Frontal teaching (also known as “Chalk and Talk”) has become a "dirty" word as educators are urged by experts to move away from traditional classroom practices towards student-centred learning activities. As much as we try to avoid it, making lesson presentations is still inevitable, particularly for content heavy subjects.

When we have to make a lesson presentation, how do we hold the students’ attention and increase their engagement? How do we check that the students have learned?

When we ask a question, how do we get every student to respond? How do we check in an instant, a full class of students for their understanding?

This "hands-on" session will cover how we could transform our lesson presentations into an engaging and interactive learning experience that is centred on the students. We will explore the use of AfL tools such as Pear Deck and Formative, and discover how we could dovetail thinking questions so as to increase engagement of the students and ensure learning takes place. (Both Pear Deck and Formative work seamlessly with Google Suite). Besides the tools, this session focuses on the application of AfL principles and feedback strategies for effective teaching and learning.

A Live demonstration shall be conducted to allow participants to experience first-hand, the unique features of Pear Deck and Formative, both of which are exceptional for the purpose of presentation and assessment for learning. Participants are encouraged to have a laptop or smart mobile device for this session.
