The Evolving use of Badges in Education

The Evolving use of Badges in Education | Education | Scoop.it

Badges, trophies, medals and other physical rewards have turned into a business and schools pay a good deal of money for these physical rewards. The digital system of rewards is either free or costs very little. Today students can learn online to supplement traditional class learning and get rewarded for their efforts.

"Project-based learning (PBL) — an educational approach in which students work together to solve real-world problems — is redefining how many kids learn. Vine, a social video app purchased by Twitter, is growing in popularity — and fast. What happens when the two collide? PBL teachers across the country intend to find out."

District 204 to help shape national teacher assessments

District 204 to help shape national teacher assessments | Education | Scoop.it
Education experts have chosen Indian Prairie School District 204 to take part in a national field study that will help shape teacher assessments and provide examples of excellent teaching in videos, which will be used by educators nationwide.

 

First, researchers will study how a widely used teacher-evaluation tool called Charlotte Danielson's Framework for Teaching aligns with expectations of teaching the common-core education standards. The standards are being implemented in 45 states. Many states, including Illinois, are also tying teacher evaluations to student achievement. By the 2016 school year, Illinois teachers will be assessed on student performance.

 

Second, the project will pull together free resources, including videos of District 204 teachers, for all teachers as they work to implement the standards in their classrooms.

Could be worth investigating this tool for e-portefolio

Lisa Cooper's curator insight, July 16, 2013 3:33 PM

This looks like a great way for my students to find information about careers that are of interest to them.

Tamra Dollar's curator insight, July 19, 2013 5:35 PM

I also like that the ePortfolio can follow the student and allows each teacher to see prior work writing samples to get an authentic look at where the student is performing. It is a built in "needs assessment!"
