Join Kevin Kelly for an in-depth discussion in this video Facilitating small-group work in the classroom, part of Foundations of Teaching with Technology.
- Small group activities are a great way…to engage students in the classroom.…Often, the activities are designed…to capture background knowledge,…recall what students have reviewed before a class,…and build on content you just shared via lecture.…When we think about small group activities,…first, we have to pick the best activities…for what we want students to do,…how much time is available,…and how many students should be in each group.…Exercises related to learning outcomes…can help students in multiple ways,…which I'll mention in a minute.…With, or without technology, small group activities…can be as short as three minutes,…or as long as 20 minutes or more.…
Typically, small group activities…involve two to four students.…In the movie on active learning, I discussed strategies…for different levels of access to technology.…If not many students have technology,…it can be as simple as showing a video…that they discuss after.…Basically, you supply the technology.…If a quarter or more of your class has a device,…you might decide to include a technologist role.…
Author Kevin Kelly explains how learning outcomes can be adapted to support technology in the classroom, and guides educators through selecting the appropriate technology for their activity, module, or class. Then he shows how to apply technology in three key areas: finding, creating, and sharing content with students; facilitating classroom activities; and assessing learning inside the classroom or online.
