Randomised seating strategy
Do your learners sit in pretty much the same seats every day? Do they feel uncomfortable when you move them? Do you have cliques and/or loners in your groups? If you answer yes to any of these questions, then there is a strong chance that you are not sufficiently building the social infrastructure of your new groups.
If you use positive, educationally sound randomising seating strategies from day 1, then the issues above could well be a thing of the past, giving you wonderful, peer networking groups to use as part of your learning and assessment strategies.
To run Taxonomy Teams, all you need is an element of your subject that can be considered at two taxonomic levels. This is much easier than it sounds; just look at the picture of the buttons above for a simple graphic illustration, then download the resource below for all of the details.
