Regional English Language Officer
- 10:15-11:15 - Day 1
It’s tempting to think that management in virtual classrooms isn’t needed. After all, teachers have ultimate muting power. But there are key decisions to be made that will affect behaviors, coordination, and efficiency in online lessons. Camera on or off? When to use the mic, when not? The presentation will address these and list principles that make for well-structured tasks in live online sessions. Additionally, Kevin will offer a list of activities that are better online than face-to-face.
