The King’s College & Prep School teachers think outside the box for remote learning
The teachers at The King’s College & Preparatory School have had to think outside the box and facilitate learning in fascinating and different ways. They have created captivating presentations and videos to teach a wide range of skills from spelling, to multiplication, to direct/ indirect speech, to vocabulary in isiZulu and Afrikaans to fractions with different denominators.
Some teachers have made use of interactive choice boards to consolidate learning experiences. This allows the learners to choose the activities they want to complete so that they still have a voice and choice in their learning during this time.
This has worked well in the Foundation phase and in some Social Science lessons in the Intermediate phase.

Some of the teachers have also explored the world of Bitmojis- creating Bitmojis to interact with their learners and creating interactive Bitmoji classrooms. The enjoyable part of a Bimoji classroom is tapping on the objects and seeing what they are linked to and then learning something new.
In Grade 6, English and IT collaborated to teach the learners design skills using Canva in order to design a travel advert for tourism post lock down. The learners gave feedback, reporting how much fun they had learning new design skills and how to use Canva to make their designs come to life.
