The last eight sessions have been really informative and engaging and I've been trying to implement many different strategies from those learnings - like online tools that I'm using are- Quizzes, Kahoot, Socrative. I'm also taking my classes giving assignments on Google classroom as well. I'm also using mentimeter to make thinking visible and to help children express themselves what they feel. What they've learned etc. And. I am also using different energizers like eye breaks and movement breaks. I've been making presentation slides in which I'm making sure that I use larger fonts. I highlight the text which I want them to focus on true colors, underlining them, and to use different usual visuals and graphic organizers as well, and I've shared PowerPoint in the assignment section as well.

It’s really amazing, the correlation between the sync and async classes are really great. So if anyone misses any point anywhere at the asynch or synch, everything is very very nicely correlated. I really, it’s really hard to believe that this is the first time you are doing because it is so nicely synched.
