7 Best Practices for Teaching Online - 

Most of the schools are closed at the moment across the country due to COVID10 pandemic and schools are conducting online classes. No-one has thought an year before that something could cripple us like this and no-one was prepared for this.  Since most of the classes are being conducted online and teachers/schools are preparing themselves for long haul, here are some best practices for teaching online:  


Dedicated teaching place 

A dedicated teaching place at home or in school would be really helpful to organize and avoid any distraction during lessons. Hence, it's highly recommended to have a dedicated teaching area. It could be as simple as a corner with a table, chair, supporting material, laptop and webcam. 


Go prepared with topics details

Prepare the topic before class and organize content in-form of slides, animation or videos to avoid any last minute hiccups. If you are using whiteboard or black board to teach, document important points which need to be covered in class. This will help you to remain focused and provide a better teaching experience to students.


Clear Expectations 

Set clear expectations with student and parents that what is needed from them during class. Also, help them to accommodate them with online learning environment.


Learning Objective

There must be a clear objective of each class and sharing it with kids/parents will help them to come prepared and ask relevant questions during class or after class.


Real World Scenarios 

Share real world scenarios with students. It will help them to co-relate and understand it better. Theoretical example good to elaborate but if we link it with real world issues, it becomes easier for kids and help them developing problem solving skills.


Engage Students 

Kids are still not very used to online classes and they might skip classes if they don’t find it useful/engaging. Hence, it’s very important that teachers engage kids in conversation and involve them in learning process.


Prompt Feedback 

Feedback is the most important aspect in online teaching process and we must have a feedback mechanism to understand what students/parents are thinking about online lessons. It will help to structure the content in a better way and improve over teaching process.


Considering the current situation, it seems COVID19 may not go away as soon as we thought and we have to thought. There are more and more cases being reported every day and Government is doing everything to stop the spread. It’s very important that we all play our part during this difficult time and help each other and government to overcome this. This has been a trying time to all of us but we can only defeat COVID19 if we stay together and do the right thing.
