Conversations Instead of Grades. At the start of this year, I wrote a blog titled “Grading for Mastery and Redesigning My Gradebook,” which detailed my desire to rethink assessment in my classroom.

Conversations Instead of Grades

I was tired of students always asking me about points and grades, instead of asking me about how they could improve their skills. I wanted feedback and assessment to be an ongoing conversation. Too often students complete work at home in isolation. Then the teacher collects that work, takes it home, and grades it in isolation. #Teach2Teach - Home.

ECET2NJPA Call For Proposals. From Cyber Cafes to Tech Tastes – Journey with Technology. When I first moved to ISP, IT coaches (officially called Digital Learning Facilitators) would hold Cybercafes.

From Cyber Cafes to Tech Tastes – Journey with Technology

We ran three Cybercafes concurrently, and each Cybercafe had a theme, and a sequential, cumulative curriculum over several weeks. Examples of topics were iLife, Google Addons, iBooks Author, Research and Searching, Google Sites, Spring Cleaning your Digital Spaces, Creation Tools on iPad, etc. Sometimes we would have 3 participants, at other times 6 or more. We surveyed the staff before each set of new offerings to find out what they were interested in. Some people didn’t show up some weeks, others who were interested could not sign up due to conflicts with afterschool and other activities.

With the change in the makeup of the IT Coaches team and administration, Cybercafes fell by the wayside. A couple of weeks later, the stars aligned an a half kneaded idea popped up in my head. Tech Tastes are short, ten minutes sessions that take place every Wednesday and Thursday. Education Chats. The Risk-Taking Educator. The Life Of A Project from Steal Like An Artist ...
