Aotea College - Overview of online learning
Apr 15, 2020

Kia ora e te whānau,

We hope you have enjoyed the holiday and that your whānau is ready for term 2 beginning today.

Aotea College - Overview of online learning

To make online learning easier to manage students will have 2-3 online tutorials per day. Each subject has two sessions per week and these will run when that class is on period 2,4 or 5.

During this time there is a real-time connection with their teacher and classmates and they are expected to be there. Teachers will email students the invitations or details for what will happen at this time.

Students will also have independent learning to complete at other times. Again their teacher will provide this work through email, workspace or classroom.

The overview of online learning contains the online timetable, the expectations for online learning and the topics, with links to the resources for each subject.

Learning Support

Teacher aides will be available if your child needs help with their learning. The student should please email the teacher aide who works in their class or invite them to an online meeting if they need extra help.

Students with special assessment conditions (SAC)

If you child normally uses a reader/writer, they still have to be able to access that entitlement. If they are working on an assessment, they should talk about this with their teacher. There are online tools available for use and now might be a really good chance to try one or two of them. If they need help with these tools, please email Ms McBride ( or one of the teacher aides they have worked with. If none of these work they will need to wait until they are back at school.

Te Kura students

All Te Kura students should make sure they are keeping up with online work and regularly submitting work. By now they should have started on the assessment. If this has not happened, make sure you contact your Te Kura teacher to ask for advice. Any problems, questions or queries, please email Sarah McBride (
