Talk:OER4Schools/Mixed pace groupwork with and without ICT
Summary: Martha suggests slow learners will be helped by mixed pace groups as they will help each other. Judith rebukes her learners from laughing at each other; she thinks mixed pace groups can work well but government policy is for pace groups. Priscilla confirms this policy, and the requirement to devise differentiated work for the different groups. This differentiation by group is challenging for teachers to prepare work for, likewise higher achievers may laugh at peers and teacher must intervene .... other agree that mixed groups are preferable. The exams are the same for everyone too!
