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.

About | The Art of Ed

About | The Art of Ed | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it
AboutJess-Three-HeadshotsHi, I’m Jessica Balsley, founder of The Art of Education.A few years ago, I was working towards my masters degree, and discovered it was nearly impossible to find relevant professional development opportunities out there for art teachers. Through this personal experience, the idea for The Art of Education was born.After that, my husband Derek and I set out on a mission to provide Ridiculously Relevant™ Professional Development to Art Educators around the world. What started as a blog, quickly morphed into a catalog of 15+ online classes for Art Teachers, and an online magazine with daily articles, tips, tricks, videos, and the first ever online conference just for art teachers.
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:
Those that cannot get to a state or national conference this year might want to try this online conference. It is always good to see how others have approached things,though many of you may be using or doing some of these same things in your own ways. This looks like a good conference that I may check out and get back to you about. The listed online courses are fairly high to me if they are not connected to direct course credit for an advanced degree, unless you are sure you need special info on a subject you have weakness about. There were no samples of instruction that I could find and the details seemed vague and generalized. Great Courses offer more in depth art history and museum back grounds for far less if you watch their sales. The conference looks like it might be a good buy. I and many others offer great links to many with great ideas to share for free these days as well. You may want to connect with teacher links to offer your ideas and plans for sale at some of the teacher share plan sites that offer that service. Juno is one I know of where you can set a price or offer free ideas, test and so forth to other teachers. Please feel free to add in the comments any teacher sites that allow you to sale or free offer your plans or that you have tried and liked. If anyone has participated in this conference let us know what you think as well.

Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

Maybe that is because he thinks education is the problem when really it is society, poverty, break down of the family unit, apathy of industry towards mankind, nature and employees in general and social justice issues that interfere with learning the most.

Learning and innovating really have no ending and creative ideas normally snowball and build from the ideas of others..

Art Teaching for a New Age

Art Teaching for a New Age | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it
Today's students have grown up using powerful creative technology in a way that no previous generation has. So what do we need to teach them?
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

Excerpt:

"Art making has changed radically in recent years. Artists have become increasingly interested in crossing disciplinary boundaries—choreographers use video, sculpture, and text; photographers create "paintings" with repurposed textiles. New technologies enable new kinds of work, like interactive performances with both live and Web-based components. International collaboration has become de rigueur. Art and design pervade the culture"
