Online classes have been a good alternative for some students to stay active and connected with each other. However, for other students who need additional support, these classes have stripped away many tools and strategies for coaches to connect and engage their students. That’s why we built the Smoothclass app, a digital version of our physical class board where parents can create personalized workouts with the help of nearby fitness, martial arts and yoga studios.
At Bel Air, we use a visual schedule board composed of cards that shows students each activity that will be covered during class. It is helpful for breaking down the class into small tasks, providing full visibility on what’s next which decrease anxiety and rigidity during transitions.
