Useful Tools

Engaging Students

As an effective and engaging  teacher your lesson could include:

  • a live or pre-recorded video message to start the lesson
  • clear written instruction for the lesson intention (using OneNote, SEQTA and/or Teams)
  • a 15 minute (maximum) instruction
  • added interactive enhancements such as a Form, Quizlet and/or Kahoot, etc.

Once instructional component of the lesson is completed the teacher engages with students to check for understanding.

Tips for Maintaining Interaction

  • Read their contributions to the chat out loud and use students’ names
  • Use of video so the face to face feel of teaching is maintained
  • Call on students, don’t wait for them to ask questions. They can respond using microphones or chat. Keep track of who has spoken and who hasn’t, as you would in a real classroom.
  • Don’t lose time whole class time on individual technical issues.  eg. if a student’s mic is not responding, ask them to use chat instead, and then check in with them after class. or call on another student.
  • Use Forms or Polls as formative assessment tools during the lesson.  Call on students by name whose submission you are still waiting for.
