This idea adapts the idea of an agile standup session for students in a classroom.
The standup could be held throughout the day, with a few students at a time (3-5) reporting, though all students will add post-its for next steps or things they need help for etc.
To make this managable students would self-select by gathering behind or on spots on the floor. For example blue questions marks for "I need feedback", red crosses for "I'm really stuck". Post-its would correspond to these, so even if not all students are heard in a single session, the teacher still has an indication of how they are doing.
Students would peer-award (and make) badges to give to each other. For example: a borrower-badge to give to a students that you borrowed an idea of. A thank-you badge to give to someone who helped you.
Having a regular standup session, maybe a few times a day, can help students:
- take risks
- build on ideas
- become critical friends and thinkers
- give and receive praise and celebrate
- spark curiosity
- peer-award badges
