  • Digital Learning: Pupil Engagement

To what extent do informal drop-in sessions help to improve student engagement across digital learning?


Online learning has been one of the most significant challenges to the teaching profession in the 21st century. It has required the normal classroom setting to be shifted onto online platforms and teachers have had to find new, innovative ways to replicate the classroom experience online. One aspect of online learning that teachers have been grappling with is online engagement with their pupils. There are numerous different strategies that can be used to increase the engagement of pupils online such as live online lectures, reading and writing tasks that pupils complete in their own time and recorded lessons (Zayapragassarazan, 2020). For this practitioner enquiry I chose to focus on engaging my pupils through informal online drop-in sessions. I wanted to investigate if communicating with pupils live would result in an increase in their online engagement.
