“Do. Or do not. There is no try.’’ Says Master Yoda to Luke Skywalker in Episode V of Star Wars.
Our online learning experience was exactly this. For us, trying to do online learning was not a choice we had. For a middle school student, eight weeks of learning is crucial and we did not have much room for errors. We either do it or we don’t and wait for the conundrum to settle and take it up from there. But we chose to do it, and we did it!
It was a truly enigmatic learning experience for students, parents and faculty. Every day, there was new learning in some classroom or the other, whether it is the discovery of the use of breakout rooms in Zoom, or using a different platform like Padlet or changing your background on Zoom, endless possibilities and endless ways of incorporating them in our online lessons. Online teaching and learning gave us an opportunity to reflect on our own teaching practices and also evaluate the potential of our students.
