ArtPlay Workshop Virtual Classroom Engagement: Lessons Learned from Online Summer Camp @ 4p
> Set up a workspace in advance;
> Create a timeline for each day, even if you do not always stick to it, and add more breaks;
> Set ground rules for using technology correctly and respectfully;
> Address fears and worries and get to know students;
> Lead students through activities and make sure they are responding to instruction;
> Use dual screens so students can see you and your work;
> Brainstorm ideas for engagement; for camps, these included low-stakes activities such as theme days, pet sharing time, decorate your workspace, bingo cards and “closet cosplay,” for which students created a costume at home; and
> Use movement when possible.
