When we meet families joining us at Ararira Springs we talk about a parents role as the first teachers of their children and how we want to embrace the fact that learning happens anywhere, anytime, and anyplace.
We wanted to provide the opportunity for you to capture that learning and share it with others and us. In Linc-Ed we have created a ‘Learning@Home’ page. This name might not be quite right but can be changed at any time. The essence remains the same. In this pandemic environment where learning may return to being at home if faced with self-isolation or being a close contact. Then the use of posting on this page is a timely reminder.
This will be the perfect place to share the learning that might happen at home. Children in Year 5-8 may have other mechanisms to share learning. In addition to learning at home during a pandemic, this is a great place to share other kids of learning. You could use it as a place for you or your child to record adventures on holiday, in the bush, on a mountain, or via the arts. Use it to celebrate your child reaching a milestone or goal. It could be a place to share sporting achievements or success in other domains.
- Log on to your Linc Ed Account
- Choose the child you wish to make the post for (if you have more than one)
- Click the Learning@Home button
- Start writing in the ‘share something’ box
- Drag and drop any photos you might have
- You can include links to video or other places, e.g. blogs you have elsewhere
If you need support with this at all, please don’t hesitate to ask either at the office or make a time with your child’s teacher.
We look forward to reading the learning stories you share.
P.S. I have my children’s permission to use these images!
