An in a nutshell course - Planning a learning curriculum that will translate between home schooling and the classroom

A blended approach to learning for many is a reality now and will continue for some time to come. Planning how to use the intended curriculum to support all learners whether they are working from home or are able to work with the teacher in the classroom is a challenge. OFSTED and other inspectorate bodies internationally are aware that some learning may be lost as a result of a prolonged absence from school for all learners wherever they are.  This one-hour nutshell looks at how to look positively at the learning that has taken place and that continues for learners who have to work from home.  We look at ways to create opportunities for learners to use the environment around them to continue to learn when away from school. We also identify some of the skills that learners must develop to support self-study and independent learning. We also look at some of the recommended approaches to blended learning where the teacher can plan a suite of learning that can be delivered in school or away from school and provide for the learner clear objectives for both.

The course content is as follows:-

  • A review of some of the strategies that can support learners to make the transition from home schooling to the classroom
  • Considering the importance of the concepts that underpin core and subject specific learning and how identifying these for learners in relation to their immediate experience and environment
  • A look at some of the skills that will support learners to dovetail their learning between home and school
  • A focus on some of the recommended approaches for using blended learning where the teacher can build a strategy that ensures the intended curriculum is implemented successfully

The webinar will include video presentations, proformas for discussion and planning, card templates for an activity that can be used with staff again and again, some research documents that can be downloaded for future reading to inform change or strengthen the decision-making process and presentation slides with a voice over and transcript.

This is part of a growing suite of nutshell courses we are planning. CPD is an essential part of school life and these webinars provide a flexible alternative to face to face training which can be difficult to timetable.  We are running a suite of live webinars as 2½ hour morning or twilight sessions where the trainer is live using an online platform.  These are proving very popular but for some the flexibility of these nutshells may be more accessible.

Who is this nutshell course for?

All staff in a school will benefit from understanding how to look at positive learning that can come from a blended or online delivered curriculum.  More specifically, those with a learner facing role can gain a great deal from looking at some of the tips and ideas that this course will highlight.  The imperative is to ensure that all those who have to work in this blended way can create a culture that fosters deep learning and a desire to want to continue to progress and enjoy the opportunities that this approach can offer,
