  • Student

Tell us about your idea

During this pandemic many teachers have started to dwell on what they could have done to have more talking time  with students and my idea is not complicated at all and actually very simple my idea is too have a time during each class where it is called a share time and this is where the teacher and her students will talk about things other than school and get to know each other more I believe this will create a better environment for the classroom. 

What part(s) of the pre-COVID school system do you wish to leave in the past? Why?

Long Lectures

Tell us a little bit about yourself and what inspired you to share this idea.

I am a person that likes to relax and talk but when work needs to be done it will get done but I believe that My idea works out really well and makes sense at the end of the day.

What region are you located in?

  • North America

Where are you located?

Texas well the weather does change a lot over here and it does sometimes get annoying.

I like your idea to separate but have both: working time together and social interaction to simply connect to others. In addition, our research has shown that students like to work with others together on an exercise Learning-by-Doing TOGETHER
