Remote Learning Expectations
Remote learning overview
Sign in to remote learning each morning
Each morning your contact teacher will have set for you a ‘question task’ on your contact/COMPASS Google Classroom that you will need to submit as if you were signing each day for contact.
If you do not submit this to your contact teacher, you will be marked absent from remote learning for that day. This needs to be completed by 10.30am each day.
Your teachers will remind you during the first period to sign in through your Contact/COMPASS Google Classroom each morning.
Monday mornings 9.00–10.30am
During this Monday Compass/planning session you will be expected to undertake three tasks:
- Reply to the check in communication from your contact teacher if you have not done this in the last five days.
- Spend around 25–35 minutes completing the Compass session set for the week.
- Refer to your Google Classroom ‘To do’ list and plan to complete any ongoing work.
Subject Lines A-G
Each teaching line is scheduled twice per week. Each period is allocated 90 minutes. During these times you can expect a combination of the following:
- Video or streamed lessons from your teacher
- Work to be set for you to go on with
- Times when your teacher is available to support you in real time
- Extra-curricular games and activities
Any content that your teacher delivers in a live stream will also be recorded and posted for you to view later. You should let your teacher know if you cannot attend the live version for any reason. Think of this like providing an absence note if you couldn’t attend school.

How to set up my home learning space?
To maximise your learning, it is helpful to set yourself up a designated ‘learning space’. Your ‘learning space’ should be a place where you are able to comfortably and productively complete your school work.
Below are some points on how to set up your ‘learning space’:
- This space should only be for your school work.
- Minimise distractions such as an area with no TV or game console.
- You should pick a space that is quiet, bright and has fresh air.
- Your learning space should have a nice clean area to work in with a desk or table.
- Have somewhere for you to print and see your weekly timetable to help plan each day.
- Make sure you take regular movement and brain breaks.
- Keep water handy; drinking water can improve concentration.
- Contact your teacher if you have any concerns.
The following information is to be used as a guide for online written communication with your teachers and peers during this remote learning period.
1. Be respectful
It is important to remember that your classmates and teachers are real people who are affected by the words you say and write. It is essential to keep in mind the feelings and opinions of others. If you wouldn’t say it to someone’s face, don’t say it online either.
2. Be aware of strong language, all caps, and exclamation points
It is easy for written text to be misread and misunderstood. By being mindful of the language we use, we can identify any confusion before sending messages. Read everything out loud before you send it.
3. Be careful with humour and sarcasm
We love to see your personality shine through in online classes. Many of our teachers are exceptionally funny too. But like Rule #2, make sure that it is clear you are being funny and not being rude. Emoticons and smileys can be helpful when conveying humor or sarcasm so that it is read correctly.
4. Grammar and spelling matter
While texting, textspeak can b gr8 4 ur friends. At school and online we should be keeping it formal.
5. Don’t post or share (even privately) inappropriate material
Enough said there.
6. Be forgiving
Remember that not everyone will know these rules before posting. Try to be understanding of others, it is very different than simply talking to a person face-to-face.
