Be clear about what is expected from students when it comes to DQ responses. 

Digital communication must not replace personal engagement

I teach in the Early Childhood Department and have recently started encouraging students to think outside of the typical question and answer verbal responses by encouraging the use of social media and interactive apps for ticket out discussions. I would love suggestions from others using this format.

I found that communication online is best FaceTime or video log. Students are able to interact but with a little more responsibility. As stated in the previous module we don't want too much anonymity. Calling on students by name is effective from teacher to student and should be no different from peer-to-peer.

Technology can enhance what we do or hinder us if we are not familiar with how to use it correctly. I've used VR, Flipgrid, Yellowdig, drive shares and other simulations type software. Each independently brings something to the table. Each one shouldn't be used all by itself. The variety is the key component to a good classroom space. 

I have learned the importance of online learning and engaging students in  a online environment being able to use learning tools from online and encouraging participation. 

The post pandemic online learner changed the game of how students learn and why they want to push forward with careers. Most according to the statistic are motivated by children or their dependents. I see a lot of this in the classroom. The next generation is waiting for a reason to push themselves forward.

Hi everyone, in this module I've learned how to increase the effectiveness of cultural responsiveness within the classroom space. The statistics were most helpful and painted a real picture of online vs. in-person learning. I believe in-line with the material that we should emphasize and empower the individual student with equity rather than equality across the board. I will work on applying this in my own classroom by tending to individuals on a face-to-face rather than the class as a whole. An example would be changing coursework depending on each student's weaknesses rather than curriculum. 

Comment on Tim Pope's post: Hi Tim, I absolutely agree with you. We are in a new generation of adaptive teaching and learning. It demands that we be culturally responsive.

I feel it is so important with the students to acknowledge their feelings and emotions and I think at times that can be a struggle. This is especially difficult when I feel the student could be achieving so much more!
