Here it is! After several weeks of work, the Room – Beecome’s Virtual Classroom – changes its face to improve remote learning.
Even more involved
A learning institution is above all a place for ideas exchange and interactions. Digital tools should come on board only if willing to preserve these two pillars. Beecome was designed taking into consideration exactly that and that’s why it keeps evolving.
A virtual classroom must remain a learning space made of instantaneity and exchange of knowledge. At the heart of this reflection is engagement. How to engage learners and encourage them to participate in a remote fashion?
The evolutions of the Room bring on board a panel of tools to maintain this important link to interactivity.
? Lots of new tools ?

The class can be divided into several work groups in order to carry out team projects, for example.
