Counselor to Counselor: Using a Bitmoji Classroom
Counselors all over the country have been finding creative ways to stay engaged with their students despite the various limitations presented as a result of COVID-19. One resource that I have found to be extremely helpful is the Bitmoji classroom. I used my Bitmoji to create a virtual office with a wide range of resources. Setting it up was very simple, I followed the steps on this YouTube video. I would highly recommend that you consider creating a virtual office as it provides a way for students to still feel connected with you as well as have access to resources that they need.
Below is a photo of my virtual office (the photo does not include hyperlinks).
For reference, included in my office are links to the following:
-virtual field trips
-Time management tips
-A link to resources for our English Learners
