Distance Learning Hack: Breakout groups If you teach like me, you love it when students are engaged. I found that when students began learning in Google Meet, many of them suddenly got shy! I’m not sure what it is about the screen (though I’m sure there are plenty of psychology and sociology articles that could tell me if I looked), but I really wanted to get my students talking to one another again. Cue in: break out groups! Step 1: Download a Chrome Extension called “Mute Tab.”
