How can I encourage my students to engage more with online learning?

We would encourage you to look at the content and engagement PowerPoint which includes a YouTube video on how to encourage students to turn up to remote learning. We would then suggest looking at the digital tools you are using, one example could be using a wheel of names to engage all students as Beth from The Manchester College does in this video for Directed questioning wheel of (mis)fortune. Also, we would suggest looking at David from The LTE Group’s video effective synchronous tips for teaching and learning.
