Strategies for Tauira/Students

Reaching Out

Which of your classmates can you ask or discuss this with online?

  • If you are getting frustrated even after refining their search try encouraging a new approach such as online collaboration
  • Try digital tools designed for collaboration. Your classmates are often online in the afternoons and evenings doing school learning
  • Find out from your teacher which programmes or apps they use and which ones the school recommends

Online Classroom

What other lessons can you review from your class site? Did you do this learning in previous years?

  • Your personal learning folders and blogs are important portfolios of your learning.  Teachers take time to ensure that you have reference notes, worksheets and links to digital resources that explain and provide examples of your learning.
  • Sometimes, you just need prompting to go back to these resources when you are stuck!

Read for Enjoyment
