Virtual reality headsets like the Samsung Gear VR, Oculus RIFT and HTC Vive also offer a more detailed experience. Liven up your classroom or playtime, and get students excited about learning geography, history, and science with virtual reality.

Evaluation Within Project-Based Learning

Evaluation Within Project-Based Learning | Cool School Ideas | Scoop.it
Because PBL is about more than learning content, PBL teachers should investigate and experiment with multi-model strategies for assessing their students' learning skills.

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, April 1, 6:09 PM
I used rubrics and continuously edited them. I shared them with students so they could learn how to assess their progress and give me feedback about their learning and the rubrics. Rubrics are an opportunity for continuous conversations about teaching and learning.
Chris Carter's curator insight, April 2, 8:00 PM
Evaluating the steps and processes, as well as the final product, allows rigor and guidance for students. An important reality is that rigor need not be for high-stakes grades. Frequent, low- or no-stakes formative assessment can tap into the power of retrieval-based learning while PBL creates the opportunity for Design Thinking implementation. These two concepts can be realized in the evaluation of PBL.
Kathy Lynch's curator insight, April 2, 9:48 PM
Thx Chris Carter! This is the piece I have always struggled with, the overall project grade...how do you grade a creative product like a painting? This confirms my feelings that you grade the skills and processes that went into the creation.
