Zoom Learning Visuals

Help me give my students the ability to see writing projects up close with the growth mindset journal to use during our one on one time as well as a math visual to better follow our math concepts.

My Students

Due to being at home, the only way to effectively teach my students is to use Zoom meeting sessions. The students love the fact that at least we can see one another and talk in real time, and they can see thier classmates as well. I have realized that when teaching online, there are so many elements to consider, but the largest so far is missing my whiteboard where the students can see documents projected and see my writing up close to take notes.

As I brainstormed with my students, there were certain things that they thought would help them on these Zoom sessions to be more focused.

I would love to incorporate these items for not only student engagement, but to help students retain the information after our meetings.

My Project

Though my students will have access to Google classroom, students themselves tell me often that online and paper pencil learning needs to be balanced otherwise they get headaches with too much screen time.

Also, I find that students actually lose writing skills when they are only typing and not doing the actual process of writing.

Students love to journal and have hands on activities! I envision students being able to share their learning aloud with the class and being able to correct work as they learn from others. Also, when I am able to personalize materials like this, students feel much more special and valued.
