Analysis Of The Teachlive Experience
1. What are your thoughts about using TeachLivE™ as a tool for teaching practice?
In my opinion, teach live is an incredible tool for students who want to become a teacher. I loved TeachLive even thought I wasn’t the one chosen to teach them.

We had images to show her of a rug because we concluded that she might not know what a rug is and we had a book to show her and guide her to the answer. For Edgar, we asked him what do you do when you go to the bookshelf and he did a really good job replying back. It seems like it was a question easy enough for his proficiency level. He restated the question before answering making sure he understood correctly and he truly did a good job answering the question. For Tasir, we asked her after you have picked a book what do you do and she reply quickly and with no issues.
