Deepening Learning by Enhancing Classroom Talk
Dialogue can lead to significant gains in learning (Effect size 0.82, from Murphy, Wilkinson, Soter & Hennessey, 2009). However, classroom talk is all too often dominated by teachers: Gad Yair found that teachers talk 70-80% of lesson time; that the amount they talk increases as the year level rises and the numbers of students in each class decrease! (Yair, 2000). During times of remote learning things rarely improved; in fact, in some cases, it worsened still.
So, this session will show exactly how to engage students in dialogue – whether online or in the classroom. It will cover strategies that create interaction and engagement with learning, providing opportunities for students to move from surface-level knowledge to deeper understanding.
• Learn how dialogue engages and motivates learners of all ages so that they understand key concepts more rigorously.
• Understand how to make lessons more active, meaningful, challenging and collaborative.
• Be able to facilitate high quality dialogue that encourage students to take more ownership of their learning, share their thinking and form reasoned - and reasonable - opinions.
• Know how to create the right conditions for truly exploratory dialogue to flourish, encouraging learners to become more open, more collaborative and more reflective.
