Increasing Student Engagement By Grading Backwards

Increasing Student Engagement By Grading Backwards | It and learning | Scoop.it

Students earn points (grades), gain levels (grades), and in a way, have leaderboards. There are class valedictorians and students are essentially ranked based on their grades when colleges are deciding who to accept.  Currently, the typical grading system in schools has students starting off with a 100 average, which slowly (or quickly, depending on the student’s performance) gets lower and lower as the student receives anything less than a 100 on any assignments, tests, etc.

This system is subtractive, i.e. as a student achieves anything less than perfect, they are punished with a decrease in score. A subtractive grading system punishes students for taking risks and stifles creativity. Students tend to be taught a specific way to perform a task, and if students try to problem solve in another way and fail (which is a core part of the learning process), they are punished with a lower grade. Therefore, students are less likely to try thinking outside of the box.

"Another Brick In The Wall" - Pink Flloyd

The Planetary Archives™ 's curator insight, November 17, 2013 12:12 PM

Our  education system is nothing more than child-care with some 

indoctrination thown in.


See/hear "The Wall" by Pink Floyd  (40+ years ago.)


Let the children play until they are old enough to decide what they are interested in learning. That's completely different than training them from Day 1 to "sit still, be quiet, and obey authority." Training a 5-year old to become a "worker" or 'Businessman"  is not education, but it may be child abuse.

Flipped classroom model gains steam on campuses - eCampus News

Flipped classroom model gains steam on campuses - eCampus News | It and learning | Scoop.it

Eighty-four percent of educators said the flipped model was a “better learning experience” for their students.

Ralph Welsh, a public health sciences professor at Clemson University, said that while there were more high marks on end-of-semester student evaluations, there was also a jump in low marks. This, Welsh said, showed that the flipped model had at least some polarizing potential.

“Most students want the recorded lecture, but if the tradeoff is not seeing the professor face to face, it might not be worth it for all of them,” said Welsh, who has experimented with the flipped classroom. “They liked it, but they still wanted to see the professor face to face in the classroom.”

10 Teacher-Tested Tools for Flipping Your Classroom - Getting Smart by Susan Lucille Davis - blended learning, digital learning, education technology, flipclass, flipped class, flipped classroom, O... | It and learning | Scoop.it

For the past couple of weeks, I’ve spent some time addressing my earlier commitments to flipping at least some portion of my Language Arts classes. (You can learn about my ongoing saga at “4 Ways Flipping Forces Fundamental Change” and at “Why I Haven’t Flipped…Yet”). Reading FlipYour Classroom by Jonathan Bergmann and Aaron Sams provided practical advice and a justification for flipping, Learning about the Stanford studies that suggest better results from flipping your flipping (that is, doing hands-on work in the classroom first, reinforced by flipped lessons at night) But, ultimately, what I needed to do was to dive in and try out some tools with my kids and my curriculum in mind. The unexpected result: I’ve had to acknowledge something I hadn’t really thought about — I am a video-phobe.

The Teacher's Quick Guide To Digital Scavenger Hunts - Edudemic

The Teacher's Quick Guide To Digital Scavenger Hunts - Edudemic | It and learning | Scoop.it
If you've got a smartphone or a tablet in your classroom, you're ready for the adventure to begin! By adventure I mean digital scavenger hunts.

 

Digital scavenger hunts should be carefully prepared so don’t rush into them. They’re fun and, if done properly, will get students excited to do another one. If instead students spend the entire time asking you, the teacher, questions … then it’s not ideal. Instead, make sure the hunt is planned out so that the students can only ask questions of each other. That’s likely the best way to keep the active learning process in high gear.

Melissa Marshall's curator insight, October 15, 2013 8:14 PM

Some great ideas here for engagement. A digital scavenger hunt is like the old WebQuest (oh no, now these are old!) where students follow a path to various clues. They can be very subject-specific or quite broad. I think it would be a good way of introducting a self-paced programme.
