How do you approach a virtual group of silent students? I have utilized PearDeck,NearPod to engage my PM group but they are mute. My AM group is awesome but this PM group is non-responsive. Especially during reading.

I would make it clear that participation is part of their grade, and hold them accountable.

When we went to distance learning before we did a Meet My pet activity. It was a great ice breaker. Alone the way I allowed kids to do a quick share and it was fun.

like

Maybe do a game using Kahoot or another platform; make it a contest. They love competing. Allow students to have small group discussions/activities in break-out rooms. Flipgrid is great as well.

(my team of teachers was discussing this all day today...). I have no great answer for whole group engagement issues. I've improved some individual engagement by ratting them out to their parents though....

What types of questions are you asking them to answer? Are they quick and easy, and where there is minimal risk involved? Do they have to share verbally or can they start by answering in a nonverbal manner? (Sign language helped a ton starting to break the ice.) Do they know how to mute and un-mute themselves? What is going on in the backgrounds? Are there sounds/events going on where they are that they don't want to share/interrupt? One family had 3 virtual students all in the same room, logged in to 3 different classes... so if one tried to answer, you heard everyone's lessons. Are you doing pure academics or are you mixing in ways to build culture? For some students, it was comments of, "I haven't heard your voice and your thoughts today. You may choose when you would like to share, or I can ask you a question about.... (whatever topic we were discussing."and give them a time limit to answer within. It worked for some...and not others....

I think you should do something fun/interactive. Scavenger hunt that goes with the story. One minute to find the item. Clap on a specific word. Are there interactives that go with the story or ones that you can make to incorporate to help inspire.

Sending out a "heads up" note to parents/families so that they know their children will be getting up to look for items around the house has helped. Sometimes, family members join in!

Some groups find it easier to say things in a chat room. I’m not familiar enough with the platforms you mentioned. Do they have group chat possibilities?

like

When I do large group virtual training sessions, I encourage learners to comment by unmuting or typing in the chat. In some sessions, students participate solely using the chat. I then break them into small groups to discuss what we have learned or practice.

They all need naps, so don’t take it personally.

Agree….shake things up a bit. It’s elementary, tho not sure that makes a difference other than how we respond. I wonder what they would say (as a group) if you asked them what they thought about the day-in day-out silence. If they like it, ask why? If they don’t? A conversation might be in order. 🤷🏻‍♀️

like

Maybe a "would you rather" with actions? Exercising as a way to make their choices known? "If you choose this, do these exercises for 20 seconds."....type of thing. When doing this previously, everyone wanted to explain their choices. Maybe it's a way to get them sharing ideas?

I started giving them participation grades for class activities like Pear Deck and Jamboard.
