The first week of online learning presented some interesting challenges. Although tech is not something new in life, learning through it can have struggles. Connection issues, delayed responses, and links not working can trigger some level of anxiety in our students which can essentially put them in a mental block to learn.
Truth be told…I had a few meltdowns as well.
