Laura Patsko - Online lessons that are active and interactive

00:30 - 00:30, 12 May 2020

These days, more and more teachers and learners are finding ourselves spending the majority of our days online – planning lessons, doing self-study or attending live synchronous classes. We can look on the bright side and say, “Well, if we have to be locked down at home, at least we have the technology nowadays to keep us connected.” But there’s no denying that, for many people, sitting and staring at a computer screen for long periods every day is not very motivating or healthy (either mentally or physically). So how can we boost levels of energy and engagement in our live classes? This webinar will demo a few tips and tricks, and invite teachers who have recently moved their classes online to share their own insights.
