Online Teaching & Learning – Rules and expectations for students When learning online, it is important that you realise all the normal school protocols around respect apply. Behave as if you are physically in class. This means: 1. BE PREPARED: – School day is 9 to 4 – do your work within this time to allow for leisure time afterwards. Keep all communications to staff and other students to this time period as well. – Have a suitable workspace – make sure the background in online classes is suitable. – Make sure your laptop/ device is fully charged and you have all necessary materials. – Make sure you have the assigned work / learning / reading complete and submitted on time. – Eat a snack before your online class & have a bottle of water at hand if you normally do (No eating is allowed). – Use your diary to keep track of the work assigned & the work done. 2.
