Teachers can create an environment in which they and their students feel as if they are in class together. Be the master of one than a master of none: As teachers, we sometimes want to try all the strategies and technologies. It can be overwhelming to learn, and it is overwhelming for our students. In reality, teachers only need a few specific technologies to have successful distance learning. One of the must-have technology is a robust and comprehensive Learning Management System website, and teachers need to be a master at using their Learning Management System website. Teachers should then learn how to use other technology to supplement and enrich students’ learning experiences using the Learning Management website. Practical: As teachers, we sometimes try to overcomplicate strategies. For example, teachers can use a Learning Management system to create adaptive assessments that allow students to check their learning with immediate feedback. On the contrary, some math teachers still assign worksheets and ask students to take pictures to submit their works. Teachers can’t provide meaningful feedback timely. Instead, teachers can invest the time to create a few questions that allow students to assess their understanding. Organized: Using a Learning Management System website, teachers can organize activities so teachers and students can easily find the activities. Establishing a consistent organization between online activities and offline worksheets will help students develop a deeper understanding and have fewer questions. Be flexible: Not accepting any late work is not a practical classroom policy and expectations for distance learning. Instead, use a Learning Management System to allow flexibility and penalize students for turning any work late. Using the right Learning Management System website, more these teacher administrative tasks are done automatically. It’s not the same as in-person learning: Some of the strategies for in-person learning are as effective as distance learning. For example, teachers can use equity sticks to call on students during live asynchronous activities. However, asking students to listen to your lecture through a video-communication platform is not practical for a more extended period. Instead, teachers can pre-record lectures and allow students to watch asynchronous during a live session to ask questions whenever they needed. Using the right Learning Management system website, teachers can use live data to monitor and support students.
