Online Learning Behaviors

Expected Learning Behaviors for Online Learning 

It is key that students use helpful learning behaviors in the  online classroom, as this increases their ability to learn. 

 

Required Learning Behaviors:

• Wear clothing in class that is comfortable, appropriate school wear, this excludes pajamas.
• Eat prior to or after the online class.
• Focus on instruction. TVs, video games, toys, pets etc. are not permitted in class.   
• Keep computer camera on.  This allows the teachers to read student expressions which helps to gauge understanding and engagement.
• Sit or stand during class, but do not run, play, or lie down.
• Type in the chat box only when permitted by the teacher. 
• Mute mic, raise hand, and wait to be called on prior to speaking
.

   

Recommended Learning Behaviors:

• Log in a few minutes early to trouble shoot technology problems.
• Prepare a bin with organized school supplies and a water bottle near learning station.
• Go to the bathroom prior to or after class. 
• Place yourself somewhere with little or no distraction to aid focus.
• Use headphones with a built-in mic if the space is not quiet enough to hear. 
• Participate in all discussions and complete all learning activities. 

 

Progressive Consequences to Encourage Helpful Learning Behaviors:

• Expectations will be reviewed at the beginning of the lesson.   
• A reminder may be given at teacher discretion.
• A warning will be given that presents the student with a Choice.
• A teacher may exit the child from the Google Meet.

o If a student leaves or is exited from the classroom, parents will be notified by telephone that day.  A parent/teacher phone conference will be required prior to the student being admitted to another Google Meet.

o If disruptive learning behaviors continue, a phone/video conference with the parent, teacher, and principal may be required prior to being admitted to another Google Meet class.

 

Parent /Adult instructional support is very helpful to students outside of class time.  However, d uring class time , please encourage your child to direct their academic questions to their teacher . This encourages engagement, increases student independence, and ensures the student is practicing in line with instruction.
