Beyond Knowing Facts, How Do We Get to a Deeper Level of Learning? | TransformingAssessmentPracticesViaTechnology | Scoop.it
Every student has the capacity for rich, meaningful learning experiences. How can educators tap into the motivation that helps drive a love of learning in students? They key might be found in the "deeper learning" movement.
Ellie Grant's insight:

How do we assess process oriented skills such as Collaboration and critical thinking? "...we need to know what we are assessing for," Marc Chun. Getting started with Deeper Learning - ask students what they care about.

Teaching at higher SAMR levels doesn't guarantee greater educational benefit. Instead, it more likely results in different educational benefit.
Ellie Grant's insight:

Meaningful transformation for greater educational benefit does not necessarily mean more tech. We need to ask the WHY questions. What is our intent, purpose, goal for integrating specific forms of technology? Be curious ~ ask questions ~ wonder together.

Inquiring into Inquiry ... an emergent approach. Talk less, wonder and question more, relate with head and heart. What we think, say and do matters! (Hattie J., 2011, Visible Learning for Teachers)

Learning vs Marks – What’s important to students? | Educating in the 21st Century

Chris Wejr's curator insight, February 24, 2014 9:46 AM

A great conversation starter by Delta educator Aaron Akune that includes some reflective questions that got me thinking (from when I was in the classroom more often): Do our students focus on task completion over learning? Do our students focus on grade-getting over learning? What messages do we send to our students with our assessments?

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, February 24, 2014 2:03 PM

Learning is about being able to increasingly assess one's progress. It is a process of increased self-direction, self-discipline, and reflection which enables learning. Marks are a snapshot in time and averages out learning in ways that may be deceptive. The self-assessment processes are important to make sense of the marks.
