Demo lesson screensharing Vyew
The aim of this demo session is to present virtual classroom management and varied activities when teaching a group of students both synchronously and asynchronously. Firstly, I'd like to highlight the advanced features of Vyew virtual classroom, which allow teachers to keep groups of students highly engaged. The tools which I'll be using in the demo lesson are as follows: video player, quiz, sticky note, annotation tools and chat. Next, in the second part of the session, I'd like to present how students meet in their Vyew classroom and do tasks asynchronously and how easy it is for the facilitator/teacher to communicate with their students in the newest Vyew version 4.0. Finally, I hope that the observers of this demo lesson will be able to see how the term "lesson" can become obsolete in the context of online teaching ;)
