During station rotations students move to different learning centers. At these stations, students engage in activities that extend or reinforce learning objectives. Learning stations allow teachers to differentiate instruction and provide opportunities for cooperative learning.
Goal: Promote cooperative learning and engagement through differentiated instructional activities
Thinking about using Actively Learn for Station Rotations? Here are some tips:
- To differentiate instruction based on student needs, create multiple versions of the same assignment with varying levels of support. Use additional notes and “Extra Help” to create the most scaffolded version of the assignment first. Then, duplicate the assignment and revise it as needed.
- Use the Assign to Individuals feature to assign specific readings to certain students or groups.
- Allow students to freely revise their answers until graded. This will improve students’ productivity and reduce the need to constantly monitor responses as students are working in stations.
- Examine assignment data and provide feedback to students after station rotations. Establish a routine where students review previous feedback before beginning a new assignment on Actively Learn.
