Strategies I use to facilitate engaging, impactful, and relevant online classes
The impacts of COVD-19 can be felt in every classroom across the world as students and teachers face the challenge of creating community and facilitating learning in virtual environments. In the wake of this global pandemic, educators search for ways to create student-centered learning environments in which students are actively engaged and highly motivated. The question we will explore in this post is how can teachers develop, facilitate, and monitor a student-centered virtual classroom?
As I work toward developing the perseverance and drive to achieve my goals, I am reading Grit by Angela Duckworth. My biggest learning so far has been the importance of identifying and defining my inner compass, "...the thing that takes you some time to build, tinnier with, and finally get right, and then that guides you on your long and winding road to where, ultimately, you want to be" (p. 60). I use this compass to set goals, plan my daily actions, and reflect.
