William Emeny's curator insight, October 31, 2013 7:38 AM

The biggest step forward in maths-specific AFL I have seen in years. This is a real game changer for maths teachers (and students). A brilliant tool for assessing pupils' knowledge and misconceptions on topics.

 

Well done Mr Barton!

Joanne Amos's curator insight, November 2, 2013 2:51 AM

A fantastic resource to assess student learning and identify misunderstandings. 

Rhianna John's curator insight, June 2, 2014 10:36 PM

Diagnostic questions is a great resource designed to allow the teacher to get a quick, accurate feel for the students' understanding of a given concept. Based on students’ answers, the teacher can then direct their teaching accordingly, making diagnostic questions a very powerful tool in Assessment for Learning (AfL).

MOOCs for Teachers: Coursera Offers Online Teacher Training Program | MindShift

MOOCs for Teachers: Coursera Offers Online Teacher Training Program | MindShift | education | Scoop.it

Berry supports the idea of MOOCs for professional development in theory because he’d like to see teachers be able to choose and direct their own learning. But he thinks success hinges on skilled virtual facilitators who both know the subject matter and how to foster high quality discussion and communication online in order to make it work well.

collaborating, sharing and evolving with MOOCs 

Robin Kay's curator insight, May 8, 2013 9:23 AM

Interesting move - I would watch this one closely.  MOOCs seem better than large lecturs and in Coursera are much better designed.  Not sure I would want to be taught by a teachers whose only credentials were from Coursera, but I can see other higher education areas being better served by MOOCs.

Paul Rudd's curator insight, July 29, 2013 11:13 AM

MOOCs are interesting to look at in relation to finding possible best practice in setting up online courses
