21 Ways to Check for Student Understanding

21 Ways to Check for Student Understanding | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it

"The ultimate goal of teaching is to do just that – teach, not stand up in the front of the room and talk.

But sometimes it’s easier to talk than to teach, as we all know, especially when we need to cover a lot of material in a short amount of time. We hope students will understand...

The problem is, we rely on these tests to measure understanding, and then we move on. Few of us take the time to address weaknesses and misunderstandings after the tests have been graded.

How do you go about checking for understanding? Exit slips may be too late to correct misunderstandings. This post provides 21 suggestions on ways to check for students' understanding. A few of them are listed below. Click through to the post for more information on them as well as additional suggestions.

* Misconception check

* Peer instruction

WEAC's curator insight, May 2, 12:04 PM

These are all great, but I particularly like this one: 

3-2-1: Students consider what they have learned by responding to the following prompt at the end of the lesson: 3) things they learned from your lesson; 2) things they want to know more about; and 1) questions they have. The prompt stimulates student reflection on the lesson and helps to process the learning.

How I Became The Most Followed Nobody In Finland via @JaanaNystrom

How I Became The Most Followed Nobody In Finland via @JaanaNystrom | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it

@Jaana Nyström is a great curator and she just beat me to the punch :). When she shared her EPIC journey of using G+ to move from "nobody" to "somebody" I planned to blog about her amazing journey. The content and message was too good to be trapped in comments.

Read this post CAREFULLY as you may recognize where you are on Jaana's timeline of personal brand development. There are several "inside baseball" tips to pay particular attention to including:

* Don't worry about perfection, start publishing.
* G+ is an AMAZING and vastly under used tool (start there add more social nets later).
* No matter what, keep turning the crank (keep going) since the only sin you and your personal band can't recover from is NOT PLAYING.

Great stuff from an amazing curator. What lessons did you learn from Jaana Nystrom? What similar lessons have you learned as you create a meaningful personal brand?

Martin (Marty) Smith's curator insight, July 12, 2013 3:36 AM

Why Content Gets Shared
Turns out our gut instincts about content marketing are correct. The TOOLS we use and the content we curate and create make a difference in the amount and velocity of our social shares.

Tools such as Scoop.it and your blog are indispensible say the results from a 30 day in depth view of @ScentTrail mentions on Topsy. Type of content also matters.

Infographics, SEO and my trusty ScentTrail Daily Paper.li generate the most mentions. Friends also matter.

#4 on the mentions list is group tweets from friends with thanks or best wishes for the weekend. Staying connected and sharing are critical to successful content marketing.

Interesting bottom line is a confirmation of what all content marketers know to be true. Confirmation of the fact that content gets shared is in the numbers. I don't curate or create 30 pieces of content a day (well not on most days lol) and I've certainly NEVER created 66 (most mentions in a single day in this study.

These numbers confirm what we know - content gets shared and explains what types of content is most likely to generate shares and what tools to use to promote shares.

Brian Yanish - MarketingHits.com's curator insight, July 12, 2013 8:34 PM

Marty thanks for sharing this study. In the world of online social sharing we need to rethink of the role as content providers. 


My thoughts on how old content media producers need to evolve.


Interesting to see how newspapers, tv and radio are starting to figure out the "value added" model of internet marketing.  People will pay for digital content, and the great thing for the publishers is the low cost of distribution. Online marketers have done it for years using micro websites with targeted content and now apps. I don't see why a newspapers,etc. should be any different.

 

The way I see it is the newspaper and their website should be the teaser to the value added content. Right now it's like they tell the story and move on, then cry the blues, no one will pay us for our content. Now if they extended the content or partnered with someone (eg health or fitness) for value added content people would pay. 

 

The newspapers, tv, etc, need to become the advertiser of the content, instead of depending on advertisers to support the media.


They have a reader base that many bloggers would love to have, but they need to rethink the connections they make with the reader.

Martin (Marty) Smith's comment, July 13, 2013 4:23 AM
Great analysis by Brian. I go even a step further in Saving The News&Observer http://sco.lt/4rBAOH and suggest that newspapers become part of their own rehabilitation by embracing the CROWD in real time by throwing off their "we are here to guide you" ethos. The editorial-centric model is over. Brian's idea about promotion-centric is a good one, but I want more. I want these organization deep in the weeds on things so WEB marketing they can't NOT understand how DIFFERENT life is and will always be from that magic time when a newspaper could take down a President, we could only watch 4 TV channels and exciting programming was a show about a boy named Beaver :).

8 Tips for the Care & Feeding of the Reluctant Tech User | The Daring Librarian

8 Tips for the Care & Feeding of the Reluctant Tech User | The Daring Librarian | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it

The Daring Librarian provides a great post on how to assist the "reluctant tech learner." A key point she makes is the need to have them learn "how to do something with a project about which they're personally passionate."

To gather this information she went out to her Personal Learning Network and asked for suggestions. The post includes 8 tips (which includes the one above) as well as:

* Show and Tell - providing a "digital petting zoo"

* Providing lots of praise 

* Small Steps (as in mini session)

It will probably come as no surprise that many of the techniques suggested also work in the classroom.

The Secrets Of Top Students - Edudemic

The Secrets Of Top Students - Edudemic | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it

"Top students aren’t made, they’re born. After effortlessly absorbing whatever the teacher throws at them, they spout it back on tests and watch the A’s come rolling in. They have exceptionally high IQs, making it next to impossible for the rest of the class to compete with them. They’re the ones who leave exams early and breeze through the most complex material in the syllabus. They are eggheads, nerds, geeks, and their success is the result of innate talent and ability."

Do you believe the attributes above are what is necessary for top students or do you think these are misconceptions? Stephanie Weisman, author of "The Secrets of Top Students", interviewed 45 other "outstanding students – including Rhodes scholars, Goldwater scholars, Fulbright recipients, a National Spelling Bee Champion, and students in top law and medical schools – on how they achieved academic success." (She was also a top student and she discusses the challenges she had in school in this post.)

The answers the students gave might surprise you. What is most important?
