Teaching remotely is a big change for most teachers and students. Although terms like ‘flipped learning’ and ‘independent learning’ aren’t new, we are all very aware how the recent school closures are taking those concepts to new heights.
With this in mind, I thought it would be helpful to draw your attention to some new popular resources and online tools; some you may have used before, and some that now come with a new spin.
Cambridge Assessment International Education (Cambridge International) have a new section on their website all about teaching and learning when schools are closed. Some of their advice is specific to Cambridge International, but most of it is applicable to any subject, and any exam board. They have written resources and webinars too and will add more webinars in the coming weeks.
The June 2019 papers for AS and A Level Law are available on Interchange, along with exemplars and examiners’ reports that you can download and email to your students.
We’ve added a new page to our website all about how students can use past papers to help them learn – you could send students the link or print off the page and post it to them, along with hard copies of the papers.
Hodder have a page on their website dedicated to supporting schools. They already offer e-textbook versions of the Law textbooks and are now offering half-price, e-textbook versions of the Law revision guide. These books contain questions and mini quizzes that students can use to create mini presentations and work through elements of the course themselves. The Hodder revision guide also has answers online, including exemplars.
Online there’s lots of video content available, including some revision channels on YouTube. Here are two that focus on A Level Law, which your students may find interesting.
Being away from friends or family members for long periods of time can be a challenging experience for anyone. It’s important that teachers and students keep in touch as often as possible. I hope that the resources I’ve shared go some way to help anyone teaching and learning away from their classroom.
Education Support has a free, confidential help line, if you feel like you need to talk to someone in confidence.
