As with anything, practivce makes perfect. Here are some guidelines for teachers on how to making electronic learning easier to navigate, particularly using Zoom:

Be prepared

  • If you haven’t familiarized yourself with the online platforms chosen by your school then do as many trial runs and practice sessions as you can. Learn to navigate the mute and unmute function for online classes. This can make the biggest difference between a class that children learn from and the chaos and confusion that can occur otherwise. The raise hand feature is also key to ensure less confusion when multiple persons need to ask a question. If you want to ‘test’ your children in a class use the Poll feature in Zoom to generate multiple choice questions that children can answer live.
  • Take a course online on how to use Microsoft Powerpoint to make the delivery of your content more engaging.
  • Plan your lesson ahead and communicate the required materials for class ahead of time so students are not scrambling during class to get them and the parents who may have left their child with someone, provides them with the resources ahead of time.

Explore and Engage

  • Try be interactive with your students so you don’t lose them. Find different ways to communicate the content i.e. youtube videos, demonstrations, songs etc. Incorporate your classroom as much as you can. This may be an opportunity to share even more since the internet is at your disposal e.g. museums have free tours than children can take right from their computers.
