What are others on the call doing with breakout rooms?

We have a small online class here at Oak Hill Collaborative in Youngstown, Ohio called Raspberry Pi. It's an instructional video course that allows elementary students to build small computers, computer coding, etc and then students get to take them home after the 6 week class. What advice do you have to encourage kids - and teachers- to take part?

Could be a great strategy to use breakout rooms to help address the multi-level challenge.

Meet with new students individually to orient them to Zoom to build confidence. This way they'll feel more comfortable when they join in the class.

This might be a lame question, but do you have your students ONLY speak in English or do you allow them to speak in their native language when needed (not that I would be able to understand)
Davona Eshman
26:07
Not a lame question. I let them use both as needed.
Deena Finlinson

It is an ESL class so everyone knows they should speak English. Sometimes it is difficult. There is a communication problem when the vocabulary isn't developed. Also the themes I choose get people excited so they lose the focus on language. They might lapse for a minute or two, but get back on task quick enough.
