After getting caught out a few times, I've developed a system to use before my lesson:
- 1: Do a general check of the site to make sure it's not moved or changed since I last used it.
- 2: Try out the activity to check it delivers the LO and how long it takes to complete (and to spot any problem ads).
- 3: Check the website works in school- often the safety filters can block sites unexpectedly. I have to put in a request with my IT dept to unblock specific sites before I need them.
