If you’ve tried online, concurrent, or hybrid instruction, but you feel like you’re talking into a void and miss the classroom interactions, then this workshop is for you.
We’ll begin by exploring what successful online gaming communities can tell us about teaching online. Then we’ll discuss how to take what you did in person and do it online or in concurrent settings. We'll review classroom routines, norms, and cues that will give you the classroom management needed to ensure that all students participate.
From there, we’ll focus more on implementation including quick daily warm ups, math tasks with rich discussions and how to keep students engaged and accountable in small groups. Finally, we’ll wrap up the workshop by talking about how to make this teaching sustainable.
