If you are considering teaching online, here are some things you might want to consider in advance:
Online teaching opportunities are typically very creative teaching opportunities for teachers, but there are some technology basics you need to know before you embark on your online teaching adventure.
Most online teachers use Skype because it is simple and easy software to install that has stable audio quality and the ability to screen-share your desktop to work directly with education websites and PowerPoint presentations.
Skype works well for one on one classes, but if you are interested in teaching larger classes, you might want to consider working within a virtual classroom platform to help you manage groups online.
Another pitfall that teachers may come across is how to keep your students motivated when they are online with you. This always depends on the context of your teaching model.
Fun activities such as field days and physical activities are out, but you have to think outside the box with online teaching. Some activities you can consider for your classes are story-telling activities via multimedia, making videos or even making comics.
Students are often motivated by what they see, so your camera is one of your most important tools. Online teachers need to be extremely expressive on camera.
Your goal is to make your students feel like they are in the classroom with you. Backdrops, visual aids and chat options should all be made available during your online classes so you can add an extra element of fun to your teaching style. This will also help you establish a better sense of intimacy with your students.
Please also be aware that as an online teacher, your presence is online, thus social media can be a huge pitfall for teachers who are not presenting themselves professionally online.
Additionally, please be aware that there are many online schools that offer substandard salaries for teaching online. Pick and choose your school wisely.
Most of all, remember to have fun!
