Zoom forces the teacher and facilitator to be concrete and specific in ways that can help clarify objectives. Unlike a plan for an in-person session, where you can count on transition time between activities and the serendipity of happenings in physical space, a plan for Zoom has to clearly identify the goal of an activity and specifically prompt its actions and responses. It feels clunky at first, but, as with all skills, this one improves with repetition.

One thought on “Clunk

  1. Keep those clunks coming. A theme song I’m using to get through some of my own clunks, on and off Zoom, is from “Chitty Chitty Bang Bang,” called “The Roses of Success.” It popped into my head as I read this post: “So every time you stumble, never grumble. Next time, you’ll fumble even less — ’til up from the ashes, up from the ashes, grow the roses of success!”
