Day 2 is all about the Kagan structure, Stand Up, Hand Up, Pair Up. This structure is very similar to that of the SIOP strategy, Think-Pair-Share. As this is a very basic structure, you may be wondering, how in the world could I use technology as part of this structure? Well, the technology component of this structure is actually incorporated after the structure is complete. I know, maybe a bit confusing, but stay with me for a moment.
After students have paired up, there is discussion that is a vital part of the success of the structure, engaging students, as well as opportunities for learning, coaching, and praising. As the teacher serves as a facilitator in this part of the structure, allowing him/her to move around the room, there isn't always time to hear every conversation that is taking place. Although this structure allows for flexibility and independence, some of the conversation would be very helpful to the teacher to guide future discussions or re-direct students.
