Teaching students remotely allows them to have access to all of the resources of a home, including family members and pets.
That way it allows them to take the sort of data that can be found in the classroom, using passing time to make up for the number of students.
For example, while a class of year 2 students could collect data on what everyone in the class had for lunch one day, giving 25 points of data, students at home could collect it over a few days.
Students having access to all of their toys allows them to sort them based on different attributes.
And while they are learning online, they will be able to use software like Microsoft Excel, Microsoft PowerPoint or a variety of apps on an iPad. This will allow them to display their data, and share it with the teacher and classmates.
