After having a conversation about the idea of virtual office hours, a seventh grade teacher we know has started to do a few 15 minute study sessions with students who opt in, going over class notes, suggestions for study tips and more. Kids seem to be enjoying it, and grades on recent test show improvement. What kind of other easy and free ways do you use to help your students regardless of level? Are there other things we can do with tech to offer additional support to students who opt in? What do you think of communication tools like skype, texting, chat, etc to help students beyond the class period?
