I think it is a helpful strategy too. It reminds me of doing jigsaw groups. Where you have a "home team" of maybe four students (or however many depending on readings and class numbers) and then each member goes to a different "expert group". In the expert group the students work together to read about a topic. Then the students go back to their home team and they teach their other group members about what they learned. It is a really great strategy to help get a lot of information/content covered relatively easily and painlessly. I'm trying to think of ways to incorporate technology into a jigsaw format in the classroom. We skyped with each other, I wonder if the kids could blog or something like that?

    I have to say I really liked splitting up the reading with our tech groups then discussing it. Saved soooooooo much time, and instead of just reading I got to interact with my peers.

      I liked it too! It was definitely easier and more fun. Looks like we'll be doing it again tomorrow! :)

      I loved that we got to split it up and instead of spending all that time reading those articles I got a further understanding of all articles and we got to discuss the articles together.

        They always say you learn things better when you have to teach it to someone. I felt like I had a better understanding of my own article when I had to explain it back to you guys.
