Hang in there, Vampires! 🏼🦇

Things might be a little weird with hybrid teaching and learning these days, so we’re providing you with some ideas about inclusion, engagement, and eliciting formative data to gauge comprehension.

We also want to let you know that this coming Tuesday is Safer Internet Day” with the theme of “Together for a better internet.”  
It’s important that we allow all students to share their ideas and demonstrate where they are with concepts. Giving them time to think about their response and providing them with consistent opportunities to share this is imperative. 

Have a look at the following Edutopia article, Extending the Silence (Giving students several seconds to think after asking a question—and up to two minutes for some questions—improves their learning).

How do we informally gauge where kids are at with concepts in class? Have you ever used the classic “popsicle” response method? Trying to informally gauge the comprehension of all students can be tough. Kids will always slip through the cracks and it can be often easy to let the very participatory students always answer (especially on Zoom!).

The following video tutorial will show you how to get a proper response from all students, how these responses can be consolidated, and how to use this as proper data

  One Form For All  – 100% Student Response
Tuesday, 8 February 2022, is Safer Internet Day with the theme of “Together for a better internet.”

Safer Internet Day “will call upon all stakeholders to join together to make the internet a safer and better place for all, and especially for children and young people.”

Please consider choosing a resource to bring this important discussion to your class next week. As always, let us know if we can help!
