6 Tips For Creating Effective Student Groups - TeachThought

6 Tips For Creating Effective Student Groups - TeachThought | Techducate | Scoop.it
Grouping students is easy; creating effective student groups is less so.

The following infographic from Mia MacMeekin seeks to provide some ideas to help make group work easier in your classroom. The strength of this particular graphic is in the range of the ideas. The first tip refers teachers to Vygotsky’s Zone of Proximal development, which frames student ability in terms of a range: what they can do unassisted, what they can do with the support of a More Knowledgeable Other (MKO), and what they cannot do even with support. This is different for each student, and understanding these ranges for students can help inform grouping decisions, whether you’re using a peer instruction model, ability grouping, or another approach.

Teachers are not that different than our students.  Administrators  could use Today's Meet near the end of staff meetings.  It is also an excellent way to model the use of technology for staff.

Great Tools and Apps to Teach Students Computer Programming ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Techducate | Scoop.it

"Learning how to write a computer program is a lot like learning a new language. There are nouns, verbs, and sentences. With far fewer words than a spoken language, it may be easier too. A student of languages can pick it up just as quickly as a student of math. To help, here are a set of tools that teach computer programming."

I still don't understand why Google Classroom is better than, say, Edmodo or Schoology, other than the fact that has so few features that it is quite simple to use.  Nevertheless, if you're a Google Apps school, its tight integration with All Things Google is attractive.
