Description

The closure of educational facilities as a result of preventive measures against the spread of Covid-19 has affected the education system in the world. Like never before, the traditional classes were switched to online ones in Prishtina. The need to rearrange teaching to distance or online format was seen as a priority, in order for students not to stop learning and getting educated. Students' motivation and engagement are crucial for an effective online classroom. The data was collected via two questionnaires and an observation list. This research has been conducted at three different schools in Prishtina, “Hasan Prishtina”, “Mitrush Kuteli” and “Asim Vokshi”. Students provided answers to 80 questionnaires, and teachers provided answers to 13 questionnaires. There is also an observation list conducted in one class of each school during an online lesson. The questionnaires have been designed to get an idea of what motivates and engages the students in a web environment. This study identifies various methods, strategies, and websites that can be used during online classes in order to motivate and engage 5th grade students during online classes. Next, the study investigates the relationship between the teacher and educational technology, as well. The results of the research questions were mixed.
