Hi everyone, I am a student at UTRGV and graduating next year to be an EC-3 teacher. I know during the pandemic it was tough keeping all 20+ students engaged and participating and even tougher with the kids learning to use zoom and teachers learning as well as uplaoding assingments only online and trying to keep everything running smoothly. My question is if anything were to happen again like COVID and only having online classes (God forbid) How can we make sure kids stay interested and involved during our online classes?

Hi! I think we should have something put into place where we can make sure students stay interested and involved during classes if they are online. It will be a difficult task but districts may have to change something in the curriculum to make sure there are no gaps in learning abilities if it is from a computer.
