Zoom fatigue?

Posted on: January 22, 2021

Zoom fatigue might be real, but the term is a misnomer. What might actually contribute more to teacher and student fatigue is poor pedagogy.

Such is the pedagogy of uncritical and uninformed transfer — the attempt to simply recreate a classroom dominated by teacher talk and constant monitoring. This focuses on what a teacher needs to do. It does not necessarily focus on the learner and learning.

Learning is what matters, often takes place outside the classroom, and is difficult to measure. There is a long tail of learning and what happens in a classroom — a physical or an online one — might only be the start. So why put all your eggs in one basket only to see them crack?
