COVID 19 brought us many obstacles to overcome. One of them was the post-pandemics situation, where there is no right answer, no certain plan or path to follow, and where we have to cater to all students' needs - be they in class or at home. The HyFlex approach allows us to teach students both home and in-person at the same time with no harm to learning and no extra work for the teacher. A wide-angle camera and microphones in the classroom, and a virtual meeting platform allow students at home to follow and interact with the teacher and other students at school. Lessons are planned so that all students can learn, interact and reach the same goal - wherever they are.
This session aims to provide ELL teachers with strategies to implement or improve HyFlex classroom instruction. Participants will learn how to keep students engaged and interacting in HyFlex classes and also how to better plan classes so they do not have extra work.
First, we'll do a brief introduction of the HyFlex Approach (5mins). Then we will go through the main concerns related to the approach when it comes to ELL (5mins). We will then go through our strategic plan in order to successfully implement the approach in ELL classes (10mins). Participants will have the opportunity to check some of our real lesson plans (which are called learning paths) and share their thoughts and ideas.
