It’s All About Student Engagement

Remote learning calls for teachers to reimagine student engagement. We need to build new structures to bridge the gap between traditional methods and the demands of a virtual learning environment. This session will dive into ways to tweak common tech tools and leverage their ability to open the doors for students, with regards to equitable interaction in both synchronous and asynchronous settings.

Through the lens of the AVID (Advancement Through Individual Determination) WICOR (Writing, Inquiry, Collaboration, Organization, and Reading) framework, we will examine:

  • Structuring virtual and hybrid environments to maximize learning.
  • Orchestrating meaningful discussions in breakout rooms.
  • Embedding choice in student learning to increase buy-in and student connection in the virtual environment.

Learning Objectives

By attending this session, attendees will be able to:

  • Structure a virtual or hybrid lesson to maximize learning.
  • Use common tech tools such as the Google Suite and Zoom to engage students in learning virtually.
  • Increase student collaboration through the use of templates and structured routines in breakout rooms.
  • Create differentiation offering choice and voice for students by leveraging tech tools.
