In partnership with Manitoba Education, representatives from metro, rural, and northern divisions have come together to oversee the design and implementation of a provincial strategy for school leaders, teachers, students, and families.
The Manitoba Remote Learning Support Centre portal includes:
A framework outlining foundational beliefs and guiding principles to help build common understandings and support the implementation of evidence-based practices for online learning and teaching. Included in this framework are practical strategies for establishing a sense of belonging and community in an online environment, and for increasing student and teacher efficacy for online learning as well as students’ ability to be independent, self-regulated learners.
A provincial repository of a growing collection of on-demand, accessible English/French learning resources. The collection is being built by Manitoba teachers for teachers supporting learning at home. The repository consists of independent inquiry/project-based learning experiences that address learning outcomes for Kindergarten to Grade 8 students and evidence-based, high-yield teaching strategies/practices, tools, and resources to support student engagement and accelerate student learning.
Professional learning (English/French) supports for teachers that focus on pedagogy and promising practices for the implementation of remote learning, various implementation models and high-yield strategies for teachers supporting students in both online and low/no tech learning environments, as well as how-to videos on using technology platforms.
Remote learning for Kindergarten to Grade 8 students who are learning at home due to COVID-19. The Manitoba Remote Learning Support Centre teachers will offer English and French Immersion remote learning for students in Kindergarten to Grade 8. The teachers will provide synchronous and asynchronous learning, as outlined in the Manitoba Education Standards for Remote Learning. Remote learning will be available to students who are immunocompromised or who reside with an immunocompromised family member. The Kindergarten to Grade 8 program will be available to June 2023.
An update for the 2023-24 school year.
Remote learning allows learners to access courses of study even if they are in different physical locations. This approach offers program flexibility and ensures equitable access to diverse learning opportunities, while respecting local community decisions regarding program implementation. Manitoba Education and Early Childhood Learning provides high-quality remote learning options that cater to the unique needs of students, schools, and school divisions, thus supporting flexibility and increased educational opportunities for learners in Manitoba, regardless of where they are located.
At the high school level, two specific remote learning options are available:
InformNet (Grades 9-12) offers English and French Immersion courses through online synchronous learning or blended learning experiences. Contact Information: 204-831-4000, email at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit the website InformNet.
Teacher Mediated Option (Grades 9-12), provides English courses through synchronous learning experiences that can be accessed online or by telephone. Contact Information: 204-385-6697, email at email@example.com, or visit Teacher Mediated Option.
