Tools and Opportunities for Distance Learning in Schools

At a time when educators need to provide distance learning for students, it has been observed that they have a marked lack of knowledge:

  • How to organize work with software tools available at school;
  • How to organize remote lessons;
  • How to build communication and feedback with students;
  • How to give advice if children fail to do the task.

Even if schools have access to free tools such as Office 365 ans Microsoft Teams, they are not used and often no other alternatives are found.

Often each teacher experiments with a variety of tools at their own discretion, so students do not develop a simple, unified and understandable learning process in unusual circumstances.

During the emergency situation, Datorzinību centrs has already trained more than 200 educators on the use of Microsoft Teams Education for schools, providing an opportunity to understand and learn how to organize distance learning in practice. Given the high demand for such teacher training and the fact that many schools have not yet been able to support their teachers with such training, Datorzinību centrs offers:

Microsoft Teams training for educators, including these topics:

 

  • Microsoft Teams environment features, characteristics and basics;;
  • How class groups are made;
  • Learning environment in lesson work;
  • The use of Task section;
  • Conducting distance learning;
  • Possibilities of creating a feedback.
