How To Be Great at Virtual Learning

These tips will help you rise to the challenge of virtual learning. They will help you remember all that you have learnt and build new knowledge and skills during these strange times.


Do this:

Clip 1#1 Be organised

Follow the timetable found on the website to structure your learning at home. This will help you stay focussed and keep learning every day.  PERSEVERANCE will be needed here, some days you might struggle, but keep going!

#2 Be 100% ready

Make sure you have completed all assignments before your lesson, that you attend lessons on time and that you are fully prepared with everything you need in a place so that you can concentrate. In lessons, follow all instructions first time so you are ready to learn!

Clip 2#3 Be 100% responsible

Your teachers will carefully plan your lessons, but the learning will happen in your brain – you need to engage with activities properly.  ASPIRATION matters here!  Set yourself high targets and take ownership of your learning so you can succeed.

#4 Be 100% respectful

Bring your best self to every lesson. Contribute positively to all lessons and show respect to your classmates by being supportive.  LEADERSHIP is having the self-respect to strive for success and to be a positive role model.  We need leaders now more than ever!

Clip 6#5 Be a technical whizz

You’ve grown up with technology and can no doubt use Snapchat/Tiktok and apps I’ve not even heard of quickly and efficiently. An ENQUIRING mind is needed to learn how to use MS Teams and other learning technologies fast.


Don’t do this:

#1 Forget to say hello

Remember, first and foremost, our Academy is a community so make sure you greet your teacher when you join a class – they will be pleased to hear you!

#2 Have no routine

Whilst getting used to a new way of learning, it is important to keep as much stability and structure as possible – stick to a routine. This will help you feel good as you continue to learn every day.

#3 Lack focus

Don’t be unclear about what you need to do and how you should conduct yourself in virtual lessons. If something is not clear, ask.

#4 Fail to prepare

If you haven’t got your resources ready or are distracted by your phone, you will not get the best out of the learning episode. Such behaviours over time would lead you to fall behind.

#5 Forget the rules

If you wouldn’t say it in the classroom, don’t say it on Teams or via email. There are still rules and consequences for breaking them.

#6 Be resistant to change

We are all learning how to learn and teach remotely. Your learning will suffer if you do not get up-to-speed and make excuses for why you can’t learn.
