Live online lessons, also called Live Events will be scheduled by some curriculum areas through Teams. These are lessons where students will be invited to participate live with their teachers and complete work as if they are in an actual lesson. To participate students will be sent a link the their school email by their teacher or another member of that department along with instructions of how to participate and a Class Note Book. At the time of the event (as per the timetable) simply click on the link to attend. In addition to the live events there will be some Live Communication slots where teachers will be online and can immediately respond to emails. This doesn’t mean students can’t email them at any other time-it just means they will definitely be online at that time

Will my teacher be able to see me and hear me? Will I be able to see other people in my class?

Can I ask questions during the live online lesson?
Yes, you will be able to ask questions by typing in the question and answer box. Your teacher will be able to see your question and then answer during the lesson.
