27 Simple Ways To Check For Understanding ~ TeachThought

27 Simple Ways To Check For Understanding ~ TeachThought | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it

"Checking for understanding is the foundation of teaching.Whether you’re using formative assessment for data to personalize learning within a unit, or more summative data to refine a curriculum map, the ability to quickly and easily check for understanding is a critical part of what you do. (Which was the idea behind our post last March, “10 Assessments You Can Perform In 90 Seconds Or Less.”)

 

"The following infographic Mia MacMeekin offers up 27 additional ways to check for understanding. Some aren’t necessarily quick–”Test what you learned in a new situation”–but there are a dozen or more other ideas that are worth adding to your teacher toolbox, many of which aren’t content-related, but rather cognitively-related (Locate 3 people who agree with your point of view.)"

12 Characteristics Of An iPad-Ready Classroom

12 Characteristics Of An iPad-Ready Classroom | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it

iPads are "wondrous little devices capable of enchanting learners for hours, to get the learning results you’re likely after will take planning, design, and reflection."

This post discusses four areas of instruction and instructional design that will help you integrate iPad in the classroom. The four areas are each followed by three bullet points. See each area below, with one of the bullet points listed. Click through to the article for more information.

* Curriculum is Adaptive (as in less rigid). There are "Learning pathways, embedded differentiation and personalization, culturally and cognitively responsive tasks and work that honors constructivist thinking and doing over passivity and compliance."

* Instruction is diverse (as in less uniform).  "With access to a nearly infinite number of digital domains, instruction will have to adapt in parallel, including peer-to-peer, student-to-student, school-to-school learning; mastery-based learning via apps such as the Khan Academy."

* Assessment is Frequent and Formative (as in less intermittent and summative). "A climate of assessment that yields simple data digestible to all stakeholders–including the teacher."

* Integrated with Relevant Communities (as in purely academic, or forced, awkward audiences–for the love of everything, please no more letters to the principals). Digital, Physical, Local, Global

We received feedback and input from educators who helped us revise the chart so it clarifies the differences between the terms.

Will the New Online Standardized Tests Be Different?

Will the New Online Standardized Tests Be Different? | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it

Many of us are asking this question "Will the new online standardized tests be different?" and this post begins to explore where things stand at this point. There are two state coalitions that are designing the new tests, the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) and the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium. For a look at sample questions from both sites and a short discussion on what the "computer enhanced" testing may bring to your classroom click through to the post.
