Session Description

If you’re finding ‘think, pair, share’ is getting a little tired and are looking for new ways to maximize participation with MINIMUM PREP., come and explore this collection of ready-made active learning strategies and templates. Whether your ‘classroom’ is now online, F2F, or hyflex, these activities will give you quick ways to activate attention and interest, provide a focus for discussion, or help consolidate learning – both individually and collaboratively. Some templates we’ll play with include: hexagonal thinking, RAFT, Thin Slides (from EduProtocols), booksnaps, and CitationReps.

This is a hands-on session for which you’ll need a Google account (with the Drive and Slides apps updated if you’re on a tablet). Although we’ll be using Google apps, this collection can be easily adapted for a Microsoft environment.


Sue Hellman

Instructor, Columbia College Calgary

I’m a retired high school and adult education teacher who in January, at 70, decided to take a part time contract teaching grade 12 math in a fully remote setting. I’m living proof that (1) what doesn’t kill you does indeed make you stronger, and that (2) old dogs certainly can learn new tricks and have fun with them as well.
