The National “Sarah’s Spanish School,” A Palm Beach County After School Option, Goes Online
DELRAY BEACH, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — (BocaNewsNow.com) — An “A” for effort, but it’s a work in progress.
Students in Palm Beach County enrolled in “Sarah’s Spanish School” are taking part in a national “Zoom Video Conference” remote lesson this morning. Sarah’s Spanish School is a paid add-on option for kids in aftercare in Palm Beach County Schools — and many other school districts nationwide. Normally taught in person with a local instructor, the school has moved online, offering live video lessons.
The first lesson started at 10 a.m. ET and it’s as humorous as it is educational.
With no offense at all to those involved, the instructors are trying to figure out how video conferencing works. It’s a bit of “Max Headroom” meets small market television. It’s clear that the main video conference providers of Zoom, Skype and Webex need to offer step-by-step instructions for folks who have never video conferenced before. But tech issues aside, we give Sarah’s Spanish School a resounding A+ for making it happen.
Using video conference technology is a part of life for many businesses but is still new for many instructors. Sarah’s Spanish School is a great example of those who are dedicated to teaching trying to use technology to educate — and even entertain — during trying times.
