gradingrubrics.html Evaluation Rubrics and the Web Evaluation rubrics list and sometimes further describe the criteria by which projects and other assignments will be evaluated. They are also called scoring, assessment and grading rubrics. The World Wide Web or Web adds significant value to the study, creation and use of scoring rubrics at every level of the learning process. Rubrics are very important in helping students do their best on more open ended assignments, assignments that are not evaluated by short answer tests such as fill-in-the blank, multiple choice and true-false questions. Grading rubrics also have an inherent weakness. Another effective approach in using grading rubrics would be to have students serve as editors and proofreaders to assess each other's assignments and projects, using the grading rubric to determine if all assignment elements are in place and at an adequate level of development. The web adds real value to the use of rubrics in many different ways. Bibliography Books

VAK Learning and Communication Style Eye Movement Chart Neurologists tell us that the eyes are the externalization of the brain. That is, the way one moves their eyes when accessing information can tell us a great deal about their learning and communication styles. These neurological patterns are set by the age of eight and reflect the internal sensory processing preferences (learning strategies), of the individual. These eye movements cross barriers of culture, gender, and language and are highly observable. Accordingly, you can learn to watch someone’s eye movements to reliably ensure that you are effectively communicating with and persuading them. You might use this to: • Detect a Judge’s VAK learning style and persuade them more effectively than your opponent; • Get a read on how a jury is receiving your message; • Improve communications with a colleague or spouse; Learning How to Observe Eye Movements by Quizzing Someone Else or Having Someone Quiz You - Questions That Produce Mental Searching 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10.

Super Teacher Tools Happy Teaching, Happy Learning: 13 Secrets to Finland's Success - Education Week Teacher Published Online: June 24, 2014 By Sophia Faridi Most educators have probably found themselves wishing for a simpler solution to the hardships and inequities of the U.S. education system. I recently got the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to attend the Oppi Festival in Helsinki, Finland, with a group of seven U.S. educators to learn more about the Finnish school system and the lessons it might offer. During the trip, our group had the chance to visit several innovative schools. While I can’t say that I uncovered some mysterious holy grail of education, I did discover something that I had never considered before: the importance of happy teaching and happy learning. The teachers and students that I observed were happy. It made me wonder: “What makes school in Finland such an enjoyable experience for students and teachers?” Students in Finland work together frequently, and the material they study is important to them. —Sophia Faridi 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13.

Like any phrase, “student-centered learning” is subjective and flexible–and only useful insofar as it ultimately supports the design of learning experiences for students. With that in mind, here are 4 principles of student-centered learning to consider as you design curriculum and instruction.

Formative - A Possible Replacement for Infuse Learning There is certainly not a shortage of online tools for distributing quizzes to students and watching their responses in realtime. Formative is the latest online quiz and feedback service that I have tested. Formative provides you with a place to create online classrooms. Your students join your classroom by entering the assigned class code after registering on the Formative website. Once your classroom is established you can begin distributing assignments to students. Assignments can be as simple as one question exit tickets like "what did you learn today?" The best feature of Formative is the option to create "show your work" questions. Applications for Education When Infuse Learning shutdown earlier this year many teachers were disappointed by the loss of a great tool that allowed students to draw responses to questions.

Many students around the world(and their families) get into big debt or have to work over sixty hours a week in order to afford an education. Two thirds of the US college seniors who graduated in 2011 had student loan debt, with an average of over 27 000 USD per person. Reading those statistics I can't stop thinking about those words from over 30 years ago: "With mass education, it turned out that most people could be taught to read and write. Isaac Asimov died in 1992, but if he could see the opportunities that the Internet is giving us in XXI century he would probably grin from ear to ear.
