Toowoomba school fires up online learning system
THE Glennie School is one of many Toowoomba facilities preparing its students for online learning as more coronavirus restrictions come into play.
This week, junior, middle and high school students at Glennie were introduced to the new platform, which will facilitate at-home schooling.
"We've had a few early self-isolators, where parents have decided to take their children out and keep them at home, so we started our remote platform," The Glennie School head of junior years Kate Harris said.
"Everyone is excited to see how this will work."
Daily lessons for all year-groups have been prerecorded by teachers and uploaded to the platform, which is accessible via a daily email link.
"We're trying to maintain what (a student's) day looks like, including PE and art, that's all in there too," Ms Harris said.
The school's online system will be rolled out next week, and will run until the school closes for break after Thursday April 2.
