Sharing Work Empowers Students for the Future

Teacher Insights

Allowing students to share their work, not only with each other but beyond the confines of the classroom, makes them better students, say experts. Holly Clark, an educational strategist from the US says, “They learn best from each other.”

Clark said she often uses Flipgrid for this purpose, a tool that allows teachers to upload discussion-style questions and students to answer by adding video responses.

“You got to hear what students are thinking. You got to know where they are in the learning process,” Clark says. “In two minutes flat, I can hear from every kid in my classroom; that’s what 2018 has brought us." 

According to Clark, teachers no longer need to spend weekends doing lessons plans and wondering how to check whether the students understand their work. Instead he uses the digital tools for that. 

Sharing the works makes the student more group cohesive and adaptive to any situations. Experts have been advocating for more group assignments and activities.
