  • 1. Supporting Groupwork with Online Learning Kelli McGraw http://kellimcgraw.wordpress.com/
  • 2. NSW DET G&T Policy
    • Teachers may use a variety of teaching and learning strategies to support gifted and talented students, including:
    • various grouping strategies
    • accelerated progression
    • extension activities within and across classes
    • enrichment
    • negotiated contract work
    • open-ended questions, activities and assignments
    • online learning
    • hypothesis testing and problem solving
    • individual research and investigation
    • opportunities for peer tutoring and assessment
    • mentors with specific expertise.
  • 3. Renzulli
    • Renzulli identifies three traits of giftedness
    • above average though not necessarily superior general ability ;
    • high level of task commitment or intrinsic motivation ;
    • and creativity
  • 4. Grouping Strategies
    • Term 1: Friendship groups
    • (groups designed a magazine cover)
    • Term 2: Special interest groups
    • (students selected a novel to study and worked with others who had selected the same novel)
    • Term 3: Mixed-ability groups
    • (based on pre-testing of student knowledge of familiarity with video games)

  • 11. Key Observations: Groupwork
    • Friendship groups can limit creativity unless scaffolding e.g. jigsaw grouping is used
    • Special Interest groups foster intrinsic motivation, but organisation must be flexible and the product must be clear
    • Mixed Ability groups require a high level of task scaffolding e.g. use of specific ‘roles’; mandatory communication etc. to foster group cohesion
  • 12. Key Observations: Online Learning
    • Engaging students in online spaces encouraged dialogue and creative thinking
    • Online communication enabled (most) ‘quiet’ students to have a ‘voice’
    • Groups appreciate an online space that they can take ownership of and be accountable for
    • Students appreciated timely, personalised feedback
    • Students require boundaries and guidelines for successful online working
