What is/are the video conferencing tools to be used for online class?
Our primary tool is Google Meet. Our teachers however may use Microsoft Teams or Zoom tied to our DBTC G Suite Account.
The school will use Google Meet most of the time for two reasons:
- It is free but has no time limit for now
- It is more convenient as the Google apps is part of the Google Suite ecosystem
How frequent will students and teachers meet for mode A?
Generally, we use half-half principle: If the subject matter has two regular meetings in a week, the mode A will have 1 meeting only.
We have two kids in the elementary, grade 2 and grade 3, is it required to have two laptops?
Not required as long as the schedule is manageable. It is recommended that each child will have its own laptop but not required.
