Learnline: Education over the internet
Centralian Senior College has partnered with Charles Darwin University to share the use of their online learning management system called Learnline.
It’s a closed, safe environment that is password protected, where our students will have the chance to do some class activities electronically.
Students will still have teachers who they see regularly for lessons, but some lessons may include independent activities set by the teacher through Learnline.
Learnline also gives students a way of getting assignment sheets, class information, resources or watch class videos again anytime they need to as long as they have access to the internet- even from home or anywhere else in the world.
Students can also download resources at school to use offline at home.
Students might also participate in live online classes through Collaborate, where they will have online classes with students in their physical class or with students from other schools doing the same subject from their home school.
Many universities and other training organisations and workplaces use similar ways to help their students and workers learn. We want our students to be ready for the next stage in their learning and so we are encouraging students to make use of this resource.
If you have any questions about how this will work for your family, please contact email@example.com
Dear parents & community members,
Our 2018 school year has had a busy start. Thanks to all members of the College community for your support of our recent Whole School Professional Development Day. Staff worked with visiting Senior Years Team curriculum officers to ensure their learning plans and associated assessment tasks supported students to optimise their achievement in Stage 2 / Year 12 courses. Professional learning from this day will flow through to Year 10 and Stage 1 courses.
Students have been reminded of our heading towards young adult behaviours in allowing students to bring mobile phones to College and only use them during recess and lunch break times. During class time, College expectations are that mobile phones are to be away and on silent during class / lesson / learning time, including change of lesson, unless the classroom teacher has given specific instruction to utilise student phones during learning activities.
Work Completion Reports for all students are being posted home with this newsletter. These reports show whether students are up to date with completion and submission of their work and the standard achieved. Please discuss these with your child and contact your child’s mentor or subject teacher if you have any queries. Mentors are discussing these work completion reports with students, in their role of monitoring academic progress.
