Social distancing presented a challenge of providing teachers' professional learning remotely. In this session, I will share how I supported teachers remotely with live remote instruction and developing an online course using Google Classroom to track teachers' progress and provide feedback.
I will share how I set-up my virtual classroom using my computer, Promethean ActivPanel, webcam on a tripod, and UHF microphone. I will also share how I used the following tools for presenting: Zoom, Google Meet. ClassFlow, Slido, Google Slides, and Chrome extensions.
I will also share I used post-training evaluations to help improve and develop my professional learning offerings.
