Creative and Playful Ways to Engage Learners on Zoom

We know many educators are fast-tracking their video conferencing skills in anticipation of remote or hybrid learning scenarios this fall. We also know - because many of you have told us - that this feels daunting and overwhelming.

The Behrman House team has been working hard to make it easier for you. In addition to the variety of student, teacher, and family resources we've been rolling out to help us all through these challenging times (read more), we've also teamed up with video conference experts to bring you some much-requested professional development.

Better Together Labs, helmed by Reggie Harris and Mallory Penney, created a workshop specifically for Jewish educators on how to to engage learners over Zoom. We invite you to watch the videos below to learn games and techniques to up your remote teaching. Simply turning the video camera on and off becomes the basis for an engaging game called "Show Yourself If" or the feature of changing your name enhances the framework of an interactive exercise called "Story Spine."

Watch the recordings below of a recent hour-long workshop with Jewish educators on creative ways to engage students on Zoom, and a webinar about Zoom basics.
