The Answer Pad | The Graphically-Based Student Response and Assessment System | The ePub Generation and digital textbooks for future learning. | Scoop.it

The Answer Pad is a student response system, so of course we have the typical select response question types that can be pushed out to the students. M/C, T/F, Yes/No, Fill in are a given. What makes us unique is the graphical nature of the tool, the templated backgrounds that come with The Answer Pad and the built in digital portfolio.

Dean Mantz's curator insight, May 20, 9:20 AM

I appreciate this share from Nik Peachey via his Tools for Learners page on Scoop.it.  Nik is one educator I would highly recommend folks follow on Scoop.it.  I truly appreciate his philosophical and pedagogical posts. 

 

As Nik points out in his summary, the feature that allows The Answer Pad to stand out from resources like Socrative and Infinite Learning is the graphing tool.  I see this feature being big in the math, science, and CAD classrooms.

In addition, the common-core-aligned tests being developed by the two state consortia, PARCC and Smarter Balanced, will debut next spring. Driscoll said NAEP will continue to be the "independent verifier" of how students are performing nationwide.

"Everybody is going to look at those [PARCC and Smarter Balanced] results and say how do we look compared to NAEP?" he said. "We're not going anywhere."

Dewey's questioning of the efficiency models and the economic aims that schools not focus on is important. Larry Cuban has written about school-education reform for some time. What we are experiencing is the continued deformation of school being passed off as education.

"When we were in our senior year of college and not yet married,  I recall my husband asking one of our major English professors what he should do to improve his vocabulary in preparation for taking the GRE.  This professor did not suggest a weekly vocabulary quiz or vocabulary flashcards.  No, this professor suggested my husband read even more and read widely.  So, he did.  He began reading both nonfiction and fiction with more fervor."
