Session Description

In our 24-week action research, we utilized Google Classroom as a teaching platform and integrated peer tutoring strategy to facilitate sixth graders’ writing in Taiwan. Students were assigned into either tutors or tutees in the researcher’s class. In Google Classroom, tutors needed to assist tutees in summarizing and writing platform. Students as tutors needed to correct tutee students’ works and give them feedback. With Google Classroom, teachers could monitor students’ learning process and evaluate students’ learning outcome. Students were found to hold a positive attitude toward using Google Classroom and their reading comprehension was improved. We would like to share our experience with those who are interested in using Google Classroom to promote effective learning.
