In a blink of an eye, there are more children who have "wandered" in the third year of online classes

  Teachers, facing the camera, lecturing; children, facing the computer screen, studying; parents, leaning over from time to time, looking at the screen, and then looking at the children, supervising.

  "You think he is listening to the class, but in fact, his brain doesn't know where to fly." Now that the online class is in the third year, parents find that it is more and more easy for children to get distracted during online classes.

Whether it is a teacher or a parent, in order to ensure the quality of online classes, it is necessary to battle wits and courage with children who are distracted.


A student is distracted and reminds the class

  The teacher is at home and the students are in the classroom. How should such an online class be taught?

Not long ago, Fan Weiwei, a Chinese teacher from the Primary School Affiliated to Beijing Petroleum Institute, experienced an unprecedented challenge.

  "Since this year, the epidemic has been spreading in many places. Sometimes schools may not suspend classes uniformly, but some teachers or students will be temporarily asked to stay home." Last month, Fan Weiwei, who was attending school at school, suddenly received a notice from the community: From now on , the community can only enter.

  "Due to the limited impact of the epidemic, most students can still come to school normally, which requires teachers to make adjustments." Fan Weiwei understands that it is not a long-term solution to find other teachers to replace the teaching, and the school is just exploring how much the epidemic will become normalized. A variety of response plans, "including teachers at home, students at school, students at home, teachers at school, and some students at home, some students at school and other different situations." After some discussion, the school decided to take this as an opportunity to test the waters of new teaching model.

  "Before the official class, a few teachers at home did a simulation to get familiar with the operation process of the platform." On March 18, Fan Weiwei sat in front of the computer at home and met the students in the classroom across the air.

"There were 34 students in the classroom that day, and 5 students were temporarily at home, so everyone achieved real-time connection in multiple places."

  In order to ensure the smooth progress of the live broadcast, intern teachers were invited to the scene to provide assistance.

"The students in the classroom feel very fresh. As soon as they see me on the screen, they can't wait to rush to the front to say hello."

  It was the first time that Fan Weiwei encountered a lot of difficulties when she tried this kind of online class.

"Usually, I can walk among the students and make eye contact with the students at any time. If I find a student distracted, I can remind you without a trace, but when I sit in front of the screen, sometimes I can't even see the faces of the students in the back row. When students desert, they can only remind the whole class, which will inevitably disrupt the rhythm of teaching.”

  Fan Weiwei realizes that the live radio is also a detail that cannot be ignored. "Usually when asking questions in the classroom, the students can answer in unison, and the teacher can hear at least one main voice. But live broadcast is not possible, and the headset will 'explode' when answering in unison. Say it one by one, and it’s better to go to the front of the classroom and say it, so that the radio effect is best, and the students at home can also hear it.”

  Because the screen needs to be switched back and forth, and at the same time taking into account the students who are studying at home, there are also various small situations to be dealt with on the spot. The original 40-minute course, Fan Weiwei ended up taking more than 50 minutes.

"The 'dual-teacher classroom' that cooperates online and offline is a test of the tacit understanding between teachers. It is necessary to prepare lessons together in advance, so that we can deal with it comfortably." Fan Weiwei is glad that these problems have been recorded one by one, "We are fighting as a team. , keep in touch with the school leaders and technical departments at any time, and let everyone overcome difficulties and continuously improve the process.”

  This year, Fan Weiwei is still shouldering the heavy responsibility of rotation, but because of the epidemic, he is temporarily unable to go to the other school.

Fan Weiwei plans to use the dual-teacher classroom to conduct live teaching in May. "In the future, we can try to build a platform to allow students from the two schools to communicate and interact together, organize debates, etc., to make the online class more colorful."


It's easier to get distracted in "big class"

  Haitao's son, Xiaolang, is in the first year of junior high this year.

"Boys of this age have almost all of these characteristics, so it is almost impossible for him to sit there and take a class without moving."

  When the epidemic first came, Xiaolang was still a primary school student and had taken online classes for a whole semester.

Since then, Haitao has discovered: "The online class that is watched on TV is the largest in scale. A teacher is most likely to get distracted when facing thousands of students." With the normalization of the epidemic, the form of online classes has also changed. In change, classroom sizes are getting smaller.

  In March of this year, students in some streets in Dongcheng District were studying at home, and Xiaolang was also one of them.

"Dongcheng District has its own APP, and teachers start online classes on the APP. If you have your own teacher to teach the class, the effect will be much better." Haitao said, unlike the large class of ten thousand people, Xiaolang's attention is concentrated in the face of familiar teachers. a lot of.

  However, the situation of mind wandering still exists.

"Even if it is an offline class, he will be distracted in class." Haitao feels that the development of online classes, whether he is distracted or not is not determined by the form.

Children are naturally interested in electronic products. When taking online classes, they naturally feel itchy and want to use the computer to play something else.

"I talked to him, trusting each other, and agreeing to three chapters of the law. Be careful in class and don't cut to other programs. After class, you can play on the computer or mobile phone, but for a limited time."

  This method of treatment has eased Xiaolang's distraction during the online class.

But Haitao is still a little worried about completing homework after the online class.

  "The atmosphere of the school is there, and the students are doing their homework, so he can do it quickly." Haitao said, especially when Xiaolang is at home alone, he is the least efficient.


Don't think about fighting wits

  In the third year of online classes, Xiao Rui, a third-year student, is no longer a stranger, but as a parent, her mother's heart is more and more conflicted.

  "The school's online class requires the camera to be turned on, but it takes turns to go on stage. When not on stage, the child may be distracted." Although the teacher will ask questions in class, Xiao Rui's mother still found that "there is time to drill", " The school's platform has a youth mode, and you can't browse other web pages after opening it, but if parents don't know how to set it in advance, there's no way to limit it." What made her speechless was that the child actually "sees the needle" during the class break when she should have relaxed her eyes. To hang up and play the game for a while, "In this way, it is equivalent to 'long' a day in front of the computer."

  In addition to the online classes on campus, Xiao Rui's mother also signed up for online training for her children.

"It was originally an offline class, but now it has been changed to an online class." Before the class, she specially greeted the teacher, explaining that the child had been distracted during the online class before, and hoped that the teacher would ask more questions, "The teacher also has 'struggle experience', come up Just have the child turn the camera on to the hand and make sure the child is in class and not playing with the phone."

  Before each online class, Xiao Rui always enters in advance.

"It was said to be a preview, but the result may just be thinking about hanging up the game first."

  Xiao Rui's mother learned from the teacher that the child's eyes were found to be wrong once. "The teacher grabbed the child's page from the background, only to know that the background is an online class, but the middle one is a novel being read. I am particularly puzzled. Son, didn't you say you can lock the screen beforehand? The teacher told me that some children pretend to be disconnected, and then log out and re-enter, and the lock screen limit will be broken."

  Xiaorui's mother is also very entangled in the online class, "the effect is indeed a bit tasteless." In order to prevent her child from playing games by taking advantage of the online class, she even tried to cut off the Internet when she was stuck, "Parents always think about fighting wits with their children, But in the end it depends on whether the child is conscious.”
