Misses:

1) Talking to the presentation screen instead of pupils. Sound silly, but it is not difficult to just minimize the presentation screen to check on the pupils, and just like in the classroom, crack a joke or two with the children

2) Didn’t plan activity for pupils to participate in, if they can’t listen continuously for more than 20 minutes in class, they most probably can’t do that for more than 10.minutes through Google meet

3) Homework should be brought to a minimum. It is difficult to get pupils to do homework after already spending 6 or 7 hours facing a computer.

4) Peer execution of peer evaluation work, in fact, I am not sure if pupils actually even look at their friends’ work and compare it against theirs

HITS:
1) Focused small group sessions that require individual feedback and immediately corrections from me in a seamless continuous loop is quite effective, if done consecutively
