Diving Into Project-based Learning: Designing the Rubric |Philip Cummings | Technology "Empower Education" | Scoop.it
Perhaps the most difficult aspect of project-based learning for me was figuring out how I was going to assess it.

Mack James's insight:

Standard based assessment is great for teachers to see specific skills students need help on, specific concepts, provides clarity and guided instruction that is focused on student learning

QUODL - Quality of Online & Distance Education: The Rules of eLearning: Learners need to learn how to learn

QUODL - Quality of Online & Distance Education: The Rules of eLearning: Learners need to learn how to learn | Technology "Empower Education" | Scoop.it

LearnerAgain I think the ‘cover-all’ term should be learner.  I think most of the other terms place the learner in a secondary position to the teacher, which is often not the case.  How many of us have experienced that moment when our children or grandchildren show us how to use the latest technology, play the latest game (online or physical) or use the latest terminology?  More recently, the idea of the teacher/student relationship has been ‘adjusted’ by the advent of online learning and the opening up of education generally to older learners.  Perhaps universities are the last bastion of the tutor/student relationship but even here there is a move towards mentorship – “the guide on the side” is now a well-developed idea in higher education. 

So what is the role of the (online) learner?

How to Annotate and Save links into a Google sheet using chrome’s extension citable

How to  Annotate  and Save links into a Google sheet using chrome’s extension citable | Technology "Empower Education" | Scoop.it

In this age of internet the research has become very very easy than previous ages. Information is available on internet in numerous forms. We can access it from anywhere at anytime through any device, PC,laptop, tab or even on mobile. Google is the one best resource to find solution for any problem or to conduct any kind of research. But the problem is researching on internet is easy but keeping track of what resources we are using such as what websites we viewed, what articles we read is a headache. One easy solution is Bookmarking the web that we are using as our source. But it is not enough to just bookmark a webpage for keeping track of each source. In this situation there is a Chrome extension called Citable. It solves this problem by allowing you to save web page’s link with notes to a Google Sheets.
