According to United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), there are currently more than 1.2 billion children in 186 countries affected by school closures and now learning primarily online due to the pandemic. While many professionals agree that online learning is here to stay, it creates a variety of new classroom challenges for teachers, administrators, students and parents. During this 3.5-hour interactive learning seminar, teachers and educational professionals (yes, that incudes you, parents!) will learn to make the most of online learning.
How do teachers compete with video games and engage students successfully in an online environment—inspiring them to come to not only learn, but complete assignments and keep them coming back for more? How do educators bridge gaps for tactile and experiential learners? Approach this new educational paradigm with confidence and learn proven techniques to set you, your students and their parents up for success. While teachers must acquire new ways of teaching, students must also learn new ways of participating in an online classroom. Whether you are teaching young children, or working with adolescents and young adults, learn how to use your time and skills to maximize everyone’s online classroom experience.
