There is no harm in students seeing these instructions, and it helps them know what to expect from the teacher. We recommend teachers say things like, "OK, now let's summarize your responses!" before actually summarizing, to help students learn this important academic vocabulary.
Making separate slides is not recommended. When teachers want to direct students attention to a certain question or content, we recommend using annotate feature of the video conferencing platform. This leads to higher student engagement and also saves time and effort for the teacher.
We recommend turning OFF screen sharing during the student discussions so you can see students' faces as they are responding, and students can see each other. Don't forget to turn screen sharing on again for explanations!
Instruct students to write the questions and answers in their notebooks or on a separate sheet of paper.
We recommend using breakout rooms, which are available in most major videoconferencing platforms. For some activities that require students to work together on the same physical resources, you could ensure at least one student per group has the resources. You can also choose to do a demo or show a video instead.
Tap on your mobile screen in the sutdent's view and click on the "Cancel" option to go back to the teacher's view. We recommend that you stop screen-sharing/casting BEFORE moving back to the teacher's view.
