All good education is special education: Assessment, Accountability & Data Use conference

As a keynote speaker, Rick Stiggins, a man who has dedicated his life to creating quality assessments, was a phenomenal and inspirational speaker. Rick descended upon the education community by referring to it as an institution that is wrongly believed to have quality assessments. He respectfully challenged the audience to rethink the way we design assessments and wanted us to truly reflect on the purpose of assessments. Dr. Stiggins said it best: "decisions will be made based on these crucial assessments." Another major point that Dr. Stiggins made was that to be able to create a strong assessment, we need to set a clear purpose and target and create an assessment around it.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, April 15, 1:32 PM

All education is special education. This becomes true when we encounter each student and their particular learning as unique to them.

 

Rick Stiggins has been sounding the assessment alarm for a number of years. If he thinks schools, not education, have poor quality assessment that is problematic.

Change Magazine - March-April 2014

Change Magazine - March-April 2014 | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

In the twenty-first century, a high-quality, affordable postsecondary education is the key to both national competitiveness and individual success. So not surprisingly, public policymakers, students and their families, and business leaders all express a sense of urgency with regard to college policy and practice. This is reflected in the concern over rising costs, student debt levels, and the lack of alignment between college graduate skills and labor-market demand.


This urgency infused the 2013 summer announcement by the Obama Administration of a renewed federal policy focus on innovation in higher education. The announcement of a new college/university policy agenda, “Making College Affordable: A Better Agenda for the Middle Class,” highlighted the role of the developing technologies, institutional curriculum-design processes, and new delivery methods as keys to providing an excellent and affordable postsecondary education. MOOCs, flipped classrooms, learning analytics, and competency-based education (CBE) are given as specific examples of new approaches that can do just that.

Seguramente muchos de vosotros uséis el popular servicio de vídeos propiedad de Google, YouTube, prácticamente de forma diaria. Es más, probablemente otros tantos lo uséis como vuestra principal fuente de música desde Internet, pues cada vez se ha mejorado y facilitado la posibilidad de crear nuestros propios listados de vídeos (e incluso Google nos lo pone fácil redirigiendonos a vídeos de YouTube cuando buscamos información de grupos o canciones en el buscador).

The One Skill You Need to Excel in Instructional Design

The One Skill You Need to Excel in Instructional Design | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it
Instructional design is a multi-faceted discipline, and – let’s face it – a lot is asked of instructional designers (IDs). We need to have adult learning theory and learning models at our fingertips, be data detectives, sharp interviewers, and writers who can weave a story, not to mention detail-oriented, process-oriented, organized pros. Yet the one essential skill for IDs in corporate training and Learning and Development (L&D) is rarely taught in schools.

Public universities should use Open Source Software | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

Choosing to go open source is a big deal.  It means that when asking for help or new improvements you are dealing with a highly active and generous user community which enjoys helping instead of a corporation which needs to justify the expense of providing customer service by extracting fees either directly or indirectly (through workshops, "support costs", etc.).
