AIS senior students thank their teachers for Home Based Learning experiences
Term 2 has begun at AIS in a most unique way. The careful planning, hard work and commitment of our School leaders, teachers and support staff have ensured that our students' learning has not been disrupted now that learning is 'home-based'.
Dynamic online learning platforms together with the dedicated AIS Home Learning site, featuring customised pages for the Early Learning Village, the Elementary school and the Secondary school, have provided both students and families with support on communication, resources and wellbeing, ensuring our students continue to engage in meaningful learning opportunities and have the best possible learning experience.
Current families can access our parent / student portal, Connect AIS, HERE. You will need your family login details to access these areas.
The importance of a daily routine to wellbeing and the stability, security, calm and control that routine brings cannot be understated. Now more than ever, the importance of routine is paramount to wellbeing. AIS continues to promote this valuable message through our Home Learning Site which features dedicated pages for each of our sub-schools: the Early Learning Village, the Elementary school and the Secondary school. The AIS Home Learning Site facilitates the continuation of learning and connectedness across our sub-schools.
These can be challenging times for families, but we have some tips to better your child's learning and wellbeing at home. You can watch them online here.
1. GET CREATIVE
AIS Students are free to complete certain activities in their own creative ways, such as posters, apps, videos and presentations.
2. BE POSITIVE
Activities are going to be limited during this time, but it's important for families to focus on what we can do! That mindset will help children get the most out of their learning at this time
3. TAKE A BRAIN BREAK
It is important for all family members to take a breath and sufficient breaks. Try to ensure that you take a proper lunch or, if you can, add some indoor workouts to the mix!
4. CREATE AN EFFECTIVE WORKSPACE
Make sure that students have everything that they need around them before they begin their online classes. It's also helpful to have their workspaces in a part of your home that is readily accessible by parents.
5. LISTEN TO FEEDBACK AND ASK FOR HELP
It's helpful for students to carefully read their teachers' feedback to know what they did well that day and for tips on working towards their next goal. There will always also be opportunities for them to ask their teachers questions during their regular online conferences.
AIS' home learning program is a response to the directive from Singapore's Ministry of Education, Ministry of Health and Committee for Private Education that schools must close for a period of time. This action has been taken to ensure the health and wellbeing of the community.
