Guidelines for students

 The move to a remote learning environment will be a shift for all community members, regardless of your level of experience and comfort with distance, remote or online learning. Some students thrive on structure and work best with high face to face interaction, while others work well in a self-directed learning environment.

The goal of Appleby’s remote learning plan is to provide students with access to quality learning experiences, to support them in engaging with their immediate world using the resources and connections readily available to them, and to provide engaging lessons that require critical thinking and personal reflection. Appleby students, teachers, parents and leadership all have roles to play to ensure the best learning experience while we are not physically on campus.

  • Establish daily routines for engaging in the learning experiences (using the timetable provided).
  • Identify a comfortable, quiet space in your home where you can work effectively and successfully.
  • Regularly monitor OneNote, MS Teams, email and Canvas (if applicable) to check for announcements from school administration, the school director or teachers.
  • Ensure your weekly reflection  for each course is posted in your class OneNote page by 8:30 p.m. EST (Oakville), Sunday evenings. These reflections will share the progress you made that week and outlines any concerns you have.

  • Complete assignments with integrity and academic honesty, doing your best work.

  • Do your best to meet timelines, commitments, and due dates.

  • Communicate proactively with your teachers if you cannot meet deadlines or require additional support.

  • Collaborate and support your Appleby peers in their learning by communicating positively and appropriately online.

  • Comply with Appleby’s Code of Conduct and Technology Acceptable Use Policy, including expectations for online etiquette and behaviour.

  • Proactively seek out and communicate with other adults, including parents, teachers, advisors and guidance counsellors as needs arise.
