Set up a learning space at home

In your home or the place you are staying, you’ll need a space that your child feels comfortable to focus, learn and be in.
You will need a computer, a laptop with a webcam or a Surface device as recommended by ICB. Surface devices will provide you with a better learning experience.

Do you have internet access?

Online learning at home requires the internet, so if you have a weak or limited connection, speak to your teacher about other ways that you can be provided with learning materials.

I don't have a Surface device, what other options do I have?

No problem, you can still use a laptop, desktop computer running Windows 10. You can also use some other tablet devices such iPad as long as Office Apps, Teams and MS Whiteboard are installed. The following steps will assist you in how to install the required Apps and ensure you are ready for online learning.

What if I don't have a computer and the Internet?

Well it's not gooing to as be efficient as participating in online learning, however you can speak to your teacher about other ways that you can be provided with learning materials. Please remember you are investing in your child's learning and future, a worthwhile investment in anyone's eyes!

In the morning, ask your child:
  • What are you learning today?
  • What are your learning targets or goals?
  • How will you be spending your time?
  • What resources do you need?
  • What support do you need?
In the afternoon, ask your child:
  • What did you learn today?
  • What was challenging? You could come up with a way to deal with the same problem if it comes up again.
  • Consider three things that went well today. Why were they good?
  • Are you ok? Do you need to ask your teacher for something? Do you need help with something to make tomorrow more successful?
