Vikten av effektiv feedback - sluta sätt ut betyg! I mitt förra inlägg skrev jag om hur du kan ge snabb och indivduell feedback genom att använda Google Formulär och Flubaroo . Idag fortsätter jag skriva om vikten av feedback, hur du kan arbeta smartare och bli mer effektiv i ditt arbete. Inför dagens text har jag läst en riktigt bra bok i ämnet- Återkoppling för utveckling av Helena Wallberg. (Gothiafortbildning 2015) I Helenas bok finns många tankeställare, men bäst av allt väldigt tydliga och konkreta exempel på hur du kan arbeta med feedback i ditt klassrum. Mitt eget mål för läsåret 2015/2016 var att utveckla sättet jag ger feedback på. Jag har läst en hel del litteratur i ämnet så som boken ovan men också tex Handbok i formativ bedömning av Dylan William (Natur&Kultur 2015). Vi lärare måste alltså undervisa eleverna om hur de använder sig av feedback och att tanken faktiskt är att de ska lära sig något av de kommentarer de får. Själv har jag fastnat för att ge muntliga kommentarer genom att jag skärminspelar elevernas uppsatser.

5 Simple Tips For Nervous And Overwhelmed Online Students First, congratulations on taking this huge step! You’re a new online college student! Secondly, take deep breaths. We all start the online learning journey with different backgrounds, expectations, goals, and confidence levels. No matter where you are in the world, you’ve been given an incredible opportunity to earn an online degree. Here’s my favorite quote for new online students: If you are not willing to learn, no one can help you. As an online student for 10+ years and an online instructor for 3 years, I know the challenges you’ll face in the online learning arena. To ease your worry and build your confidence, here’s five simple and easy tips to help you navigate your first few classes: 1. It always amazes me when my students glaze over the class announcements. Instructors don’t waste time creating announcements for fun. The bottom line is read all the announcements your instructor sends you. 2. Most adult online learners are juggling a job and family, which is hard enough. 3.

Encourage critical thinking by turning your class into a Socratic Seminar With so much talk about the Common Core standards and truly increasing our student’s argumentative powers and critical thinking skills, some teachers are starting to think critically themselves about how best to engage students in thoughtful debate and discussion around texts they need to analyze anyway. One method, called the Socratic seminar, challenges to students to formal discussions about a text based on open-ended questions. Throughout the exercise, students must alternately employ good listening, critical thinking, creativity, and rhetorical prowess. The Socratic style of discourse lends itself quite well to establishing critical thinkers due to the fact that Socrates believed that enabling students to think for themselves was more important than filling their heads with knowledge. Select a text To start, consider engaging the class in a guided reading of a novel with compelling themes and issues. The questions The set up The discourse Relinquishing control can be difficult!

London's first official tube map showing how long it takes to walk between stops There have been a few attempts at drawing up walking maps of London Underground.

For example, Leicester Square to Covent Garden takes just four minutes, Charing Cross to Embankment takes three minutes, and Cannon Street to Mansion House takes four minutes. A spokesman told the Evening Standard: ‘What we have seen is that people are desperate for this sort of thing, so we have created it. MORE: ‘Car thief’ cuts convertible Porsche roof to try and nick it Gordon Innes of London & Partners, which promotes the capital, added: ‘The new Walking Tube map is a great new resource for visitors to London. ‘Although the Tube is the most used transport method by visitors in London, stations for many of our top attractions are within walking distance of each other.
