    Hey there everyone, very new to this site so i am sorry if i am posting this in the completely wrong place lol, please guide me to where i am meant to post this if i am wrong.

    I am completely stuck on this question:
    Apply skills and techniques for monitoring learners’ response to learning activities

    This has to be an observation, but i am stuck on what skills and techniques i am meant to be using?? Does this mean i am to sit next to the student, explain their objectives and see how they get on? I am utterly confused

    Can anyone help? o_O

    Not having done this qualification, I'm sure there will be people here with a much better idea of what's required than I have - but I think it's about your observation and questioning skills (asking open and higher order questions) to check understanding of the teaching and the task. I would think the section is also finding out about your skills to extend or modify an activity if appropriate. Good luck!
