12:19:46 pm mrch0mp3rs: Another strategy for the classroom is to situate the learning where the learner is at. Not just personalized — proximal. #lrnchat
12:20:02 pm InSyncEU: RT @tbfurman: Having a helper present to call attention, and non-distracting for the presenter #lrnchat Also adds a separate voice mix it up

12:23:30 pm petersonandrew: Q3) Train in person, but that implies my bias that training involves an action. As opposed to learning with is more intellectual #lrnchat

12:25:01 pm MichelleLavoie: Q3 I like both but think that classroom and online teaching require different skills #lrnchat
