Thanks Peter. I value the learning from interacting with peers. The children can benchmark others' strengths and improve their own weaknesses. In terms of content, language will be a typical subject. Would it be English, Chinese, Spanish, French, etc. Other interesting subject can be innovation for social issues. Teachers can first share a common social issue, e.g. air pollution, and then facilitate structured brainstorming and discussion about new solutions, followed by the group presentation of the refined ideas and vote for the best idea in the class. In terms of language, English may be a major medium of instruction. For time zone, classes at different time can be arranged, given the number of participants are large enough. I participated in an online English education forum before. There were classes almost every hour. For the classes I attended, there were participants from US, UK, Russia , China and Hong Kong. Seems to be it works despite different time zones.
Hi Sarah, amid the COVID-19 situation, real in-person classes may contain 10+ students wearing masks. For teachers' delivery, it may look like TV talk show. The speaker talk to the audience onsite and audience through broadcasting.
