Looks like this will be fun - you ask the question out loud and they provide their responses on their devices which appear on the big screen.  I like that.  Things to consider, you can't really add text - just select numbers, yes/no and average.  You can add text for a question if you wanted to but needs some thought to ensure discussion

Assessment, Choice, and the Learning Brain

Assessment, Choice, and the Learning Brain | Educational readings | Scoop.it
The growing field of educational neuroscience, converging developmental psychology, cognitive science, and education, can help teachers and school leaders rethink how they approach assessments. While some of its initial findings merely support what educators have intuitively believed, it is also challenging many assumptions and providing new insight into best educational practices, especially regarding assessment.

I want to do a PhD on Educational Neuroscience, any suggestions? Not for the money, but for the learning and helping educators part!

Jazmin Reyes's curator insight, February 13, 2014 2:45 AM

Everyone is afraid of getting up on stage and giving a speech or what ever they need to do in front of an audience. These kind of tips are helpful in every way possible especially when someone is nervous. Knowing that we need to just breathe is an important thing. These skills can allow us to get better in our presentations.

Journal That Published Facebook’s Study Raises Ethics Concerns – The Ticker - Blogs - The Chronicle of Higher Education

Journal That Published Facebook’s Study Raises Ethics Concerns – The Ticker - Blogs - The Chronicle of Higher Education | Educational readings | Scoop.it

The editor in chief of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, the journal that recently published Facebook’s controversial research on its manipulation of users’ news feeds, is raising concerns about how Facebook collected the data.

The study was conducted by the social-media giant and co-designed by researchers at Cornell University. It involved manipulating what users saw in their news feeds to measure how the changes would affect the mood of their own posts. The study has come under fire from privacy advocates and others who said Facebook exhibited questionable ethics in conducting the experiment.

On Thursday the journal published an “expression of concern” by Inder M. Verma, its editor in chief.

“Based on the information provided by the authors, PNAS editors deemed it appropriate to publish the paper,” he wrote. “It is nevertheless a matter of concern that collection of the data by Facebook may have involved practices that were not fully consistent with the principles of obtaining informed consent and allowing participants to opt out.”

The journal added in a statement to The Washington Post that the declaration was meant to acknowledge concerns about the study, but that it does not intend to investigate further.

The 6 Types Of Assessments (And How They're Changing) - Edudemic

The 6 Types Of Assessments (And How They're Changing) - Edudemic | Educational readings | Scoop.it

Testing, especially any sort of standardized testing tends to get a bad rap. Teachers complain that they spend too much time teaching to a test. But assessments do have value, and an important place in our learning structure. By measuring what students are learning, we as teachers can look at how we are approaching different subjects, materials, and even different students. The handy infographic takes a look at different types of assessments and their attributes and questions. Keep reading to learn more.

Benefits of Online, Face-to-Face Professional Development Similar, Study Finds

Benefits of Online, Face-to-Face Professional Development Similar, Study Finds | Educational readings | Scoop.it

Researchers found similar effects on student learning and teacher behavior regardless of whether teachers took part in online or face-to-face professional development.

 

Fishman said that administrators and policymakers should see the findings as further evidence that online teacher professional development, while no silver bullet, can be a viable alternative to the traditional model.

 

"There's some hesitation on the part of teachers who think that online [professional development] is somehow less valuable to them because of a lack of personal connection," Fishman said.

 

"I think this study may make them a little more optimistic."

Teachers are really ready for this.   Receiving some of your PD via online means is less expensive and equalizes the participants.  For many teachers this what they have been waiting for.  I say let's grab a 'holt' of this and go.
