A Simple, Low-Tech Approach to Improving Engagement While Teaching Remotely

So here we are in 2021 and most of us are still teaching remotely, at least part of the time. I know one pretty universal issue many educators are facing in this environment is engagement with our students. For those who are used to teaching in a traditional face-to-face classroom setting, it seems that every step we take away from that has the ability to take us farther from engagement.

I found a simple and inexpensive non-technical tool that I found was helpful to me – a simple, portable whiteboard! When I set this up and started using it, I instantly felt more like I was teaching in a classroom. The students reacted positively and I felt like there was more engagement.
