Distance Learning: Engaging Students While Apart

Help me give my students a more engaging distance learning environment closer to the one we used to have in our classroom with the use of a document camera.

My Students

We were anticipating an interesting day, it being Friday the 13th, but never were we expecting the stay-at-home announcement that came suddenly that afternoon. Who would have thought when my students and I said goodbye that it would be our last day in our classroom.

And just like that, suddenly without warning, we began our distance learning journey together.

We are making the best of it, taking advantage of the various online resources. Students access learning opportunities via our Google Classroom. Several times per week we 'meet' on Zoom to check in with one another, share Good Things, practice and review skills, and engage in fun learning activities. In addition, I am posting videos, audio, screen sharing for them to continue to learn new material. I am impressed and so proud of the level of participation and the families' willingness to try new things.

My Project

My students have left a classroom where technology was used daily to deliver academic content in an exciting and engaging manner. They are used to being taught with a document camera and participating in interactive lessons.

Distance learning opportunities need to be as meaningful and interactive as possible during this time apart.

Students are doing their very best to learn from their homes, but the learning environment is not ideal. They would benefit from "seeing their teacher in person" while learning and even more, so if I were able to share with them visuals of what we're learning and exploring. Having a document camera will help give my students an engaging learning environment closer to the one we used to have in our classroom.
