Online Learning with Apps in Year 2
June 25, 2020
Over the online learning period, the Year 2 teachers and students have been making the most of this opportunity to learn using technology online. To stay safe from the virus we have been learning at home using Zoom, Class Dojo and the EPIC! reading app.
To do this we have been using the ‘flipped classroom’ approach. This is where students look at learning videos and then read over worksheets and books. Any questions they have are then helped with by the teacher in the Zoom lesson. This gives all students a chance to problem solve together and realize it’s okay to have questions or not understand part of a lesson as your teachers are happy to help you.
The Year 2 teachers are very impressed with how young students can submit work by themselves using Dojo student app and the student digital portfolios. We are also happy to see our students use technology for education as this is an important skills for the future.
