Giving Student Feedback: 20 Tips To Do It Right

Giving Student Feedback: 20 Tips To Do It Right | Assessment in education | Scoop.it

"As teachers, it is essential that we make the process of providing feedback a positive, or at least a neutral, learning experience for the student.

 So what exactly is feedback?  Feedback is any response from a teacher in regard to a student’s performance or behavior.  It can be verbal, written or gestural. The purpose of feedback in the learning process is to improve a student’s performance- definitely not put a damper on it.  The ultimate goal of feedback is to provide students with an “I can do this” attitude."

We continue to use technology to reinforce 19th century teaching practice' | Assessment in education | Scoop.it

why [has] technology, to date, had very little impact on improved learning outcomes? This could be because we continue to use technology to reinforce 19th century teaching practice to meet out-dated assessment models. Most of the world’s curriculum and assessment systems are based around fact recall rather than actually demonstrating that you have learned something and can deploy it within a problem-solving situation.

"Another Brick In The Wall" - Pink Flloyd

The Planetary Archives™ 's curator insight, November 17, 2013 3:12 PM

Our  education system is nothing more than child-care with some 

indoctrination thown in.


See/hear "The Wall" by Pink Floyd  (40+ years ago.)


Let the children play until they are old enough to decide what they are interested in learning. That's completely different than training them from Day 1 to "sit still, be quiet, and obey authority." Training a 5-year old to become a "worker" or 'Businessman"  is not education, but it may be child abuse.
