27 Simple Ways To Check For Understanding

 

Checking for understanding is the foundation of teaching.

Whether you’re using formative assessment for data to personalize learning within a unit, or more summative data to refine a curriculum map, the ability to quickly and easily check for understanding is a critical part of what you do. (Which was the idea behind our post last March, “10 Assessments You Can Perform In 90 Seconds Or Less.”)

Six Scaffolding Strategies to Use with Your Students

Six Scaffolding Strategies to Use with Your Students | 21st century skills | Scoop.it
What’s the opposite of scaffolding a lesson?

 

Let's start by agreeing that scaffolding a lesson and differentiating instruction are two different things.

 

Scaffolding is breaking up the learning into chunks and then providing a tool, or structure, with each chunk. When scaffolding reading, for example, you might preview the text and discuss key vocabulary, or chunk the text and read and discuss as you go.

 

With differentiation, you may give a child an entirely different piece of text to read, you might shorten the text or alter it, and you may modify the writing assignment that follows.

"In this era of global competition, test scores are used as the primary benchmark to call out which countries will produce “successful” students. Knowing that American students are competing against a global pool of the best and brightest has led education leaders to focus more on how they score on international tests compared to students from other countries".

Look at the qualities not measured by assessment...consider how these variables affect the learning environment. Consider the negative impact of a 21st century learner, teacher and administrator with learning assistive technology. Try to understand the "big picture" of the changing landscape of education and the social aspects of learning. "One size does not fit all" regardless of the learning environment and human social interaction will always be needed in the learning process.

Richard Platt's curator insight, December 8, 2013 11:40 PM

(from the Curator of IoT & Wearables): We've stayed away from many academic's re: how to enable students to be better at problem solving and innovating, (because most academics think they already know what innovation and complex problem solving is all about and well not to put too fine a point on it they just don't),  

 

We do take issue wtih the status quo of academia.  Obviously we have strongly held views on engineering education and problem solving / innovaiton, but they are warranted and justified.

 

We see most academic work in the area of innovating, problem solving / problem finding and more specifically in complex problem solving in the domain of engineering  to be broken., biased and prejudicial  

 

Nonetheless we do give credit in this post by Mia MacMeekin as it is a move in the right direction, we just don't see it going far enough to make problem solving and problem finding cool or effective enough for students to really be able to do anything significant with when it comes time for them to contribute.  Sorry we call it as we see it..
