Thanks... nice informative blog on administering Group Discussion in class room.
Group discussions have become integral part for organization to seek all the 21st century skills in the potential employee. If from the very beginning student understands the nuances of good GD and how group discussions help grow the personalities traits, I think many of the students will contribute to productive and good group discussions which ultimately will suffice the objective of teacher also of 'constructing learning curve in child'.
Thanks for the reply
Recently have got the opportunity to interact with children in workshops where the activities provided them the chance to get involved in discussion . It was heartening to find some schools involving the children in group discussion. these children exhibited great collaboration and team work spirit. Their project also displayed quality.
However major schools we saw the children were not aware of this process. Getting in groups was so difficult for them . It was really saddening to see that our schools are not focusing on these critical 21st century skills and people skills
Hope our interventions brings this change in the schools
There should be session on'Facilitating Group Discussion in Classroom' inbuilt in In-service and for that matter all training designed for teachers. The basic skill set and teh wjole idea of generating Group discussion environment is missing. The conceptualality of group discussion is not very well undersatood and implemented in the classrooms.
Students are involved by themselves in discussion which are not in proper shape or directions but still teachers don't observe this skill of students and involve them in designed group discussion activities.
In Flipped classroom scenario group discussions are one the main stay of promoting learning environment in classrooms.
