Schools - share teaching resources

We should have shared resources across the country.

For example, S4 Maths teachers could share their teaching materials with other teachers so that we are able to provide more effective, online learning to help all the children.

If a school doesn't need any then great, they can share with others.

Why the contribution is important

It would allow for more volume of teaching to be done virtually whilst we are managing the reduced school capacity.

    Am I missing something ? Schools have maths teachers who should continue to do their job and adapt to the circumstances as they already do when they meet diverse learning needs in a classroom.

    If the schools are going to be out for a long period we need some sort of online live teaching. In some households we don't have the luxury to have time to sit with our children to help them thru school work as we have to WORK. They have to do it all themselves but they are too young to be constant and efficient. They need a LIVE lead from a proper teacher!

    Allow pupils who do not have the correct technology at home access to school computers and books

    I think libraries would be one of the earlier locations to open as part of the bubble interaction. It would provide internet access and support mixed types of schooling and provide a re entry into socialising in a safe environment, with social distancing rules and face masks...

    Unfortunately not all students have internet in their homes sometimes due to poverty, so how do we rectify this situation?
    Another concern is that even with internet, how do we ensure our learners are taking part?
    Internet teaching will never compare to being in a class with your peers and educator.
    Levels! you can have nat4, nat5 and higher all in the same class . Normally this is fine as the differentiation comes from the educator.
    The whole structure will need reviewed and simplified. Possible review of broad general education. Maybe cut the curriculum back to basics. This may allow lessons to continue on a staggered system. This may also safe guard staff also as they could attend in rota while still working from home the other days reaching students via internet

    Many councils already make use of shared resources across their school estates. However, blindly sharing resources doesn't necessarily help, I have previously been involved in resource sharing of science materials in Edinburgh. It is very time intensive to correctly categorise these and put them into a useable format and it is often more time consuming to look for another teachers resources than it is to prepare your own, especially within the CfE framework where all schools and teachers approach subject teaching in very different ways.
