions and support students during their scheduled class time. A copy of your child’s timetables can be requested from Aveley.firstname.lastname@example.org
Our Connected Learning infographic outlines our expectations for effective online learning.
Connected Learning FAQs
Is my child still expected to wear school uniform at home?
No, students are not required to wear the College uniform during this time – however, students must wear appropriate clothing during the school day. The normal expectations and standards as per the Student Code of Conduct apply.
How do I let the College know if my child is unwell or unable to participate in the connected learning program?
Absences can be communicated to the College through email Aveley.email@example.com or text 0439 695 467
How will my child know if their teacher is absent?
Absences will be communicated to students and parents via email to let them know that the Video Call will be cancelled. Teachers will still provide learning materials and instructions for the lesson as per usual.
Will my child still complete regular assessments?
Students may be required to complete assessments online. Some assessments might be altered to suit online learning. We will take the circumstances into account.
What do I do if my child has a technical problem?
Please report technical problems to Aveley.firstname.lastname@example.org Please outline the technical problem and include screenshots if applicable.
What if I have a poor internet connection?
Your home internet connection cannot be improved by the College but a few items that may help are:
- Improve your bandwidth by reducing the usage of other services during class time (i.e. Netflix, Spotify, YouTube etc).
- Contact your internet provider to increase your plan speed.
- Turn off video during Video Call and use audio only.
What does the school expect of the carer or parent?
We ask you to be a partner in troubleshooting problems but we do not expect you to be a teacher. We will all need to be patient as we develop skills in online learning.
When does my child have their breaks?
There are start and finish times for lessons. Teachers will provide structure and break times as appropriate. Normal break times for Lunch 1 and 2 will still apply as per their timetable.
