Could Video Feedback Replace the Red Pen?

Could Video Feedback Replace the Red Pen? | Teaching in Higher Education | Scoop.it

"Writing useful comments on students’ work can be a fine art. And for instructors who put a lot of effort into crafting a critique, there’s always a substantial risk students will skip the written feedback and go right to the grade."

Is this more or less time consuming than typing comments? Does it lead to better student outcomes?

La vidéo demeure une manière dynamique de diffuser de l'information. Son usage dans les feedbacks est déjà présente dans notre quotidien mais attention, il faut savoir choisir le contexte

Elaine J Roberts, Ph.D.'s curator insight, January 30, 2015 6:37 AM

My initial response is "maybe." I stopped using a red pen years and years and years ago. The red is distracting, especially if there are a lot of comments. I also stopped putting a grade on the paper years and years and years ago. Yes, students went straight to the grade and if they liked the grade, that was that: they never read the comments. So they had to read the comments to do any revisions of the paper and no, they didn't know the grade until the final version of the paper. But by then there'd been conferences to discuss their papers and my comments.

52 Of The Best Apps For Your Classroom In 2015

 

What are the best apps for your classroom? The best little bits of software to use tomorrow, in your school, to make your classroom go?

 

This is, strangely, not a frequent topic for us. We are more interested in helping you push your classroom towards something unrecognizable–something that reflects the extraordinary change the world has seen but many public schools have somehow resisted. Something that centers students, helps them learn what’s worth understanding, and then equips them–and you–to make that learning happen.

Teachers Manual to A Paperless Classroom ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

Teachers Manual to A Paperless Classroom ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Teaching in Higher Education | Scoop.it

So how about having a paperless classroom ? Some say this is over-hyped at best, an outright fad at worse. Well let's get down to it and see what it all takes to do it. Like  it or not technology is becoming a big part if not of our teaching then definitely of our students learning. Now digital textbooks are everywhere and the number of  school districts adopting  iPads  as learning tools in classrooms is exponentially increasing.In fact we can make our teaching more effective using the same technology our students love. In this regard I have crafted this little guide to help you better integrate technology into your teaching and drive paper away from you classroom, opps I mean most of it .

Best Tools for Taking Screenshots and Annotating Pictures

Best  Tools for Taking Screenshots and Annotating Pictures | Teaching in Higher Education | Scoop.it
Creating tutorials and explanatory guides is best done through the help of screenshots. These are pictures we take of our screens to share with others or include in a visual demonstration of how, for example, a process works. As teachers and educators we often find ourselves in need of such visual annotations and cues to enhance our students comprehensibility. There are several web tools that we can use to create screenshots and we have already reviewed some of them in past publications here. Today, we are introducing you to what we consider to be the best 4 web tools for creating screenshots. Besides being free, these tools are very simple to use and are also student friendly. They will allow you to  capture your screen, crop and annotate your pictures using  arrows, colours, shapes, text and many more.
