The recent DES circular on re-opening schools in September 2020 makes particular reference to the wellbeing of students and staff during the
current Covid-19 crisis (Circular 41/2020).
In this 2 hour online session, a Tara 365 Learning coach will lead a team discussion through the online challenges which you are now facing and explore possible responses to the current situation, which will ensure that your school remains focused on the wellbeing of your students and staff as we enter the next phase of schooling during this crisis situation.
The range of digital supports available to your school through the ‘Microsoft 365’ and ‘Teams’ package will be discussed and will include areas such as organizing Year Group assemblies, data gathering on student engagement, Teams meetings, using Microsoft Bookings, Child Protection online, communication and collaboration online, using Teams to support wellbeing in your school etc.
We provide an online 12 hour course for teachers over 6 sessions to highlight best practice for the school in delivering hybrid / distance learning. (Up to 50 staff with 2 trainers delivering the content).
This course will outline best practice methodologies for distance learning in content delivery, assessment and student welfare using Microsoft 365 applications. (OneDrive, Teams, Teams Meeting, Teams Assessment, SharePoint, OneNote, Forms, Stream, PowerPoint, Immersive Reader, Whiteboard and Sway)
The Department of Education and Skills has recommended that schools: ‘use the School Self-Evaluation (SSE) process to help them address the challenges that will arise from the opening of schools .(Circular 41/2020).
Tara 365 Learning has developed a Blended Learning School Self-Evaluation Toolkit which will support schools when they review their own Blended Learning experience since March 2020, and which will help schools to develop a clear and sustainable pathway for teaching and learning in their school from September 2020 and beyond.
Tara 365 will provide your school with the services of an experienced education coach who will engage with senior and middle leadership teams and support the school in developing its own robust self-evaluation of how levels of teaching and learning were maintained during the first phase of remote, blended learning from March – June 2020.
The school will then be encouraged to reflect on how this experience could form the basis of their planning for teaching and learning in the new school year. A range of self-evaluation and planning tools will be explored and customized for each particular school context, including tools which will support surveys and data gathering, the choice of priority target areas and themes, and the benefits of focus group meetings. Our experienced coach will work directly with your SSE team and will share the experiences from international evaluation models and national best practice in this area to the self-evaluation process in your school.
This service includes 5 x one hour coaching sessions, support in applying the DES School Self-Evaluation model and process to a review of the school’s Blended Learning experience, support in developing data gathering instruments, analysis, planning and reporting to stakeholders.
