When constrained by common adverse conditions(i.e., How can good old Classroom Assessment Techniques be used online when…)
- Online meeting time is VERY LIMITED
- (e.g., Only 1
- or 2 sessions;
- “too much to cover”)
- Learner and leader locations:
- Learners are not in the same physical space as leader/facilitator/teacher but are all in the same room.
- Learners and the leader are all in different locations.
- The leader and some of the learners are in the same room and some learners are in other locations.
- Cannot ensure that ALL the learners
- will use Internet via the same combination of device, operating system, user interface, …
- will be fully ready to use any single designated tool for online interactivity before the first session begins.
- Internet access
- The teacher can not see the participants.
Some lessons learned from other situations that have SOME similar characteristics and SOME significant differences
- Have BOTH A "voice of the room" ( a person who serves as an interface between distant learner and group) AND a "voice of the vote" (a person who serves as a counter/summarizer of the results displayed visibly via some physical devices for voting (eg. thumbs up/down; 5 fingers; colored cards)
- Determine the extent to which participants have the same devices, they know how to log into the device, updated flash, etc
- Have a back-up plan or continuity plan such as record the event, email the participants, leverage TodaysMeet, Kehoot activity, scavenger hunt activity,
- When meeting more than once, introduce something during session one that you will use in session #2)
- Send a recording with instructions on how to log into the application prior to the event.
