Movie Activity to Raise Learning Awareness

One of the great challenges of teaching online is the effort tutors have to make to humanize connections to reach and inspire the person on the other side of the computer screen. In my experience, students who take online courses need to be told that the course is not just the content on the LMS, and that there is a teacher who cares and wants to interact with them. I am lucky because at Casa Thomas Jefferson we are always inspired by Carla Arena to keep changing gears and finding ways to be inspired, for the attitude of the educator has a great impact in the online learning environment. My face to face students like movies, and need to be told about learning strategies, so I can assume that my online ones do too, right? Here goes an activity to raise learning strategies awareness for my clicks away students.
