Are online reading mentoring sessions effective?
Online reading mentoring sessions are very effective. Students love the online space and are quite tech-savvy (digital natives).
Their attention span is much longer than in person. Students remain focused throughout the lessons.
Students feel safer in many ways. Some students get nervous when someone is sitting right next to them.
Online mentoring is perfect for those students who are immune-compromised keeping them safe from unwanted germs.
They are in the comfort of their own home, they know how to use their own computers, and they don't need to worry if someone will touch them (tactile defensive).
BEST PART....they can show up in their pajamas with their stuffed animals!
