    TIPS FOR SUCCESSFUL REMOTE LEARNING

    • Make sure your iPad Notifications for Google Classroom are turned ON.
    • Log on to Google Classroom every day. Pay attention to any LIVE meetings you have that day, so you can plan to be there.
    • For independent work lessons- Complete/watch the entire lesson BEFORE doing the assignment for that lesson. 
    • Some indpendently paced lessons require students to watch a video in Slides. They need to click the arrow for "Present" mode in Slides for this to work. Watch this quick video that explains what to do! Click Here
    • Students can see their "graded" work on Google Classroom, and there is often feedback from their teachers in the comments.

    ROUTINES

    For each lesson day, my class should visit Google Classroom and follow this routine:

    1. Check the "Stream" for announcements in homeroom. This shows important announcements, schedules, and reminders.
    2. Check the "Upcoming" assignments box in each class. This shows what is due. 
    3. Attend any live Zoom/GoogleMeet meetings on time. 
    4. Check the "Classwork" tab to see your assignments in each class.
    5. Complete independent work for each class. Turn in work. 
    6. Check graded work and make corrections if needed. 

       

      Troubleshooting the iPad:

      While many of the apps and websites we use are experiencing some difficulties due to the huge influx of users, there are times when the issue is with the iPad. Here are some things to try if these issues occur. 

      1. Close all of the open apps. Too many open apps can lead to lagging and things not working. 
      2. Make sure the iPad is charged. When they get really low on battery they sometimes act up.
      3. If it is a video, give it a little extra time to load. (It sounds like videos are buffering for a long time.)
      4. Restart the iPad. This often helps. 
      5. If the site utilizes a Google login, the user may need to sign out of Google and then login again. Even if it appears the user is already logged in, Google’s security measures have logged the user out.
      6. Try using Chrome vs Safari. You can log on to otus.comon either Chrome or Safari, and some have said Chrome was working better.
      7. Close all the tabs on the internet except the one you are currently using. Some students have MANY many tabs open, and it might be slowing it all down.
      8. Clear the history and the cache. It’s kind of like cleaning out a backpack. Sometimes there is so much stuff in the backpack , it needs to be completely cleaned out. 
        1. Safari – on the iPad, go to Settings/Safari/Clear History and Website Data. 
        2. Google Chrome – In the upper right corner of the browser page, there are three dots. Click on the three dots. Click on History and Clear Browsing Data. 

      I hope this helps!
