How to Keep Classroom Relationships Strong During Distance Learning

May 8, 2020The Nearpod Team

Transitioning from a physical to a virtual environment can be tough waters to navigate. The once warm morning hugs and hellos are swapped with technical video conferencing difficulties and infrequent 1:1 time with your students. Here are some ideas to help sprinkle the magic into your distance learning lessons by using Nearpod to keep classroom relationships stronger than ever.

#NearpodTips to Strengthen Classroom Community

Record audio directly within Nearpod so that your students can feel like you’re with them!

More #NearpodTips:

  • Use a Collaborate! board to post words, images, and/or gifs of encouragement!
  • Use one-word check-ins and hide student names so you can really hear from your students
  • Set virtual class rules together by providing an opportunity through an open ended question or collaborate board for students to submit rules and procedures
