Kimi Anderson – Tutor – SIBT
“Do you understand this concept? Does anyone have any questions?” Have you ever asked your class questions like these, received a room full of shy smiles or nods, and moved on only for it to become very obvious that a number of the students had not grasped the basics and further explanation?
While getting your students to pay attention can be a challenge, ensuring they have understood key concepts can be even more difficult. Listening does not equate with understanding, and as teachers, the sooner we can get a real feel for their actual level of understanding, the more we can help them succeed as students.
In this event, Kimi Anderson will share some simple but effective strategies that teachers can implement to better gauge students’ level of understanding in the classroom. She will share some practical tips using various technology platforms and some useful approaches to group activities.
