Without the actual school bell ringing to signal the end of class, it can be a whole lot easier for your schedule to get thrown out the window and completely lose sight of the flow and agenda of your virtual class. We know that everything takes longer when you have to do it virtually. By using the Mindful Agenda, all students can see what topics will be covered, and when, to help keep the flow of learning and questions moving. Having on-screen objectives will not only boost your productivity but can keep morale among students high, too, with a sense of achievement as another topic gets ticked off the list!
Particularly useful if your Google Meet for Education is a collaboration between educators, participants, and perhaps the odd special-guest or two, on-screen profiles including your role will help everyone remember who’s who. Direct your questions to the right person, and be more mindful of everyone’s contributions with Mindfulmeets profiles.
