Getting Lessons Started, In Person or Online
Want a good class? Have a strong start! This goes well beyond just asking how students are when looking at them after the bell rings or across a screen. We want to both establish rapport and optimize their learning, and doing both can be done in person and online. For this, we'll look at several ways of getting a class going using images, games, discussion tools, and short videos. All the tools we consider are multi-platform and freely available.
