Some of the challenges associated with virtual instruction include connecting with students and checking for understanding in real time. ChemEd X Talks with Michael Farabaugh about how he uses the interactive features of Nearpod to create formative assessment items that provide valuable feedback and facilitate student participation. Join the conversation! Register for this 30 minute Zoom meeting to be held Feb 2 at 7pm EST.
Michael teaches high school chemistry in Virginia. He is a NMSI Coach, active with APTeach, an AP reader and an outside item writer. He is well known for his generosity of sharing with other chemistry teachers. His YouTube channel has over 7000 subscribers and is packed with videos for AP chemistry. He is one of the admins for the popular AP Chemistry Teachers on Facebook (with over 5000 members) and he shares a lot of content there as well.

ChemEd X Talks are 30 minute virtual meetings that consist of a short presentation (5-10 minutes) followed by Q&A and discussion. Teachers are asked to keep their video on if possible, ask questions and participate in the discussion by offering their own ideas and experience with the topic. These live Zoom events are free, but registration is required. Space is limited, so register early.
