Okay, so I am more in the "rubrics kill creativity" camp, but Grant Wiggins has some very good points here about how to construct a quality rubric (assuming that's not an oxymoron ;-)

Nice statement of one BIG issue in online or blended ed:

However, there is still one piece that is missing from a great blended learning environment: engagement! As an experienced online teacher of both K-12 and higher education students, I am familiar with the challenges of engaging students in virtual work. Luckily, the blended learning model still demands some in-person, brick-and-mortar learning, so there is a unique opportunity to use this structure to engage students.

Mary Kraus's comment, March 13, 2013 11:44 AM
Engagement is key in any learning environment. Once we become introspective in the part we as educators have played in creating an "engagement gap" perhaps we will then begin to see progress in the "achievement gap."
