Learning Online: How to Make it Work for Students

Posted on October 24, 2020 at 12:43 pm

Teaching online poses challenges for teachers and pupils and it can take a while to get used to working in this way. Here are some tips to help:

  • Give yourself more time. It’s never a good feeling when something takes longer than usual, but e-leaning will take a while to adjust to. Be patient and spend a little more time getting your resources ready.
  • Make sure pupils can still learn in different ways. Have options for visual learners and audio learners – this might mean distributing resources and leaning materials before lessons.
  • Communicate clearly. When you cannot be in the same room, good communication is more important than ever. Encourage students to be open and honest about what is working and how they might want to learn.
  • Be understanding and compassionate. Learning online will have its challenges and will be difficult for pupils, too. Pupils and teachers alike should be patient and understanding so they can overcome challenges together.
