Tina Jameson's curator insight, December 14, 6:48 PM

When so many new technologies promise to transform education - what role is left to the teacher?  Why is the teacher still important?  This powerful clip effectively presents compelling arguments for the importance of teaching students in a 'social' classroom setting - with reference to 'how' students learn; making the best of all types of tools to aid what goes on 'in the student's head'.

Your Rubric Is a Hot Mess; Here’s How to Fix It. - Brilliant or Insane

Your Rubric Is a Hot Mess; Here’s How to Fix It. - Brilliant or Insane | Differentiation Strategies | Scoop.it

by Jennifer Gonzalez

 

"Instead of listing all the different ways a task deviates from the target, the single-point rubric simply describes the target in a single column of traits."

 

Jim Lerman's insight: Interesting idea, but I think using this technique to develop an actual rubric might be better. As in this case, start with statements about level 3, which represents attainment of the standard. Then, to the right, elaborate on  examples of advanced performance, and to the left, examples of performance needing improvement.

Dan Miller's curator insight, November 19, 8:44 AM

I think this is an interesting idea worth tinkering with. Perhaps though it would be better to list the criteria for a 3 or meets standard and let the students describe what would be short of standard or exceeding standard. Perhaps even letting them submit a completed rubric with their rationale and descriptions of why they hit, missed or exceeded in certain areas.

7 Ways to Deal With Digital Distractions in the Classroom | Edudemic | Differentiation Strategies | Scoop.it

To educators who embrace new technologies wholeheartedly, digital devices are a powerful tool for creating an engaged and individualized educational experience. To those that are a little more hesitant, digital devices seem more like a quick route to Instagram and Facebook — that is, to distractions that interfere with the educational experience, rather than boosting it.
