…the next 31 Day Game starts May 1st.
32 cooperative learning experiences will compete in a Professional Learning Game. The question is, “Which of the two is a ‘more effective’ cooperative learning experience?”
Learning experiences are arranged into suggested groupings of pairs, triads, groups of four, and whole class. Use your creativity to modify, adapt, and apply to any subject or different grouping configuration.
We hope that many of these learning experiences will be familiar; they may also be a timely reminder, or just a great little strategy that you could use right about now, in May.
Whether or not you have the time and energy to hit the ground running each day in May to actually try the two competing learning experiences, by participating in the 31 Day Game you will become familiar with a multitude of websites and ideas.
And what if we run another learning experience challenge in August with some of the top finishers plus more ‘start the year’ strategies?
Well, we need you to play, participate, comment, share, and tweet. Yes, you will need a Twitter account (takes 5 minutes) and just follow these simple instructions.
You will see some ‘tweeting’ there already. Once you have your Twitter account, join us! Here’s how:
1) Go to www.twitter.com then log into your account.
2) From your home page, type #31daygame, write the strategy that you are voting for and a short message why.
3) Then hit “tweet”.
4) When you go to back to the home page on 31daygame.net, you will see your tweet! We will know you are on board with us.
Your ‘tweets’ will be mostly your vote and reasons on which of the two is a ‘more effective’ cooperative learning experience. But you can also share experience, ask questions, make suggestions or comment. Visit the Education Video Challenge page on the site for a sample of how this plays (as well as all the links to some great videos; in case you missed the first 31Day Game…click on “Here are the results”.)
Mark your calendars.
Commit to 5 minutes of clicking on some informative websites and a quick review of a cooperative learning experience.
Decide. Which of the two have you tried with success, or which of the two would you like to try, or which of the two gets your head nodding?
Tweet your vote.
Participate in the second Professional Learning Game: the 31 Day Game.
If you miss the start, or any day along the way, you can still be in the game! Jump in any time, and no one is disqualified if “life” distracts you for a day or two.
