5 Assessment Strategies Every Teacher Should Know

5 Assessment Strategies Every Teacher Should Know | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

"Most teachers and current textbooks offer varied approaches to the material to be learned so the teaching can be brain-compatible with the varied student learning styles. It is only logical that respect for these individual learning styles be incorporated into assessment forms."

Christopher Resetar's curator insight, February 13, 2014 12:00 PM

Like other comments on this scoop, I really like this article, especially items #1 and #2.  I really like those options because they are unconventional options that I still think would provide an appropriate level of challenge for the students as well as provide an alternative form of just a simple pencil and paper exam.  I think option #1 is more feasible for elementary school because it would allow students to work on skills that are more age appropriate like consolidation of information and looking for quality source material.

Ruby Day's curator insight, February 14, 2014 3:45 PM

Sounds like some great ideas to stimulate critical thinking

Audrey's curator insight, March 5, 2014 6:51 PM

All 5 assessment methods involves  students leading the learning. Asking the students questions based on their reading of the topic helps their analytical  skills and allows them to be in charge of their learning.

Addressing Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs with Technology

Addressing Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs with Technology | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

Technology is way too often given a bad rap by administrators and educators as a distraction or a hazard for students.  When technology is integrated intentionally with foresight and with intention of addressing specific growth-oriented goals, it increases the potential to help students learn, develop, and grow in unique ways.  It can be used to help address the needs as described by Maslow.

I like the authors integration approach. I also propose that Maslow's principles be viewed more directly from the perspective of today's technology and advances in brain thinking and neuroplasticity, to affect more permanent changes to one's thinking.
