This thread is for section 4, activity 3
What is appealing about the tutor role?
Teaching in computing and communications remotely is different from classroom instruction. In this activity, you should consider the tools that you have experience with to work remotely. How might you use these in teaching?
Activities you could consider are using online tools to debug code, screen sharing, use of development tools, asking questions, or using the phone.
Select an idea, how could the effectiveness of the idea be increased?
These are examples of the types of posts we might expect to see:
"Key things that appeal to me, are that the role is part time, so I can fit it around my other work and family commitments. It gives me the opportunity to work with students focusing on their individual needs rather than preparing learning material for large groups. This maps well to online tools as I can use these effectively for small group teaching, at evenings at weekends without additional travel. I can interact using voice, video and text chat. I can use interactive white board activities to engage students and observe how they solve problems, so I can offer hints about their next steps."
