20 Ways To Provide Effective Feedback For Learning - contributed by Laura Reynolds While assessment gets all the press, we often misunderstand effective feedback for learning. When feedback is predominately negative, studies have shown that it can discourage student effort and achievement (Hattie & Timperley, 2007, Dinham). In my experience, the only thing I knew is that I hated public speaking and I would do anything possible to get out of it. As a teacher, most of the time it is easy to give encouraging, positive feedback. Tips to Craft Good Multiple-Choice Questions Assessments are an essential part of instruction. They are used by the instructor to test student’s understanding of the subject matter, to prompt learners to think more about course content before moving forward, and to identify the learning curve of the students in order to direct them towards remedial information (if required), in an online training.

A trainer can easily test different stages of learning outcomes (recall, comprehension, application, analysis and synthesis) with the help of well-crafted MCQ’s. The following five tips may be helpful as a guideline for writing better MCQ’s for your elearning courses: Write short and clear stem
10 Teacher Picks for Best Tech Tools in Pre-K to 12th Grade If there was ever a year for teachers to beg, borrow, and steal good ideas, this is it. All good teachers know this is how we get better, and this is a curated list of tech tools that I have begged and borrowed from others—and I didn’t have to steal any of these as there has never been a year when teachers were more generous. Based on my own teaching of college students as well as the responses of 1,461 virtual learning academy participants—pre-K to 12 teachers and administrators—to survey questions on impactful tools that I conducted from May to December 2020, and over 70 webinars and virtual learning sessions I’ve conducted in that time, these are the top teacher-tested tech tools I have identified. My learning has happened with my own students and through my own mistakes, and I received great ideas from educators across the U.S. and around the world. I will continue to use these tools and recommend their use regardless of student level or how we deliver education moving forward.

Know Students Better: A Visual Guide to Formative Assessment Tools When teachers know their students well, they can build strong connections that lead to better learning. Knowing students’ interests, strengths, and weaknesses help teachers tailor learning experiences for their students. Formative assessment involves the teacher collecting information about what students know, don’t know, and want to learn. This information takes many forms, including observations, exit tickets, discussions, games, and quizzes. 50+ Tools for Differentiating Instruction Through Social Media Imagine a world where resources were limited to what was found in the classroom or the school closet known as the "Curriculum Materials Room."
