On March 25th, I was introduced to Microsoft Teams and here I am 6 weeks later and I am a part of 70 teams, 68 of which I am co-owners with teachers so I have access to monitor the progress of our staff and students. As a VP, my principal and I are working on time-tabling for next year. A day in the life these days contains multiple e-mails, and 2-3 Teams meetings with various staff members, as well as “chats” and “calls” answering numerous questions about our new online learning environment. Hours are invested in a program called aSc Timetables which we use to schedule our classes and teachers. This year has proven to be extra-challenging seeing as we can’t hold in-person course selection meetings, so I have been busy creating narrated power-points that we e-mail to our students and their parents. I then contact our school social media head, to post announcements on Facebook and Instagram to remind kids and their parents to check their e-mail. We held a follow-up Teams meeting with students that parents were welcome to attend, and it felt like dead air. However, we received lots of e-mails and messages later. Parents are appreciative and patient with our new reality. It is going to take time to get our community accustomed to these new forms of communication. We’ve also used Googleforms to create a course selection sheet to replace our paper forms. We often have to go back to an old-fashioned telephone call for reminders, teaching, and troubleshooting with staff, students, and their parents. It has been a lot of work getting this process online, but we are finding that this is a great tool, we will be able to use in the future. The silver lining to our new situation is the technological update we have needed.
