Parent Introduction to Specialists - Shared screen with speaker view
how will attendance be used if kids are checked in in the morning with their teacher?
We will be monitoring participation. There is not a “roll call” or anything like that. Our goal is learn who need support and reach out. Feel free to reach out to us as well.
Is the attendance only during sync?
For my child, there is no box to enter a response. we tried to do so earlier today.
FYI - microphone didn't work for kids issued iPads. Not supported through Safari (Only Chrome or Firedox).
IPads have no microphone option for Kinders (at least in our situation this morning)
our microphone didn’t work for us either. we submitted a video in the comments section.
So, attendance will be determined by Zoom attendance and assignment submission?
I have twin kindergarteners - do they then need to watch individually on their own devices?
our plan would be to have our children do the specialist lessons without our support aside from directing where to click: is that realistic...or will we need to provide more support
Is the classroom teacher communicating the live schedule or will we get Schoology notifications?
But the assignments can be submitted anytime before the next assignment?
choosing our browser is not an option for NSD-district issued devices
If kids are working in pods (with another family) do they need to log in on their own device or can they watch live zooms together on one device and still be counted for attendance?
this is helpful! thank you!
Even google chrome is having issues. My 2nd grader today had distortion with sound almost for 70% of the class. often she was seeing message chrome is running with high cpu usage. no apps running in the background other than zoom class.
makes sense - thank you
Please talk to Jennie Gardino about the browser/microphone issue. My 1st grader on an NSD-issued device doesn't have an option beyond Safari for browsers
what about attendance if attending together
If we have questions later, who should we reach out to and what is their contact information?
Gavin T Doyle
NSD Tech Helpline at 425-408-7669. Hours are 8-4.
chrome is available on NSD iPads. if you have a self service icon on the iPad you should find it there if it is not an icon on the iPad already
I heard PE/Music live one day & asynchronous the next day (or swapped) - but then I'm also hearing additional assignments on a third day.Is that correct, or is the asynchronous the assignments?
is a grade having music the same time as PE only different day similar to when in school?
How long is each lesson?
30 minute zoom lessons
Are live lessons combined classes or single classes?
If we have questions around schedule, attendance, submitting assignments, missing class, etc. (non-tech), what is the best way to reach out to the speciality teachers? Via email? Through Schoology? Should we direct questions to their teacher and have them refer us out?
I really appreciate all of your effort to get our school year started. My concern is the amount of screen time our children will have. We are a very active family and spend quite a bit of time doing hockey, swimming, tennis... will learning be all online? Can we have information on whatever activity to print out and then take the kids outside ourselves?
Gavin T Doyle
So--sorry--one more time. 30-min music on Monday, 30-min PE on Thursday (or vice versa). Then every other week is library (or either Monday or Thursday). Then an asynchronous lesson for EACH one each week?
I really appreciate the effort you are putting into educating our students remotely. I am also grateful for the time dedicated to guiding us parents along. Thank you.
