Quote: technology hasnt changed students AfL: Golden Rules Assessment for Learning: My Golden Rules Evaluation and assessment are not the same. My husband worked with a colleague who 'assessed' final exam art-work based on the standard of the class. He was gobsmacked when, during his first 'standardisation' meeting for IGCSE art, she laid out all the pieces across the room. She had decided, subjectively and without consultation of the criteria, that 'Sue' had produced the 'best' work, therefore she got an 'A', whilst 'Peter' was the 'worst', so he got the 'U' grade. Since then, I have continued to think carefully about the purpose of assessment and how we assess with particular focus on Assessment for Learning (AfL). Comment OR grade. The advice of my Principal is to choose one or the other - feedback or grade - but not both. The feedback is part of the journey, the grade is the destination. Summative before formative. I believe we should, as Dylan Wiliam asserts, embed formative assessment into our everyday practice. Assessment is a dialogue.
How To Use Google Drive and Evernote To Create Digital Portfolios The following post is written by Greg Kulowiec & Beth Holland from EdTechTeacher. You can hear them both present at the April 10-12 EdTechTeacher iPad Summit in Atlanta! As iPads proliferate in schools around the world, and students as well as teachers create more and more content, questions about what to do with all of those learning objects have arisen. In other words, how can we curate this content into portfolios for assessment as well as reflection. Portfolio Curation with Google Drive Source: The Verge With recent upgrades to the Google Drive app on the iPad, it is now a viable solution for student portfolios that can be created in their entirety on iPad. The Google Drive app now allows for the creation of Documents, Spreadsheets, and Folders. The video tutorial below explains the process of creating, uploading and sharing within the Google Drive app on an iPad. Using Portfolios to Make Connections with Evernote Evernote provides one possible solution to the challenge.
TES article: edu needs to plug into to Web 2.0 Reflection and revision opportunities: Check! PBL Guidance states that learners should be allowed two formative assessments for each summative assessment. The final product for The Octopus's Garden Project is a presentation to the Principal of the school with design ideas for a 21st century classroom that will enhance teaching and learning in the school (post on this coming soon). Learners will also have to recount their learning in a report following the presentation. To prepare for these assessments, we worked on:- - note-taking skills - writing instructions - persuasive language - organisation - effective slide-making - recount writing - report writingCheck Points: Presentations Formative 1: team presentations on areas of expertise Formative 2: draft final presentation to soundboard Summative: final presentation to SLT Every team completed a peer assessment form (on a Google Form) created from the co-constructed presentation rubric when watching the films.
Miten teen verkkokyselyn tai -lomakkeen Googlessa? - Sosiaalisen median hyvät käytännöt Ennen kuin voit tehdä kyselyjä ja lomakkeita Google Drivessa (ent. Google Docs), sinulla pitää olla Google-tili. Verkkokyselyn vastaukset kerääntyvät automaattisesti tietueiksi laskentataulukkoon. Palvelussa on käytössä kaikki yleisimmät kysymystyypit. Lisäksi voit määrittää kyselyyn osioita ja sivunvaihtoja. Voit jakaa muokkaus- tai katseluoikeudet myös muille, joilla on Google-tili. Lomakkeen kysymystyypit Kyselyn tekeminen Kirjaudu Google Driveen (tai luo ensin Google-tili, mikäli sinulla ei sitä vielä ole). 4. 5. 6. Mikäli haluat kysymykset pakollisiksi, valitse "Tee tästä vaadittu kysymys". 8. 7. Voit upottaa lomakkeen nettisivulle ja jakaa linkin esimerkiksi sähköpostilla: Lisää toimintoja > Upotus. Kysymysten muokkaus jälkeenpäin Mikäli jostakin syystä joudut muokkaamaan kyselyä: 1. 4. Vastaukset omaan sähköpostiin Mikäli haluat käyttää lomaketta esimerkiksi tilauslomakkeena, muuta lomakkeen asetuksia laskentataulukkonäkymässä: Työkalut > Ilmoitussäännöt. Vastausten tarkastelu

While it has been derided by educators for decades as incapable of truly measuring understanding, and while performance on such exams can be noticeably improved simply by learning a few tricks, the multiple choice question may have a larger, less obvious flaw that disrupts the tone of learning itself. This is a tone that is becoming increasingly important in the 21st century as access to information increases, as the updating of information happens more naturally, and as blended and mobile learning environments become more common. Tone Learning depends on a rather eccentric mix of procedural and declarative knowledge -- on the process as much as the end product. The process of mastering mathematics, for example, is served as much by a consistent process of practice as it is the practice itself. This all emphasizes the value of uncertainty in learning. Uncertainty There is nothing wrong with being uncertain. Beyond Either/Or
Google: first MOOP (Massive Online Open Pedagogy) Seek and you will find As a kid I never imagined, when watching Star Trek, that I really would have a little device on which I could ask any question, and it would almost certainly give me a meaningful answer. Science fiction came true and I have one next to me now and its main tool is Google search. Montessori kids Brin was born in Russia and educated in the US, Page is from Michigan.

Educational Technology and Mobile Learning: Cool Graphic on Learning in The 21st Century As I was checking the backlinks to Educational Technology and Mobile Learning I came across this resource from ISDIPED. The resource is basically a syllabus somebody designed for teaching about Media Selection. It really impresses me how well-structured and properly referenced it is. More specifically I liked the table featuring the difference between traditional learning and 21st century learning; something I have talked about in depth in my 21st Century Skills Teachers should Have post. I am sharing it with you below together with the quotation I came across in that PDF. Just to let you know , I am working now on an e-Book on The 21st Century Learning which I will share with my readers here in Educational Technology and Mobile Learning once it is ready.
