Tip #11: Embrace Flexibility and Adaptability

While planning and structure are key to effective teaching, the ability to adapt and remain flexible in response to your students' immediate needs, interests, and reactions is equally important. Elina is designed to support this dynamic aspect of teaching by allowing quick adjustments and fostering an environment where spontaneous learning opportunities are embraced.

Why Being Adaptable Matters

  • Responsive Teaching: Adjusting in real-time to the cues and interests of your students can lead to more meaningful and impactful learning experiences.

  • Encourages Creativity: A flexible approach allows you to explore creative teaching methods and activities that might not have been part of the original plan.

  • Builds Student Engagement: Adapting your lessons to better suit the mood, energy levels, and interests of your students can significantly enhance engagement and participation.

Implementing Flexibility with Elina’s Help

  • Use Elina as a Resource Pool: Treat Elina’s suggestions as a flexible resource pool from which you can draw spontaneously during lessons.

  • Request On-the-Fly Adjustments: Don’t hesitate to ask Elina for quick modifications or alternative suggestions based on real-time classroom dynamics.

  • Quick Modifications for Immediate Needs: Leverage Elina to quickly find alternatives or supplementary activities when plans need to change on the fly.

  • Plan for Options: Request from Elina multiple activity options for key lessons, giving you the flexibility to choose based on the day's specific context.

Embracing Adaptability in Practice
