Collaboration between students is great for student’s learning because they can not only learn from each other but bounce ideas, energy and passion off each other. At the start of the year, I’ll list the topics we’ll be covering during the year and get students into groups to create a website in which they’ll work on in a meaningful and creative way. For example, the topic is on organisms. Students can talk about saving animals, or how to be sustainable or what we all have to do to protect the environment at school. All these can be in the form of videos, written text, games and whatever the students are passionate about. It is like a formative assessment.
