5 steps to using self-assessment in the classroom

5 steps to using self-assessment in the classroom | Technology | Scoop.it

Implementing some kind of self-assessment is a very good thing, as it enables learners to judge the quality of their work. I’ve done this on an ad-hoc basis at times in the past, but using a formal instrument or procedure can work wonders, even if it has no official bearing on the final outcome.

I am a huge fan of Pinterest and will definitely try this out in my classroom; though Pinterest is not so well known in the UK.

Jan Schwartz's curator insight, May 18, 2013 1:32 PM

I admit to knowing nothing about Pinterest, but this makes it look interesting and useful.

Have used some of these apps but there are more to look at.

Homeschool FL's curator insight, June 2, 2013 8:33 PM

Educational apps are popping up daily, but the question for parents is, how to know which ones are worth using, and which ones are not? Because let's face it, the app industry is out to make money, and many times app developers are very astute at making an app that "looks" educational, but in reality is just full of ads and sneaky ways of getting your children to buy something.

 

This article lists 46 different websites that review apps for teachers and students. This should help cut through the clutter and help pinpoint the useful from the fluff.

Try them out see what you think. I'm investigating

"Do you want to get more out of your iPhone? Check out the second part of our in-depth guide to Apple’s premier phone. The second of a three part series from author Tim Brookes, this 12-lesson guide outlines everything from the camera to the App Store. Lesson-by-lesson, we’ll take you through your phone’s many functions, from the very basics to more advanced operations and features you might not have even been aware of.

 

"The iPhone is a revolutionary device thanks to its user-friendly interface and sleek minimalist design – but that doesn’t mean it’s always straightforward. Many of the iPhone’s advanced or lesser-used features are hidden away and Apple don’t always do the greatest job of filling you in."
