Can you really “meet” and see your students online while conducting online or hybrid classes? Are your students willing to turn on their cameras and show their faces? Do they say “hi” to each other and interact actively like what they would do in a physical classroom?

You may think it would be impossible to answer “yes” to all of the above questions. But really?

Come and join this teacher sharing session to learn how Dr. Peter Ng makes use of a learning community app “Gather Town” to make all of these possible!
