This does happen and there are times when teachers know more than students. That is why education, teaching, and learning are conversations.

Thanks for passing this one on to your PLCs. I flip my History courses, and now I find we are enjoying being historians rather than learning about history. We analyze primary source documents. We create data overlays from census data and church records. We discover what happened, and enjoy arguing over the "Whys." Flipping my classed has changed how I teach for the better.

Three lessons from data on the best ways to give feedback to students - Education By The Numbers | Purposeful Pedagogy | Scoop.it
Though the researchers initially found more than 1600 studies that looked at how students learned from computer responses to their answers, they determined that only 40 of these studies were high quality ones that directly compared different types of feedback to see which were most effective.  Most of the studies were aimed at university students and the researchers lamented how few studies looked at how younger students respond to computerized feedback. 

But from analyzing the 40 high-quality studies, here’s what they learned.

6 questions determine if you're technology rich, innovation poor | Purposeful Pedagogy | Scoop.it

"If you answer no to all six questions when evaluating the design of assignments and student work, then chances are that technology is not really being applied in the most innovative ways. The questions we ask to evaluate implementation and define innovation are critical."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, January 16, 10:01 PM

This post, by Alan November, ask six question that help districts help "clarify for educators the unique added value of a digital learning environment, and whether their assignments were making the best use of this environment.

November believes that innovation is critical, and shares his perspective that technology needs to move beyond the ability to function and move the school community (teachers, staff and students) to be more innovative, which requires that the "design of learning" that will lead to new levels of student achievement.

The six questions he raises are below:

1.  Did the assignment build capacity for critical thinking on the web?

2.  Did the assignment develop new lines of inquiry?

3.  Are there opportunities for students to make their thinking visible?

4.  Are there opportunities to broaden the perspective of the conversation with authentic audiences from around the world?

5.  Is there an opportunity for students to create a contribution (purposeful work)?

6.  Does the assignment demo “best in the world” examples of content and skill?

Additional information is included with each question in the post. How would you score your school or district?
