Some days are better than others. I forgot to screen share the other day and did our whole morning warm up with no video on. So it was just me dancing and singing our warm up song all by myself... I was so embarrassed but the kids lived it so whatever!

funny

Some classes are better than others, but generally, I feel so all alone. Sometimes I feel like a DJ with no one listening.

I feel like I’m doing a good job, but when I teach on my feet during face-to-face my lectures are more theatrical.

Me too! I find it hard not to move now with in person...I don’t want to get in personal bubbles, even though we are masked.

I just read an article that suggests you try to teach on Zoom while standing up (how you normally would in a classroom). Also move your laptop away so you are standing a few feet back and they can see more of your body language. They said that’s how YouTubers do it for viewership.

No. I just keep to light.

I use it more as a question and answer, get to know each other time.

Yesterday, I had a good one! However, my presentation rocked (for a change) and it allowed for some good interactions. 👏🏻🙌🏻👏🏻

Being a middle school mom and watching my son just sit there zoom after zoom, not talking and getting bored, my advice would be break up your lecture as much as possible. Try to get response and interaction and just keep changing things up. I know it’s hard to “entertain” but you are on a screen and competing with what they normally see on a screen like tv or video games. Present the info in different ways in short bursts. Get response and engagement, keep them on their toes.

I have taught 100% asynchronous. It is so much easier for older students than younger. They really need to have self-discipline to do school online. That comes with maturity and commitment. I can tell which one of my students will do great just but how often they log in. My Zooms will not do anything extra to improve their scores. I feel so flat in Zooms but It could be worse. I’d give me a “C” in Zoom.
