One thought on “How to Engage Students in Zoom and Teach Effectively at a Distance

  1. Hello, I am a preschool teacher and mother of a Junior in High School and I am so glad you speak about the videos. I know that for my age group the requirement of videos is needed. The interaction is very engaging and on a short span of 15 minutes or so. Yet my daughter’s class has very few children actively engaged and most of their videos are off for a minimum of 45 minutes. The shared information is through lectures and I know my daughter is so bored. I will actually share this blog with them. I think your clear assistance and positive engagement idea will be great for them. Thank you 🙂
