Collaboration and connection are important for our social-emotional well-being. Importantly, Luma has conducted research and published the benefits for creating learning communities remotely. This year, Luma will provide specific strategies you can implement to connect learners remotely. We are calling these strategies our Luma Connections.
Teaching Tool: Discussion Board
This is an online tool that allows learners to interact with each other to explore a topic and to discuss key concepts and concerts, share experiences, interact with each other, and to ask questions. Interactions are not in real-time and can be mentor-learner and learner-to-learner.
Create a Dance Off
Getting learners out moving and connecting with others can create not only memories, but positive connections with each other. Post a video of your team dancing to a particular song. Challenge your learners to connect with a friend, colleague, or family member to create a dance video with the same song.
