Got Zoom? Strategies for Online Engagement

Dr. Shawna Martino, Ms. Katy Sell, and Dr. Crystal McCabe

Pandemic got you “Zoomed” out? Join us for some fun engagement strategies that will have you “zooming” again! This presentation will share key virtual tools and strategies that provide the engagement teachers seek in virtual and hybrid situations. The session will include an introduction to each of the learning applications, with tips and tricks for using them effectively. Engagement strategies for classroom instruction are more important than ever because many schools utilize remote learning options paired with regular classroom teaching. Classroom engagement allows teachers to keep students focused on the lesson, create a classroom community, and monitor students’ progress. However, while many teachers are comfortable engaging students in the regular classroom, they have struggled with incorporating engagement strategies into the online platform. Therefore, in this presentation, educators will see how several traditional classroom strategies are modified to fit the online modality.
