Using 'Self-Initiated Transfer' To Drive 21st Century Assessment

Using 'Self-Initiated Transfer' To Drive 21st Century Assessment | Information Literacy & Inquiry Learning | Scoop.it

"Testing is a major challenge in education.

Agreeing on what’s to be tested and how it’s to be administered is a matter of much debate. It’s also a big business...

[Common Core testing may include] adaptive computer-based testing to the existing assessments forms, which in many states include short-written responses. While efforts like these continue, there remains a chasm between the progressive vision of a 21st century learning environment, and a decidedly 20th century assessment style.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, September 1, 7:40 PM

If the goal in education is to graduate students whom are 21st century ready (a century we are already 14 years into) the question of appropriate testing comes up. This post explores this issue and shares what may be taking place in a classroom and how it is not necessarily testable with paper and pencil. Therefore as educators we need to "promote self-initiated transfer." 

The post is split into three sections. The first section looks at testing today. The second section provides "a picture of 21st century learning." The third section explores the challenge, the fact that in theory we are teaching one way and assessing a different way (and as they refer to it in the post, we may be teaching 21st century but we are using an assessment tool that is 20th century). The final section explores one possible solution.

There is much to ponder on in this post which may lead you to think of ways to help students take ownership of learning how to effectively transfer knowlege.

Kelly Christopherson's curator insight, September 2, 2:59 PM

Indeed, much of the learning students will do isn't testable by paper & pencil. Computer-based testing doesn't measure the skills students will need for their future.

Collective Consumption: Social Media And Active Learning

Collective Consumption: Social Media And Active Learning | Information Literacy & Inquiry Learning | Scoop.it

"It comes as no surprise that the Internet grows exponentially by the minute, and in some cases by the second. It’s too late to turn back the clock, and it’s no wonder that our learners view school regulations of social media archaic and restrictive. We see the weekly chats with frustrated teachers who try to get colleagues to see the benefits of Twitter; yet this is not even the most popular media with our tweens, let alone young people under thirty."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, June 11, 9:45 PM

Students use social media. Do they know how much social media is used (and do teachers know this information)? This post shares two great websites that provide data on how social media is being used today. Both are interactive, but in very different ways.

The Internet in Real Time provides an up to the second look at 23 social media tools, letting you see how quickly data is generated and you can also see "the real-time accumulation of wealth."

The second resource is an infographic Social Media 2014which looks at ten social media websites and provides "facts, figures, numbers and statistics from 2014." A few are below:

* 23% of teens consider Instagram their favorite social network.

* 100 hours of video is uploaded on YouTube every minute.

Given this data many of us may be questioning policies at our schools. Is it time for public schools to look at how social media is being used by their students when they are outside the walls of the school and understand that social media provides a platform that we could use to deliver lessons?

This post explores this issue and the final sentence reads "The collective consumption of knowledge has changed because of technology, and learners need to be able to use it, search it, and share it." What are your thoughts on this?

Charlotte Walters's curator insight, April 11, 8:24 AM

Hello, Year 9! 

Here is an excellent resource regarding questions that a critical thinker asks whilst reading. I believe this will be incredibly useful for you as you develop your chapter summary for chapter four of The Outsiders which is due at the end of this week. Remember - you can present your chapter summary in any way you wish - a story board, a mind map, a Prezi, a short multimedia presentation, whatever takes your fancy. 

As a critical thinker, you will need to develop the skills to read between the lines of what the author (in this case, S. E. Hinton) is describing through the text. This infographic provides you with some questions to help you get into the role of a critical thinker, and get you started on your project.

While I am now seeing less emphasis on "differentiation" and more emphasis on "personalized learning" as eduspeak, this is definitely worth reading so that you're on the same page as your teachers and admins. The library, by definition, is a differentiated space and that's a good conversation starter...

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, August 13, 4:46 PM

The key point for me was the first one. This is an old idea which is making another comeback. With all due respect to Carol Ann Tomlinson, others i.e. Dewey before her made us aware of the need to work individually with each student.

 

It does not take anything away from Tomlinson's work and it is important to keeping it on the front burner in School.

 

@ivon_ehd1

Susan Grigsby @sksgrigsby's comment, August 14, 4:13 PM
Agreed, Ivon. Effective teachers have always known that not all students learned or grasped the same way. Perhaps the important point is to remember this fact in our current climate of "same test, same day, same results" thinking.

Web tools to support inquiry-based learning

Inquiry-based learning is an active learning process, based on identifying relevant questions to research so that the student can develop knowledge about or create solutions to issues and problems.

Web tools allow students to engage in collaborative and interactive learning. All phases of inquiry learning can be adequately addressed through a wide variety of web-based tools and applications.

What is curation anyway, and how can it be used as a tool for student and teacher learning? This essay will investigate what curation is and the different contexts it is used in. Why is it important; who are the curators, what motivates them and what makes a great curator? What processes and tools are used for curation and what digital literacies are required for successful curation? It will conclude with an investigation into ways teachers can use curation both with and for their students and as a tool for their own professional learning and a brief look at some curation tools.

Do you use iPads in your school? Do you work with Bloom's Taxonomy and/or SAMR? Are you interested in seeing how you might combine Bloom's and SAMR using specific apps? If so, click through to this post.

The post takes apps and organizes in three categories:

* Consumption - which includes Knowledge and Analysis (split into Activity and Gamification)

* Collaboration - which includes Application and Synthesis (split into Assessment and Cloud Storage)

* Creation - which includes Comprehension and Evaluate (split into Multimedia & Design and Multimedia Texts)

Then read on and see how you might take these same areas and apply them to SAMR (Substitution, Augmentation, Modification and Redefinition).

This is worth a look even if you do not have iPads. The ideas of placing work into the three Cs of Consumption, Collaboration and Creation may be applied to work that students do, with or without technology.
