As students return to their classrooms for in person learning this fall, many teachers have been reflecting on what elements of remote learning were effective and worth maintaining in a more traditional classroom setting.
In an in-person classroom setting, it is often obvious when a student seeks help from the teacher, and it becomes obvious which students are getting the most consistent support. Some students may feel embarrassed or shy, and thus miss out on receiving support that is crucial to their learning.
Throughout the pandemic, students were completing their work on various online platforms, such as Google Slides and Google Docs. As students worked, teachers had the ability to view their work live and leave feedback in real time using the comment feature available with Google applications (click here for more information about the comment feature on Google products).
This discreet communication afforded the opportunity for more students to express their questions and seek support when needed. Many students who were more reserved in person found great success communicating with their teacher through comments online.
