Advice for parents

The most important way that parents can assist their students during this time is to help set the right environment for study. This can be done by:

1. Check the class list of all work that is due for each subject or class. 

2. Work with your child to set a timetable for their study which includes breaks and stipulates which subjects will be completed during each session.

3. Your child work in a common space and remove items that may cause distraction. Students require their laptop or iPad to complete work, so it is necessary to regularly monitor your child's progress.

4. Discuss the work completed with your child and compare against the class list.

5. If it is clear that your child is having difficulty completing the work due to technological, language or any reason, please contact the teacher. There are EAL and Learning Support specialists available to assist. Students and parents can also contact their homeroom teachers or relevant coordinators.

CAIS students are in different geographical locations and time zones. To facilitate this Online learning occurs in two main categories. 

SYNCHRONOUS

Students and teachers  occupy the same digital space and interact live, at the same time.

For example;

Students  participate in a live video session hosted by the subject teacher.

Students participating in a live,  online discussion being moderated by the teacher 

Students collaborate through video on groups on work

ASYNCHRONOUS

For example;

Students contribute to an online discussion forum with written comments
