you may have heard from the State Premier this morning, Queensland
schools will remain open until the end of this term or until the expert
medical advice changes. The Premier also restated that parents have the
choice to either keep their students at home during this time or send
them to school if they are healthy.
In order to support those students who will not be attending school, a range of remote learning solutions have been developed for students in Year 10 at Bremer SHS. This includes:
An e-learning platform that contains classroom content delivered
through online courses. Students can access their Blackboard courses
through The Learning Place using their student logon and password. The site can be accessed at: https://elearn.eq.edu.au
A digital notebook that supports multi-user collaboration. OneNote is
part of Microsoft’s Office 365 Education suite, which is free for
students to access online. This application can be downloaded along with
the other Office 365 applications from http://office.com
A web-based email and calendar service from Microsoft. Students have
access to Outlook 365 through EQ’s Managed Internet Service, which can
be accessed using their student logon at: http://owa.eq.edu.au
Printed hard copies:
In the event that students do not have access to online resources
during this time, the school has printed a range of curriculum support
booklets, featuring a fortnight’s worth of work for English, Maths and
Science. These booklets will be available to collect from the school
be aware that each department is handling the delivery of their class
content differently. Where some are using Blackboard, others are
creating OneNote class notebooks or emailing work home through Outlook.
Whatever the delivery method, it is important that students are
frequently checking their student email accounts to see what work or
messages are being sent to them.
If you have any questions or concerns about these processes, please feel free to email me or contact the school on 3810 9333.
