Collaborating Teaching Digitally!

Teacher Insights

The digital age has made it easier than ever to collaborate with teachers far and wide. The days of being limited to chatting up a colleague for a couple of minutes in the staff room or sharing resources at a subject-specific meeting in your district are over. Now teachers can share their own researches and lesson plans with each other using different tools.

Google Docs and Slides documents allow teachers to create a resource together or to share resources they already have. Teachers who teach same curricula from across the country can contribute to this. This virtual platforms will help the teachers to go through other strategies which other teachers are adapting to teach the same lesson.

Google classroom is an effective tool which the teachers can use. In a larger school this strategy could be used by multiple teachers teaching different sections of the same course. It would allow for more consistency in how the course is delivered to students, as well as provide an opportunity for students to benefit from more than one pedagogical perspective as multiple teachers contributed to the delivery of the course.

Teachers can try out these novel digi- learning strategies for collaborative teaching, which will lessen the burden of each teachers and will be more creative as so many creative heads are putting their work behind this.
