I have had many issues with students wanting to use the bathroom when I am teaching or going over homework. I remind students daily that we meet and have time that they may use the bathroom at the given break time. Also, they may put their two fingers up to form a V shape to use the bathroom.
Also, another issue we are having is the listening part. When their cameras are off it is taking them longer to get back to the computer to unmute and ask for the question repeated. When you don’t face the computer or have your headsets on then you will not be following along. We have to remember you have to sit up straight in front of the computer with all of our supplies next to us. So we do not leave the computer to find our supplies. Always have a bottle water and our snack next to use, so we can always next to use and not look for it.
We will start our meetings with everyone muted, so they must raise their hands to ask or answer a question. Most importantly sit in 1 spot and your computer should not be moving. Your body should not be moving. NO dancing, making noises, or making funny faces. DO NOT interrupt class so keep yourself muted.
Parents we are all learning on how to get our students to learn and enjoy learning at home virtually. Please go over the norms and expectations of being online and rules they should be following.
