Best Practices for Digital Learning for Students
Quiet space: Find a place where there is not much noise.
Headphones: If headphones are available, plug them in so your teacher and classmates hear you.
Materials: Have your supplies, like paper and a pencil, ready to go.
Take Care of Business: Get a snack, a drink and use the bathroom. Join the class a few minutes before it starts.
Camera: If you'd like, turn on your camera to connect with others in your class. Remember - you can always turn your camera off.
Talking: Put your microphone on mute when you are not talking.
Chat: Your teacher might want you to use the chat box to type questions instead of saying them out loud.
Kind words: Be kind online – your words and action matter.
Ask for help: If you are stuck or confused, ask a classmate or teacher for help using phone, email, or post in your virtual classroom.
Share: Share what you are learning or working on with a family member.
Unplug: Spend time each day not looking at a screen! Read a book, play outside, call a friend, play a game, draw, or get creative!
