Discussions in Schoology

I’ve been using Schoology with my VCE Vis Comm students for the last couple of weeks. I was excited when I discovered the facility to be able to create discussion topics within Schoology and have the facility to grade them.

This week I discovered the power of online discussions with Year 11 students. One student was posting to the discussion. With a bit of prodding I was able to encourage more details from the student.

The instant feedback gave the student much needed support to expand his responses and discuss our topic in more depth. This lead to more discussion in the classroom and more support for his fellow classmates.

We will be using discussisons once a week in VCE Vis Comm. 

I’ll let you know how it progresses.
