I extracted these information:
Some students may never talk or post for various reasons. For example students may be shy, reserved, or introverted, they may be dealing with a learning disability, anxiety, grief, depression, medical challenges, or autism. Even the classroom climate may make them feel isolated or uneasy. Their jobs may leave them perpetually exhausted. They may feel uncomfortable expressing themselves in certain language or they may come from a culture that frowns on students who speak out publicly.
I was reading a research work where white and green cards were used for rewards; yellow and red for penalties. Students having an outstanding performance in the class were rewarded with white cards, while green is given for actions relevant to helping authorities. The research paper states, “Ultimately, this paper demonstrates that the positive behviour of the the students can be reinforced by the implementation of a colour coded card system, or a ticket system or any other system set up in the classroom.” Wadee Alhalabi and Mobeen Alhalabi, February 2017.
Research also suggested, “ The system can be implemented with relative ease in schools and universities in order to obtain better class management. It can be improved by using digital technologies such as a digital board on the front wall of the classroom”. This will be good for whole class management, but who could think of using it on individual students.
Yesterday, I was surprised, during my lesson that the ‘silent’ ones felt comfort in displaying the colour coded cards and the ‘code’ was the red was used for ‘No I don’t understand and need help’. Goes beyond saying, the green cards were used for , good as gold, ‘I understand and speeding on with my work’. Yesterday I used them for my algebra lesson in a year 10 ‘Future Now’ class. I was humbled with the newly acquired experience. I am attaching a short clip (I edited) from Sir Ken Robinson and a few displays from the research paper.
