    I have a question for my mum!

    Can anyone help give advice on the best way to teach students online. I need to be able to make face to face contact while I’m teaching and show/annotate documents or powerpoints. What have teachers been using during lockdown? I don’t my paying for software if it’s good but if possible for free is better.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Most online platforms have screen sharing options. Skype and zoom do

    I think some subjects lend themselves to online tuition more easily than others, Maths is one example. I email notes and questions to the students beforehand and use Skype plus an A4 whiteboard in the lessons, it works quite well.

    Use Zoom, then screen share, it allows all the stuff you have asked and more. Good luck.

    Zoom, screen share and also get a Graphics tablet. Also, Bitpaper is quite nice

    You can get a decent tablet peripheral for £30 from Argos. It plugs into your laptop/pc via USB and allows you to make annotations with ease. It has definitely helped me with online tuition and teaching.
