    Yes! Such an important point that getting used to new instructions and new situations increase the cognitive load for students which is a barrier to learning the content. The takeaway: you must have empathy for your students' having to navigate new formats and technology in addition to trying to understand the content. Instructions must be simple and clear.

    Highly plausible: The added cognitive load a) coming from the "distance" b) due to the different approaches of different teachers. Also learned the rotation between the three kinds of interaction: 1. with content 2. with the peers 3. with the teacher. BTW, I liked your "old-fashioned" approach in making the video. Yes, ultimately the teacher matters!

    might want to have your thumbnail say 'distance learning' in it. I clicked on the video only to realize a few minutes in you were talking about 'distance learning'.

    Really useful information and I love the 'less is more' principal especially. Good reminder. Thanks!

  11. The ways you shared make sense! It's hard to keep your students engaging on line. We are so used to a normal classroom setting with close distance connection. How to make learning fun and creative also plays an important role!. Thank you for sharing!
