Teachers everywhere have been thrown into the deep end, having to teach online at the same time as teaching students face-to-face in the classroom.
As a teacher, you’re probably used to having a good grip on what’s happening in your classroom. You know who isn’t engaged, who’s struggling with a task and needs help, or who isn’t putting in the effort you know they are truly capable of. But with teaching online, it can be hard to keep an eye on the whole class and before you know it, students can be feeling left out, disengaged and potentially start falling behind.
Teaching online can add a range of issues to your lessons. Take technology for example. It’s amazing when it works, but unfortunately, it doesn’t always work, and problems with technology can add a lot of stress and frustration to you as a teacher and to the students learning online. Plus, when you have students that are learning online, they may feel alienated and find it nerve-racking to speak up and get involved in the lesson when they are talking to a screen. They can become less engaged and find the lessons unenjoyable.
And lastly, Stress. Stress is definitely not a new thing when it comes to teaching. We’ve all got examples of how teaching can be a stressful job as it is, but add online teaching to the mix and it can have the potential to get a lot more stressful.
