So the idea of a collaborative ‘read aloud’ is all teachers are reading the set chapters during that particular week… preferably finishing by the Wednesday/Thursday so some discussion and sharing can take place Thursday / Friday.
Feel free to have some ‘slow chats’ via Twitter using #NZreadaloud(no.) throughout the week. Any of you teachers or your students can tweet a question or thought for discussion at any time.
The sharing which takes place at the end of the ‘set’ Chapters may be in the form of a twitter chat, some online sharing using Tackk or Padlet, tasks/questions posted in Edmodo groups, or possibly a Google Hangout.
This is about being flexible and using what works for you in your class with your kids. I have found it is engaging to use a variety of collaborative tools with our kids for this.
Here is my TeachMeetNZ presentation which explains #NZreadaloud in 3 minutes (or almost!)
Below is the Google Slideshow I presented at #TeachMeetNZ july 18th 2015.
How does it function?
Below is an overview of who does what, as well as the various interactions that exist within the world of Edmodo.
