Promoting Student Engagement in a Virtual Setting

Audience: Teachers


Research shows that it is imperative that students develop social-emotional learning (SEL) competencies, even in a blended or virtual environment. During these times, it is important to cultivate a sense of belonging, increase student engagement, promote connectedness and foster student engagement outside of the traditional classroom.

To support these initiatives, Kickboard has produced evidence-based professional development to help teachers with virtual online strategies and actionable resources to drive student engagement and cultivate a sense of belonging while in a remote learning environment or blended learning setting.

This on-demand course promotes a positive online learning environment that allows for rigorous instruction and parental involvement. The course includes specific, proven strategies used by teachers, technology tools that will promote student engagement and unique videos of students explaining their experiences and thoughts.

Challenges Addressed:

  • Educators struggle to promote connectedness among students and family members in a virtual setting.
  • Educators lack tools to engage students outside of the traditional classroom.
  • Teachers do not understand the student’s perspective of what makes an engaging online experience.

Program Outcomes:

  • Establish different ways to promote a positive online learning environment that allows for rigorous instruction and parental involvement.
  • Develop expectations that can be used when teaching in a virtual setting.
  • Create systems that encourage student feedback in order to monitor academic and behavioral goals.
  • Explore programs that spark student engagement by creating a space where students feel like they belong and want to join the online learning experience.

Virtual Package Includes:

  • 2 hour self-paced virtual course.
  • Resources and tools to promote student engagement.

Kickboard has made a huge difference. We reduced disciplines by 44% in just 18 weeks. If I go to another campus and come back to ours, I can see and hear the difference. It’s so positive here and that’s changing the culture of our school. This not only improves students’ behavior but it improves their academic performance as well.
