More Progressive Ways to Measure Deeper Level of Learning | Mind/Shift

More Progressive Ways to Measure Deeper Level of Learning | Mind/Shift | Teacher Education- Technology in the Classroom | Scoop.it
How do we measure learning beyond knowledge of content? Finding that winning combination of criteria can prove to be a complicated and sometimes difficult process. Schools that are pushing boundaries are learning that it takes time, a lot of conversation, and a willingness to let students participate in that evaluation.

This is an excellent article on different aspects and perspectives of deeper learning. 

 

“Any of the deeper learning outcomes, the reflection is really where the power is and it puts the onus back on the student, instead of the teacher standing in judgment', Cady Staff.

 

Student centered rubrics (code-designed) provides the necessary feedback to achieve learning outcomes that are functional within your teaching and learning environment.

The Force of empathy in advocacy storytelling

The Force of empathy in advocacy storytelling | Teacher Education- Technology in the Classroom | Scoop.it

By Ted Fickes 

You need not have watched the first U.S. presidential debate on October 3rd to know what happened. Mitt Romney won the debate in the eyes of most that watched. He succeeded, in part, by creating a narrative, telling stories, and using a strong sense of empathy to connect with  citizens.


The power of empathy in Governor Romney’s debate performance (and the lack of it displayed by President Obama) has been declared significant enough to perhaps turn Romney’s campaign from a languishing also-ran to a possible winner.


But it is empathy that gives stories
their power in advocacy and
campaign communications.

"In the UK and other countries there are justified fears about negative effects of various social media with students under the age of 18.  On top of the distraction it provides there are more dangerous issues such as cyberbullying, privacy issues and the potential for abuse.  However, there are some simple rules that can be followed to make Twitter a useful addition to a school’s and teacher’s toolset."

Parenting in the Digital Age: Teaching Kids to Balance Their Own Media Diet | The Digital Media Diet | Teacher Education- Technology in the Classroom | Scoop.it

There are a lot of great models out there that I have seen for achieving a healthy media diet, but so far this one is the most useful for my own family. My son, age seven, understands this tool now well enough to apply it to his own requests for media in our home before asking one of his parents. When he does ask for media, he now begins with, “I know the answer is probably no, because the triangle had only one yes, but …” So, without further ado, here is the model I created, shared with my own family and tested out for a couple weeks: - See more at: http://digitalmediadiet.com/?p=3112

Teacher stands up, and says: "For your final uber important assignment that is also tangentially tied to the overall plot of his book, you'll be working in groups." A ripple of excitement spreads over the students.
Samantha Macchione's insight:

So true.. I love being able to choose my own groups and work with  my friends. It's who I trust and am comfortable with. As a reserved person, working with other people can sometimes be intimidating! Although there are pros to working with new people, with big assignments working with friends is great!
