Digital Divide...not all students have the ability to learn this way.
retaining students due to technology or lack of
It takes more time to prepare for class
Access and fear of messing up equipment
Helping students gain some consistency and really working to schedule the learning in their day when their are multiple people needing devices in their household
overcame one by using cell and computer for class
Finding ways to build engaging lessons when you're not f2f.
Students' feelings of inadequacy.
Learning the delivery system. Preparing online classes, etc.
I agree with Stephanie about the divide. Personally I had to bring myself up to speed using technology ex. Zoom for a classroom. I am still working on it.
fixing everyone's zoom problems in many languages when I don't even really know the answers in English
motivating students to work outside of class
We weren't prepared, and by the time I learned Google Classroom they were signed up for Essential Ed.
Trying to have the dynamic be other than teacher vs. students without any breakout rooms
I think it is harder to build trust and rapport with the students when you are not able be with them directly.
Communication with ELA's is more difficult as well as it sometimes is a struggle in a face to face classroom
If it knocks the wind out of you.....you will catch your breathe a little later...lol
It is very uncomfortable because you are uncertain of the outcome
Exciting and nerve racking at the same time
A little apprehension.
Scary as all get-out
Fear--although less as I get older. :)
For years we have been telling our students to take a risk and to step out of their comfort zones to attend classes and learn with us. I think it's interesting for us to be on the other side of that equation. We are the ones feeling anxious, frustrated, worried, inadequate. I feel like it's been good for us to be in the place we ask our students to be.
I think it is good for us too.
A little fear of not looking competent.
but when we do it and live....it is great and gratifying
Our students have been very accommodating with me when I goof things up with online learning. They realize that I am trying very hard, but I am still learning, but improving everyday.
It makes me tired.
I have been training for success with this my whole life
I found that it is exhausting because the hours are so odd and the commitment to the students needs to be the same.
At first I was super depressed, but now that I get to see all of their faces on zoom, I feel so much better.
exhausting and somewhat depressing not to be with people
It's been hard to be apart from everyone--students and colleagues--but I also find it pretty exciting. It has opened up new ideas and possibilities for our program.
I missed face to face time with students.
I have adapted, but do miss in person teaching with the students - I have to look to the future and realize that from the tech. aspect it will benefit all of us.
It's a roller coaster, some days I'm positive, other days I'm defeated.
I think it is a mixed blessing....it was very hard for the learners because they were taking on so many challenges within their families. I spent so much time helping people connect with resources.
It has helped focus my energy/momentum towards concrete goals, so that's been nice. I can't do everything, but I can focus on the students who are actively learning
It re-inspires me.
People who live purpose driven lives are able to accomplish more and find fulfillment
I revisit their goals often and try to help them remember what they are working for.
The students like the study challenge if they take it to heart.
Communicating with students remotely is more time consuming, but the students truly appreciate the effort a teacher makes to stay connected with them.
Filling the local coach/mentor role for students in distance ed is an incredibly important piece, Steph. I'm so glad you mentioned it!
I see it as a way to measure progress, as well.
I LIKE focusing on effort. Building self-esteem is a big part of our students' success as they often times do not hear praise.
I know we all have sites or tools they use to keep students engaged or motivated. Does anyone have any sites or tools that have really seemed to motivate students.
I'm working on Flip Grid too I like it
I think easier than Screencastify
Rhonda Leneaugh: At CLCBH we started back with working , very slowly and yesterday and yesterday we have fifteen students come in to the day classes. We work with students one on one. It is working very well. In the fall we will see about getting back to possibly doing very small classes.
Great comment KIM! I think you are right on.
