Second Chances and Mastering Material

March 12, 2015

Check out this insightful blog post from Ken Halla, a social studies teacher and department chair from Fairfax, VA, on helping students master material  by giving them second chances.  Ken motivates his students by giving them multiple chances to take an assessment again, as well as the opportunity to turn in homework multiple times to improve their grade. The key to this strategy? Using technology to allow more time to work one-on-one with each student.

Ken is also the author of Deeper Learning Through Technology: Using the Cloud to Individualize – check out his book here!
