Assessing Student Learning - five practical guides

Assessing Student Learning - five practical guides | Primary School Topics | Scoop.it

After a decade of rapid expansion in Australian higher education, student numbers have grown considerably in many courses and subjects, especially at the undergraduate level.

 

Larger class sizes pose significant teaching challenges, not least in the assessment of student learning. Perhaps most troubling, large classes may limit the amount of feedback provided to students.

Designing Children's Play in the Digital Age

There are two ways to design play for children in the digital age, especially if your game is a product that you want parents to buy to support the learning and development of their children.

 

You can either: guess or observe.

 

Guessing is where you imagine what children need, you look at the research on paper, you think about your childhood or your children's experience and you develop an app, a digital learning environment, a toy, a puzzle that you believe will be appropriate for children.

 

This is a reasonable way to develop a product, it is also very hit and miss. We see a lot of apps being developed in this environment and not enough testing or iterations of an idea. We see simulations of toys and many copies of successful interactive tools. It isn't surprising many fail to meet both the creators' and parents' expectations. Young children, well they just don't give poorly designed learning tools a second chance.

 

With observation you need more patience ...

Storybird: Providing a Tangible Outcome

Storybird: Providing a Tangible Outcome | Primary School Topics | Scoop.it

My fondest memories of school are of the occasions on which I made stuff. When I think about what other aspects of my learning I enjoyed most, I always come back to the basic principle of creativity. Getting me involved in creative tasks that result in tangible outcomes was one of the ways my teachers ensured that I remained engaged and enjoyed the process of learning.

Increasing Young Children’s Contact With Print During Shared Reading: Longitudinal Effects on Literacy Achievement

Increasing Young Children’s Contact With Print During Shared Reading: Longitudinal Effects on Literacy Achievement | Primary School Topics | Scoop.it

In the last decade, an emerging body of research has explored using the shared-book reading context to increase preschoolers’ print knowledge. The motivation to increase children’s attention to print during storybook readings is based on evidence indicating that preschool-aged children very rarely look at or talk about the print during adult–child shared reading, even when the storybooks contain very “print-salient” design features

Teaching Metacognition

Teaching Metacognition | Primary School Topics | Scoop.it

"Metacognition is a critically important, yet often overlooked component of learning. Effective learning involves planning and goal-setting, monitoring one's progress, and adapting as needed. All of these activities are metacognitive in nature. By teaching students these skills - all of which can be learned - we can improve student learning. There are three critical steps to teaching metacognition:

 

Teaching students that their ability to learn is mutableTeaching planning and goal-settingGiving students ample opportunities to practice monitoring their learning and adapting as necessary"

New Adventures in Professional Development | The Road to Redefinition: Teaching with iPads and Android mobile devices | Primary School Topics | Scoop.it

"The SAMR model describes the progression educators make with technology from simply “substituting” analog tasks with digital tasks to “redefinition” which entails changing teaching and learning to the degree results were inconceivable before the invention of the technology. Investigate the progression and explore practical examples of how real teachers are accomplishing this with iPads and other Android devices."

Patrick Ward's curator insight, July 24, 2013 5:44 PM

For some time technological potential has been outstripping our imaginations' ability to process and apply it; unless we unleash our thinking, we will not be able to take full advantage of all that technology has to offer. Can we continue to apply current (or even outdated) teaching theories to an environment that is defined by an exponentially increasing rate of change? Should pedagogy always inform the choice of technology or is a more adaptive approach required? Can pedagogy evolve to adapt in step with technology? Can we as teachers?
