A thoughtful schematic that is useful for programming and planning. I particularly like the acknowledgement of interaction types at each stage, and suggested programs (apps) to support.

Dynamic Assessment in the Language Classroom

Phil Chappell's curator insight, September 24, 2013 6:30 PM

"In very clear language, the authors provide a basic account of Dynamic Assessment (DA) and trace its origins to Vygotsky's theory of development. They explain the concepts of mediation and Zone of Proximal Development (ZPD), as well as the two main approaches used in DA. They also include three examples detailing what DA looks like in the classroom and conclude the document by providing a glimpse of what the future holds for DA, such as using it with groups and integrating computer technologies to DA procedures."


Great resources to support teachers in combining assessment tecniques into their classroom teaching. Assessment is an integral part of the learning/teaching process in an approach based on principles of Vygotsky's zone of proximal development.

Deeper Learning: Defining Twenty-First Century Literacy

Deeper Learning: Defining Twenty-First Century Literacy | tesol | Scoop.it

How about that last characteristic of a 21st-century learner, effective communicator? Being literate means one who is advanced at reading, writing, speaking, and listening. And, in all schools -- deeper learning driven or not -- literacy is a curriculum fundamental.

A defining look at where teaching and learning is going, and what really makes a digitally literate student.

Very nice sharing. Thanks

Lisa Marie Blaschke's curator insight, December 19, 2013 5:11 AM

Is enough of this being done in the classroom? I wish I could say this is happening in my kids' classrooms here in Germany. These literacies need to be taught much, much sooner.

This picture shows how social media has developed over the years. It mentions how many people thought that social media was started with facebook, when in reality it was really started by other projects that you can see above. This picture/concept shows the differences between which sites took off and which didn't, depending on our cultural preferences.
