We are in our second round of school closings because of winter weather. Growing up in Finland, I cannot recall a day that school was cancelled because of weather, but in Atlanta the situation is completely different. I am thankful to be home safely this time around, as I had to stay with a coworker in the last snow storm.
My students were not thrilled to hear that I was sending them with assignments since we would be missing more instructional time.
So what did we do?
I used TodaysMeet to host a two hour live session with my students. I set the room up one minute prior to starting, so that I could control the length to be exactly 2 hours. Students had been assigned social studies reading and tasks, and this was their chance to ask questions.
Based in Doha currently, I am a technology-advocating learning junkie.
