Mind Streaming

Students work in pairs to extract what they know about a topic or learnt from a lecture.

How it works:

  • Student A talks for a minute about the topic/lecture while Student B listens and encourages Student A. Thereafter the roles reverse.

Mind streaming is preferably used as a component of think-pair-share.
