Virtually connecting several real classrooms from different locations to uplift the ambiance of active learning in classrooms virtually
Tell us about your idea
The atmosphere of actively learning and interaction in real classrooms is conducive to impact learning. It is usually what virtual classes lack. But virtual classes can break through the constraint of physical location to bring students from different parts of the world together. We can have the best of both worlds by virtually connecting several real classrooms from different locations to uplift the ambiance of active learning in classrooms virtually. For example, real classes are hold in 4 cities, namely Hong Kong, Washington, Singapore and London. There are cameras showing the 4 classrooms on a common learning platform. Teachers from each city will deliver certain parts of the classes physical to the students locally, and students from other city virtually. Students from each city will take part in group discussion and presentation virtually to the 4 classes.
Tell us a little bit about yourself and what inspired you to share this idea.
I am a parent and trainer, bored by lots of virtual classes which showing the faces of teachers and students in a way like video phone calls lacking the active learning ambiance in classroom.
