Now I've just read in an earlier post "that videoconferencing just isn’t the same as face-to-face" and then I hit this article saying that "we're realising that, for the most part, video chat works." Now no doubt some will want to stuff this difference of opinion inot a generational 'Zoom Boom' thing, but I fall into the latter camp. Videoconferencing is just fine for pretty much any kind of communication I may want to do. You may not like Zoom if you're in the "stand close, give hugs and high fives" teacher demographic, but I would find such behaviour in a teacher inappropriate. Something like Zoom allows me to have my safe space. My point here: we can't generalize about whether videoconferencing 'works' (except in a purely technical sense). What works for you doesn't work for me.
