Session Description:
The past two years of virtual learning have revealed the tremendous impact that COVID-19 has had on our education system. Students dealt with many challenges which caused them to view their education as a secondary step to having a successful life. As a result, they began to distance themselves from interacting with their learning environment and classroom routines.

Join Reba Gordon Matthews as she shares strategies to help rebuild student engagement by utilizing some of the most effective teaching and learning techniques from both virtual and in-person learning.

    I really enjoyed how Reba brought in the interpersonal connections of getting to know someone. As she mentioned, it's not about being best friends or even liked by all your students, rather it's letting them know who you are and getting to know a little bit more about each of them. Also reiterating that consistency is key! As a first year teacher, I'm finding out each day that consistency and repeating concepts is a main piece of a teaching foundation.
    I love that Reba addressed the complexities that were created by the pandemic and the best practices to counteract the affect that COVID-19 has had on students, teachers, and the educational system itself.
    I know students and teachers have returned to in-person learning for a while now, but I feel the lingering effects of online learning as a result of the pandemic are still impacting our students' learning and are still relevant even today
    very good, I liked the Tick Tock Classroom because the kids love the Tick Tock.
