I had some teething problems when I first used Google Meet, I was talking and the sound was not there so one of my student notified via messenger…it was a bit embarrassing…however I had already told the students that as a teacher and as a student, we were all new to the technology so we will make mistakes…also at times I had the video showing on my laptop but not shown to the students so one of my student would notify me via messenger which I tackled tactfully saying I am still learning. First before we begin online class, we have to set some rules so that both the students and teacher show respect to each other during sessions. There should be time set aside for asking questions. Teacher should not be interrupted during general teaching session. If mistakes or errors are made while answering questions, it should be clarified. We are all human and this type of learning is new to all of us. The understanding should be clear from both teacher and learner perspective
During face to face classes, at times we are challenged with similar answers in economics especially. Also discipline issues, attendance issues, incompletion of work at times becomes a problem. A teacher and learner should always respect each other. A teacher should always help students in class since home environment may not be conducive to learning.
