Remote Teaching and Learning Tip:
Use verbal and non-verbal cues just like you would in a typical classroom for transitions. Consider making cues using the digital tools and icons (e.g., mute/unmute), or use those that work for you in other settings. Create cues for participation/interaction. For example, students can raise their hands on camera, use the reaction buttons, or you can make up your own cue(s). Students can also help create these cues to instill a sense of investment and ownership.
