Adrian Bertolini's curator insight, June 20, 9:55 PM

I would like to see more teachers and schools embed formative assessment into the way they operate. Unfortunately I rarely see it - despite the fact it would allow the learners to be more responsible for their learning and develop their capacities faster! Here are some very interesting thinking of how to do it by an English teacher

Designing Learning Experiences: Start with the Student and Co-Create

Designing Learning Experiences: Start with the Student and Co-Create | Teaching in the Digital Age | Scoop.it
Students are more likely to engage with a unit of study they've co-created. Matt Levinson suggests an eight-step example for how the history classroom.
Teresa Herrin's insight:

In AP classes, focus must remain on essential content for exam. However, I really like the 'engaged' preview of the unit from the student's perspective. It will work if the parameters of their input is broadly constrained. Of course, broadly constrained is contradictory and very difficult to accomplish. Still, the idea is worth tweaking.

The You Want to Know About Copyright in Education Infographic

The You Want to Know About Copyright in Education Infographic | Teaching in the Digital Age | Scoop.it

As I’ve mentioned before—it is not only important for educators to encourage students to push the technological envelope, but it’s equally essential that we teach them to navigate the digital world in a responsible manner. But in order to do so, we must first become familiar with copyright rules and fair use guidelines ourselves—a task that can seem very daunting and frustrating at times. If you’ve ever used online materials for teaching and learning, then I’m sure you have wondered one or more of the following: Do I need permission to use this image? Can I share this video on my classroom web site? Would it be best for my me and/or my students to create my/their own media? Well, it may not answer all of your burning questions, but the copyright flowchart shown below will surely help with some of the confusion surrounding this very relevant and significant topic.
