5 great Formative Assessment Strategies for teachers

5 great Formative Assessment Strategies for teachers | Teacher's corner | Scoop.it

Formative assessment strategies in the classroom provide both teachers and students with invaluable information about what students understand, and what they don’t. These ungraded assessments are valuable guides for students to help them enhance their performance, and they also help teachers determine if further instruction is necessary.

When formative assessments are used consistently, and effectively, neither teachers nor students are surprised by their final grades.

Some formative assessments can take just a few minutes, while others require longer periods of time. The following are 5 great formative assessment strategies for teachers.

Why Kids Need to Move, Touch and Experience to Learn - Mind/Shift

Why Kids Need to Move, Touch and Experience to Learn - Mind/Shift | Teacher's corner | Scoop.it
When students use their bodies in the learning process, it can have a big effect, even if it seems silly or unconnected to the learning goal at hand. Researchers have found that when students use their bodies while doing mathematical storytelling (like with word problems, for example), it changes the way they think about math. “We understand language in a richer, fuller way if we can connect it to the actions we perform,” said Sian Beilock, professor of psychology at the University of Chicago.

Our bodies are designed to move. Even not in motion, the heart is beating, blood and lymph circulating, and we are breathing, seeing and processing. Movement fuels energy and insight.

The Nordic Biophilia Educational Program | BiophiliaEducation.org

The Nordic Biophilia Educational Program | BiophiliaEducation.org | Teacher's corner | Scoop.it

The Biophilia Educational Project is a large-scale pilot project that builds on the participation of academics, scientists, artists, teachers and students at all academic levels. It is based around creativity as a teaching and research tool, where music, technology and the natural sciences are linked together in an innovative way.

The project presents an example of dynamic collaboration between different areas in society, such as the education system, cultural institutions, science and research institutes. It creates a platform for dialogue and debate which encourages both personal and social development, thereby contributing to a sustainable society where new approaches are actively explored.
The project was originally developed by Björk Guðmundsdóttir, the City of Reykjavík and the University of Iceland, in connection with the release of Björk’s 2011 album Biophilia.

The Biophilia Educational Project aims to inspire children to explore their own creativity, while learning about music, nature and science through new technologies. The project has thus far mainly been aimed at children aged 10-12 years, and the programme is based on Björk’s Biophilia app suite of music and interactive, educational artefacts.

Students learn through hands-on participation, composition and collaboration. Participants acquire the skills to develop their musical imagination, to push their creative boundaries and make music in an impulsive and responsive way, inspired by the structures and phenomena of the natural world. The Biophilia Educational project has the potential to bring arts experience to children who might otherwise not have access to it.

To commemorate its 2014 presidency of the Nordic Council of Ministers, the Icelandic government sought collaboration with the other Nordic countries to further develop the project. Local collaboration networks are being set up in all Nordic countries.

After learning new words, brain sees them as pictures

When we look at a known word, our brain sees it like a picture, not a group of letters needing to be processed. That's the finding from a new study that shows the brain learns words quickly by tuning neurons to respond to a complete word, not parts of it.

The Learning Edge of Game Design | GlassLab Games | Teacher's corner | Scoop.it

Learning games are still poised right before their prime. Not a lot of people really understand how powerful they can be yet. This makes funding challenging, in no small part because what seems like luxury — polish, iteration, playtesting — is in fact crucial for the development of effective games of any kind, and these things don’t come cheap. But if what we want to do is learn about how to advance game design itself, there is no better place to be.
