shoveling is T_Rexerous
If you don't like the weather just wait 5 min.

Rhonda Leneaugh all by myself at CLC.
becky went home for afternoon. We were together in the office this morning.
the Mobridge group is together.
The presenters information will be added to the Summer Summit webpage on SDALL
Patience is very important. Because many students use their phones, it takes them awhile to zoom in to read text etc...
We were missing out on the written part from students so I have them text me answers to questions and then we work on format and punctuation
Students do much better if the app is introduced prior to showing online. If they see how it works then use it, they are more familiar and willing to try
if you haven't used the platform in person its hard to make the jump to distance learning.
We do a lot more conversation times to practice the English.
If you give prompts and then ask for a response in a shared document you can show the learner their written mistakes.
Cornerstones has some videos on their website that teachers have done to help students started online learning. Some in multiple languages. Look for the distance page
That is awesome!!
Can they write on the google doc using their phone? I'm having a hard time for the ones with the phone
Ok, thank you
I think you have been really clear and just excellent.
It is challenging when they are in an apartment that has shared wifi and can't fully connect. Sometimes they sign on with computer and phone
I agree with Brenda. So far the biggest issue with remote learning has been internet connections for the students. Sometimes they have to reconnect several times. Great idea about recording the lesson.
Great Thank you
What perspective might you share on removing a student from the remote class [due to lack of participation or other factor]?
Many times nonparticipation is a tech issue
I think our biggest challenge is every student seems to have a different preferred method of communicating on-line. Some like Facebook, some text, some email, and a plethora of other methods. To help them be successful we have to learn so many different ways to communicate.
Kim, you are correct.
Many of our students have had technical difficulties with Zoom like not getting their audio or cameras turned on. We've created YouTube videos showing students how to turn on audio and video for different devices (Android vs. iPhones) that we can send to the students via text.
We get groups that come together on different levels in the same room.

Mute and unmute
Students would need to be able to unmute/mute. The instructor might need to know how to mute or unmute students depending on ability of students.
For low level learners, some prompts would be helpful
They could type the question to each other? If audio not working
How to find a place in the location that is quiet and maybe away from other family members
Ask them to test audio and video before they get on
Clear directions, they need to know when it is their turn to talk
Do some practicing before you start
They may need to know how to adjust volume if video isn't a loud
Perhaps have them write the steps/transition words on a piece of paper as part of the practice? Then they'd have it with them in the room
the teacher needs to know how to share computer sound and use breakout rooms
host or leader designated for break out rooms.
You could assign a step to an individual one gets First then one gets Next
Not always possible but having a co-host helps too.
Are you able to see who circles what?
Thanks, Andrea. Very useful content...
Awesome as usual
Thank you Andrea!
