6 Tips For Creating Effective Student Groups - TeachThought

6 Tips For Creating Effective Student Groups - TeachThought | Education Strategies in the Age of COVID | 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.

Our 2020-21 Writing Curriculum for Middle and High School - The New York Times

Our 2020-21 Writing Curriculum for Middle and High School - The New York Times | Education Strategies in the Age of COVID | Scoop.it

"Our 2019-20 Writing Curriculum is one of the most popular new features we’ve ever run on this site, so, of course, we’re back with a 2020-21 version — one we hope is useful whether you’re teaching online, indoors, outdoors, in a pod, or in some hybrid of these.

 

The curriculum detailed below is both a road map for teachers and an invitation to students. For teachers, it includes our writing prompts, mentor texts, contests and lesson plans, and organizes them all into seven distinct units. Each focuses on a different genre of writing that you can find not just in The Times but also in all kinds of real-world sources both in print and online.

 

But for students, our main goal is to show young people they have something valuable to say, and to give those voices a global audience. That’s always been a pillar of our site, but this year it is even more critical. The events of 2020 will define this generation, and many are living through them isolated from their ordinary communities, rituals and supports. Though a writing curriculum can hardly make up for that, we hope that it can at least offer teenagers a creative outlet for making sense of their experiences, and an enthusiastic audience for the results. Through the opportunities for publication woven throughout each unit, we want to encourage students to go beyond simply being media consumers to become creators and contributors themselves.

 

"So have a look, and see if you can find a way to include any of these opportunities in your curriculum this year, whether to help students document their lives, tell stories, express opinions, investigate ideas, or analyze culture. We can’t wait to hear what your students have to say!"

Sebastián Vásquez's curator insight, September 21, 2016 7:13 PM
In my opinion, substitution, argumentation, modification and redefinition (SAMR) model is a very useful tool to have into account as a starting point, or as a reference one, to start thinking about the way teachers can design lessons and the role they want technology to play into the classroom. It could also be used as a way to make students reflect upon the way they normally use technology and to make them aware of other possibilities and different ways in which they could do it. Furthermore, we can use this method as a pretext to discover others and to explore other ways in which technology could help us all to enhance teaching-learning processes.

While ever more schools adopt textbooks and student reading materials to digital readers like iPads and Chromebooks, some recent research suggests students may comprehend more from reading print.

As students buy fewer textbooks and utilize more e-books provided by institution purchase, such as PharmacyAccess, this needs to be kept in mind.  Do we need to provide paper handouts of the key points? Should students take notes or create mind-maps of the key points to help further reinforce what they are reading electronically? There is also new studies highlighting the importance of note taking.

The Power of Chunking: How To Increase Learner Retention

The Power of Chunking: How To Increase Learner Retention | Education Strategies in the Age of COVID | Scoop.it
Chunking is a critical element of the learning process and explains how we can learn and retain increasingly complex information.

Via EDTECH@UTRGV
Mary Starrys insight:

This article explains the concept of chunking and key aspects to keep in mind when using the process.  We are starting to use chunking with our videos, using short videos that focus on one concept, with each video building on the preceding ones.

Ross Tamburro's curator insight, April 28, 5:08 PM

Week 12's lesson on components, activities and sequences got me thinking about a principle that is mentioned and used a lot in my day-to-day work in ODEE: Chunking. Chunking is a tactic that is used when thinking about proper sequencing within any instructional design project and essentially refers to breaking up an entire learning principle/outcome into smaller chunks.

 

This article refer's to chunking as taking learning in "bite-sized chunks," which I think is a perfect way of thinking about it. The article also centers its argument for chunking around the idea of retention, which is something that we also talk about going hand-in-hand in my day-to-day work. The idea of retention is at the epicenter of learning in general and without it learning can be seen as almost completely ineffective. Chunking is the first part of retention, where you ask a learner to master (which can go into its own definition of what it really means to actually master a topic) a small amount of information that is part of a larger learning objective/topic. Rather than taking everything in at once, learners combine their mastered sub-topics at the end of an instructional period to create a finished puzzle of the overall topic.

 

The article goes into three ways to go about chunking, which I can say are similar strategies to what we use every day in ODEE: Grouping, patterns and organizing. We encourage all instructors that we work with to use our template within Carmen, which not only keeps a familiar structure within each module, but also keeps each page/element within those modules aligned. This is for the purposes of keeping students familiar with navigation and expectations along the course journey. But within each module of our template, we also organize material into headers such as "Readings," "Lectures," and "Practice" for the purpose of students being able to chunk their learning each week. This is something that we've seen as successful and leads to better mastery of material.
