Why you should try this approach
Reduces teacher workload
A teacher will be teaching pupils in school and those at home the same thing at the same time. You may only use this approach for 1 lesson each day, but that's still 1 hour where your teaching staff are able to streamline work.
Promotes pupil engagement
It allows pupils at home to still feel connected to their class and teacher by being able to:
- Interact with their teacher during lessons
- Hear instructions as well as reading them on the set work
- Ask questions directly to their teacher
Takes away some of the burden on parents
Most pupils will be able to use the technology independently from their parents.
