Rome - Online Course. 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. This traditional workflow does not encourage face-to-face conversations about where each student is at in terms of his/her journey towards mastery. Too often the time a teacher spends leaving comments and edits on student work is never used to improve those pieces.

For the last 3 class periods, my students have been engaged in either a Station Rotation lesson or independent work on their digital portfolios. #Teach2Teach - Home.

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.
