Synchronous Teaching Techniques from the Perspective and Observation of Virtual High School Teachers: An Investigative Study
O'Brien, Amy; Fuller, Richard
International Journal of Information and Communication Technology Education, v14 n3 Article 5 p55-67 2018
This article describes how there are specific tools and techniques used by teachers in synchronous-live-virtual classroom environments. Those items were investigated in this article. Data was collected from semi-structured, one-on-one interviews conducted with a purposeful sample of twelve identified "highly-qualified" teachers at a cyber charter school in Pennsylvania that administered mandatory online synchronous class sessions. Additional data was collected through observations of each participant in their recorded archived "synchronous live" class sessions. The results of the study detailed the use of tools and techniques in regard to engagement, assessment and classroom management.
