VTaL - Mahi Tahi and Manaakitanga : Tuakana-Teina

Tuakana - Teina Collaborative Teaching Strategy

Level 2 students completing their first project were starting to fall behind with specific tasks within the project.  In order to support students to catch up on their work, I teamed up the Level 2 students with some of the Level 3 students from last year who had completed the standard in 2017.

The Level 3 students directed the Level 2's to the exemplars in the DigiTech Level 2 Google+ Community.  The Level 2's followed the instructions in the Workspace, and using both the support of the Level 3 students, as well as the exemplars in the Google+ Community, completed and submitted tasks for Activity 1 in the project.

  1. It is interesting that you mention Google Plus Communities as my students LOVE scrolling through past years. I have been using the same communities since we started working that way so there is a good "back collection" for them to browse through.

    1. Yes I agree about the G+ Communities. It's been quite instrumental for students to gain an understanding of the tasks, by seeing exemplars created by their peers from previous years.

  2. Very detailed and even though students falling behind on specific tasks the photos say a different message. They all look engaged and busy with their own work.

    1. Thanks for your feedback Carol. I think the students found this collaborative learning activity really useful. I just need to build on the work that the students have done, to enable them to cross the line with this project.
