Activating Prior Knowledge

Digitability Lesson Plan Referenced Section: Guided Watching

During the Guided Watching section of the lesson plan, teachers can increase the number of questions asked before playing that day's new lesson video, thus increasing engagement opportunities and accessing students' prior knowledge. Teachers use this evidence-based practice to connect the Warm Up to the Guided Watching, giving additional attention to and providing context for the badge about to be earned together as a group.
