HOW AM I GOING TO SET UP COP IN THE SCHOOL???

Firstly, I will start to set up COP in my classroom as it is
the smallest community in the school. So, I can arrange the seating arrangement
in the classroom. I will ensure that the pupils sit in group instead of seating
alone or in pairs. This is important so that they can have the opportunity to
communicate and discuss with their friends. Besides that, this kind of
arrangement also creates the sense of togetherness thus will encourage the
pupils to help and cooperate with each other. This also can help the timid and
shy pupils to become more socialize and participate in COP.

Apart from that, I also can use the technology to set up COP
in the school. I can use the windows live, Facebook or other social network to
connect the pupils in the school. These social network will act as the platform
or place for the pupils to share their ideas and opinions with each other. I believe
that the pupils will not encounter any problem in using these social networks
as they are really familiar with all of them.

SO, HOW TO SUSTAIN COP IN SCHOOL???

For the seating arrangement in the classroom, I will make
sure that the group consists of pupils from different background, gender and
also ability. This diversity of pupils will make the group become lively as
they will have different opinions and point of view on a certain topic. So,
this will make the communication between the group members become more motivating
and interesting. I also can mix the pupils from different classes to work
together in group so that they can mix and mingle with bigger community in the
school.

For the usage of technology the school, teacher can raise an
issue or topic which can attract the pupils to comment on and pour out their
ideas. Or, teacher can create an award to encourage pupils to use the social
network. Teacher can give award, for instance for the most active user of the
social network. This can motivate the pupils to use the technology thus join
the discussion in the social network and contribute to it.

 

No matter what method that teachers use to set up COP in the
school, the most important thing is that they must ensure that COP exists in
the school.
