Creating Assignments That Work for Digital Learning Environments -- THE Journal

Creating Assignments That Work for Digital Learning Environments -- THE Journal | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it
To create assignments that work the focus must be on process, not task. Many constructivist learning theorists in the past have agreed on this, yet it remains a challenge. It's tempting to identify tasks, as they can be analyzed more easily, they're quantifiable and, therefore, gradable. Process-based learning is messier, takes longer to evaluate and, by definition, allows for many more variables than simple tasks. I do not mean that tasks are never to be assigned or evaluated. I mean that tasks are simply that--tasks. They do not necessarily demonstrate the learning of the student in the wider sense of the word. To shift the focus to process, however, we need to change what we value in our grading.

10+ Tips and Tools To Keep Teachers Organized | ESL Library Blog | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

Learning online can be an incredible journey but at some point you may feel overwhelmed with the surplus of information and resources. You may feel very excited about a resource you come across, but want to access that resource at some other date. Perhaps, you are teaching your students how to research online and they want to bookmark and create notes on websites. Many free webtools exist to help us quickly save, bookmark, categorize, store, and share information. These tools are very advanced and store our information in the cloud. Our information and the way we organize it is stored in cyberspace so that we have access to it when we connect to the Internet. Below are ways that I use this technology to keep me organized wherever I go. I hope the following tips and resources will help you and your students keep organized.

That is, virtually every educator will agree that we should be asking our students to think more, and to communicate their thoughts more, but they think this can only really be done via essay-type assignments, assignments which are both time and resource consuming. Thus we instead turn to the sorts of assignments that one can use a Scantron to mark, assignments that almost invariably focus on content rather than cognition.
