Online Learning Planner – DX Task

I feel fairly comfortable with the idea of transitioning to online or blended learning throughout the year. Communication was great with my team and cooperating effectively provided me with more time to develop engaging and authentic lessons. If we were to do online learning again, I have a much stronger vision of how I would like to set up my classrooms, including establishing use of various websites for learning activities early on, and setting clearer initial expectations regarding online communication over both zoom and in written form.

Classroom management is a strength of mine, and Collaborate was a strength of our 7 Hums Team. I also think that I give clear instructions and task expectations in an online context. I would like to develop my record keeping of student progress and feedback received so that I can apply more targeted differentiation and personalised learning throughout online learning. I would also like to further develop the concept of Care in an online environment in the context of students who are not very responsive or engaged, as the responsibility to follow up with the student and provide further support was often passed on to counsellors. I am feeling very lucky that I will be in the classroom at the beginning of this year to build strong positive relationships amongst my students. I feel that having these relationships already developed is integral to effective online learning and to providing my students with a sense of safety and care if they return to online learning.


Welcome to your Professional Learning Blog! This is a place for you to post your goals, and reflect on them throughout the year.

  • Decide on your goal, perhaps in consultation with your colleagues or principal, and create a post to share with this online professional learning community that you are now a part of! Categorise this post in Goal Setting. Set your goal by considering:
    • Self-assessment and reflection based on new teacher standards  (Tripod 7Cs)
    • Previous or new observation data from peers and principals
    • Student surveys (online surveys developed and aligned with 7C’s)
  • Identify colleagues, coaches, principals etc. that will play a supporting role in achieving your goal, and invite them to view and comment on your post. Encourage them to bookmark your blog and visit regularly.
  • Throughout the year, collect and share evidence to support your progress. Categorise these posts in Reflection.
  • Encourage your colleagues to share your learning journey by engaging with your blog. In return, engage with their blog (and others across the School)
  • You may also like to share work that your students have created or your own professional achievements that may not be directly related to your goal setting. This is encouraged! Categorise these posts as Showcase.

If you need support using this platform, please don’t hesitate to contact Ed Tech, we are always happy to be of assistance!
