Presentation of the Year Speak up! Transforming Classroom Discussions by Robert Appino MS Technology Facilitator at Saigon South International School Some students enjoy speaking up in class and others don't? Why is this? How can we promote more students to share their ideas? This workshop will briefly present research on face-to-face and virtual discussions. It will provide classroom examples and encourage educators to try different ways to reach their students through different modes of class discussions. Participants will apply Robert Appino their learning in this session by engaging in both face-toface and virtual discussions. Additionally participants will reflect on the uses of face-to-face and virtual discussions and discuss ways to start using this in their classrooms.
