Tips for A level students. Lesson ramblings for teachers (helpful ideas too!)
Author: Aimee Horsley
I am an A Level Philosophy, Ethics and Religious Studies teacher. I have taught between 80 - 150 R.S students for the past eight years. I also manage a small team of Coaches dedicated to enhancing Teaching, Learning and Assessment. Two years ago I completed a MEd (Masters in Education) focusing on Dialogic Learning. After huge success on SlideShare, with my power points being viewed over a quarter of million times, I started to think that I have so much more to share that may be of interest to other students and teachers outside my college. So this Blog will document my on-going findings, reflections and tips for both teachers and students.
When I first started using Padlet as a social distancing strategy in the classroom, I posted about the benefits of using it for group work (see Social Distance Group Work: Padlet). Since then it has transformed my online remote teaching and enhanced my students learning.
I thought I would do a quick recording on how to use padlet and the different facilities it offers.
I use Padlet for:
Sharing lines of argument:
Image board to comment on:
Sharing revision posters:
What I would like to try:
1. Assessment: students post introductions for feedback, post part of an essay for students to comment on (peer assessment).
2. Homework task i.e. watch this video add your thoughts
3. Try the different boards available (only tried Wall so far).
If you have used Padlet in any other ways please comment and share.
