Providing all students meaningful support through hybrid or distance learning can be challenging. Fewer students are participating in live interaction, and students ask the same questions over and over again. Teachers cannot provide one-to-one support like they are in class. Students are also afraid to ask questions during a live online interaction when they know their peers will hear the questions.
However, we can provide more personalized support for all students using the right strategies and online tools.
Using an interactive forum, teachers provide a centralized means of communication to support all students. The forum allows students 24/7 access to ask questions, and students can answer each other’s questions. Teachers can provide students meaningful support with media such as text, images, and videos. Most importantly, all students can view all questions and answers that are shared with all students, and teachers can privately answer to a student as well.
Overall, this strategy streamlines how teachers provide support to all students through hybrid or distance learning.
