BE COMPASSIONATE

EXPLORE THEDIGITAL TOOLS

EXPLORE THE DIGITAL TOOLSChances are that your teacher is swamped with work and juggling between learning how to properly apply distance learning, creating materials and tasks for you, attending teacher training, and let’s not forget that teachers have their own families. We know you like using computers and phones, so why don’t you take your time and explore the digital tools your teacher decided to use? Most teachers will try to explain, and some of them will even make video tutorials for the apps, but students often get stuck and just ask when they cannot find an option. Why not turn this situation around, and do your own research on the app? The teacher mentioned that she will use Genial.ly and Edmodo. Why not watch a tutorial on YouTube and then go explore the app itself?

BE COMPASSSIONATE

COLLABORATE WITH YOUR CLASSIf the teacher asks you to collaborate, work in pairs, or small groups, try to do your part and take the online group work as seriously as you would participate in a group activity in the regular classroom. Collaborating online maybe even more fun than collaborating in person because you will talk online while also using the chatbox, which is never boring, right?! 🙂

BE PATIENTWait and please do not be negative if some of your classmates have technical problems, or if they post questions you think are maybe redundant. Please bear in mind that not all students possess the same knowledge about using digital tools and some of your classmates may not be very tech-savvy.

BE SERIOUSDistance learning is still learning, and you are all still students. The classroom is a classroom no matter where is it located. Bear this in mind and try to behave nicely in the virtual classroom as you would in the brick and mortar classroom. With this in mind, also try to relax and act as you would usually do in your usual classroom.

ENJOY THE VIRTUAL CLASSROOMThe distance learning classroom can be so much fun if you let go and participate fully. Your teacher may present many interesting things, apps, games, and activities. Feel free to suggest any activities you would like to do or any app you would like to use. You can even present it to the rest of the class. Since you will be using digital tools for some time, why not try to introduce some digital content you like?

BE A LESSON MODERATORDoes someone have some problems with using the apps or completing the assignments? You are allowed to step in and help your classmates finish a task. At the same time, you are letting your teacher continue with the lesson without interruptions.

DO NOT CHEATIf you have to take an exam online, do not cheat. Your teacher will probably know, and he/she will definitely conduct an oral examination. You do not want to completely fail a subject and learn nothing. Now that you are not going to school, you have a bit more time to study. Try to study a little every day and take the exam seriously – as if it was conducted in the classroom.

COMPLETE YOUR ASSIGNMENT ON TIMEDoes someone have some problems with using the apps or completing the assignments? You are allowed to step in and help your classmates finish a task. At the same time, you are letting your teacher continue with the lesson without interruptions.

HELP YOUR TEACHER If you noticed that your teacher is stuck, motivate your teacher to continue, even offer to help with using an app if you know how to use it. Be polite, but do not be ashamed to show that you know something. I promise you that your teacher will be forever grateful.

BE COMPASSIONATEMindfulness and being nice is something that we should not forget despite being in a virtual classroom. Being compassionate with your classmates will make you feel at ease, as well as them. The current situation in the world is not very good, so some of your classmates may be more stressed out than others. Try to calm them down and tell them that everything will be all right and do everything to prevent further panic.
