Distance Learning at ELPS
As per the directives of KHDA, our school has extended the Distance Learning Program till the end of the academic year. This is mandatory for all the students enrolled at school, to continue with this mode of education.
During the first two weeks of March, 2020, our teachers had been busy in working out the protocols, compiling the alternate resources and planning for the distance learning period. During the second week, many teachers and classes had been having Trial Lessons to make sure that all the platforms are working and everyone is connected.
All the lessons are delivered using:
Links to videos,
Live Audio/Video sessions; and more
Cyber Safety & Anti Bullying Policy and Distance Learning Programmes guidelines have already been shared by the respective Heads of Sections and /or Form Tutors.
All the students across the school are present on EduPage and will be getting the updates through regular notifications as usual.
Interactive Platforms for Live Sessions:
Following additional platforms are currently being used simultaneously by the teachers and students:
Lessons will be interactive, to make it more dynamic, teachers have connected with students through an audio/visual platform, Microsoft Teams, to conduct live sessions with the students whenever required during the lessons. During such sessions, students can ask questions live and get the answers using the Chat Option.
Moreover, students can ask questions, perform quizzes, and submit assignments, or tasks by posting comments on any of the platforms like EduPage, Google Classroom or Edmodo.
The school timetable is published on EduPage i.e. www.dubai-els.edupage.org.
