In support of students’ digital needs, the National Library and Information System Authority’s (NALIS) Educational Library Services Division (ELSD) will continue its Navigating Online Learning Series from July 19 to August 26.
Through informative and interactive sessions using the Zoom platform, the July/August series will focus on improving students’ digital competencies and increasing their comfort levels in navigating the online learning environment. The first Navigating Online Learning Series, which began on June 1, focussed on assisting students in developing their research skills and navigating the online environment.
“Succeeding in the Online Environment;” “Introduction to Google Classroom;” “Microsoft Teams, Zoom and Edmodo”; “Introduction to Microsoft Office (Word, PowerPoint)”, “Email Essentials and Etiquette” are some of the topics for the students transitioning from primary to secondary school. Older secondary school students may also participate in these sessions.
There will also be sessions tailored to primary school students and their parents. They will learn how to safely use the internet (creating strong passwords, netiquette, protecting private information online, using privacy settings; respecting others’ privacy and cyberbully) and locating resources like e-books and e-resources on the NALIS’ website.
Parents who are interested in joining the sessions are invited to email ELSD.Outreach@nalis.gov.tt to register.
