Herramientas para la evaluacion  en enseñanza online

Listly para compartir recursos de evaluación para el profesorado.

Lori Wilk's curator insight, February 2, 2014 12:08 AM

I will definitely have some feedback after reviewing these tools to create online assessments. Creating assessments is an important first step because you don't give the prescription on how to fix a business before you've figured out what the problem are-that's why you begin with the assessments- they become your base starting point of reference. This article has tools to help you create those online assessments.Let me know which are your favorite tools.

Schoology vs. Edmodo; How Schoology solved my iPad workflow woes

Schoology vs. Edmodo; How Schoology solved my iPad workflow woes | Ict4champions | Scoop.it

"In a previous post from December http://ow.ly/mr5pa , I wrote about how I was (sadly) switching from Edmodo http://edmodo.com/ (my long-time LMS love) to Schoology. http://schoology.com/ ; Of the 25 schools I support, 33 classes of students are using a Learning Management System. Since my December revelation, 26 have switched to Schoology and the remainder stayed with Edmodo. I myself maintained both an Edmodo group and started a Schoology course for the twice-weekly after school Student Innovation Team I lead. This, combined with the 33 classes, was a great way for me to learn more about the differences between the two platforms. I've learned a lot, and wanted to share it with you! Below is a quick overview of what we've learned when it comes to Edmodo vs. Schoology."

I have always been a big supporter for Schoology as a LMS.

Marita Diffenbaugh's curator insight, July 5, 2013 3:55 PM

I like the feature of being able to grade the discussions. I love Edmodo, however, Schoology looks like a great solution for secondary classes and their workflow.

Adventures in credentialling: OpenBadges, Open Badges and un-gamification

I have to admit that I have avoided OpenBadges until now, mostly through rightly or wrongly correlating them with gamification. I am not big on -ification of any kind but take particular issue with the addition of superficial motivation layers over unchanged, non-game-like content and the awarding of badges just for the hell of it (or under the guise of ‘engagement’). Which means I have mostly discounted the existence of OpenBadges.

 

Until now. Most of you are aware that for the last while I’ve been dabbling in wholly online delivery of professional development via Coffeecourses (which I realised to my dismay the other day is probably an accidental MOOC of sorts). However one sticking point with it has been the ability to track completion and offer credentialling.

Everything Teachers Need to Know about BYOT Policy | Ict4champions | Scoop.it

In a typical BYOD classroom, the array of devices varies tremendously as students work through common tasks. Some students might have more than one, shifting attention between a tablet and smartphone as assignment needs dictate, while other students use a single game device, laptop ornetbook. Students might film each other with phone cameras solving problems at a whiteboard, then post the video to a classroom wiki to share.Other students videoconference with peers in other classrooms about acollaborative project.

Goede tips van Mike.

- Ga uit van wat je leerlingen wilt leren en kijk dan of technologie iets toevoegt. Niet? dan niet inzetten. - Ga niet voor het laatste nieuwe product. Kijk of jouw "apparaat" kan wat jij met leerlingen wilt ondernemen. Misschien wel de beste tip: hou vol. Als iets niet werkt, probeer dan iets anders.
