Frustrated with virtual aspect of teaching
Posted by WWindy on 9/10/2020, 12:43 pm
I am teaching in-person beginners with about 3-4 synchronous virtual learners. |
My face-to-face students are doing about as well as I would expect, but I keep getting comPLETEly wrong assignments from my virtual learners, or no assignment at all.
I mostly draw things on the board, so the virtual learners are getting the same lecture as the in-person students. I upload every worksheet into the learning system and our school bought Kami, which allows students to write on PDFs and turn them in. It's great, actually--they just won't do it.
I am frustrated with myself, mostly, because I do not know how to reach my virtual learners. I can't see their work, I can't really help them.
I guess I just needed to vent. I know I should be grateful that I got to start beginners, and have students at all, etc, etc. But this year has been really hard.
