Ana Cristina Pratas's comment, November 28, 2012 7:27 AM
Good point Lucy! For me the interest is for language learners - if they use this site, slowly they build up their confidence and realize that yes, they can read the abstracts instead :-) reading is always good practice. For academics, it is likely that this has little interest but for learners, it's great as another activity.
Lucy Georges's comment, November 28, 2012 7:54 AM
Thanks for the reply. Indeed, some of my more advanced students might like to have a go at summarizing one or two articles. I'll bookmark it.
Ana Cristina Pratas's comment, November 28, 2012 8:27 AM
Hi Lucy, glad that you may take the site into consideration and try it out with your students. Sometimes I collect activities/tasks/sites which work well with some students but not necessarily with all. On the other hand, I prefer to be able to pull up sites like these and see how learners react/deal with the tasks. Always a challenge, always a surprise :-)

Muito interessante este site. De certa forma, "limpa, purifica" um vídeo retirando-lhe ads, comentários e tudo aquilo que não faz parte do vídeo original.

Basta copiar o link do vídeo, entrar no ViewPure e colar na barra de endereços. Quase de imediato, pode assistir ao vídeo limpo.

O ViewPure também disponibiliza todos os vídeos que foram "purificados" no site.

53 Ways to Check for Understanding - from Edutopia


Via Beth Dichter

Beth Dichter's curator insight, August 15, 9:14 PM

Edutopia is providing great resources using the hashtag #bestyearever. This will take you to a pdf that provides 53 ways to check for understanding. Below are three of the ideas:

* Invent the quiz: Write 10 higher-order text questions related to the content. Pick 2 and answer them in a page.

* Misconception Check: Give a common misconception about a topic, students explain why they agree or disagree with it.

* Muddy Moment: What frustrates you and confuses you about the text? Why?

As many of are just beginning or will shortly begin a new year the 53 ideas may provide you with some new ways to check for understanding. For more information download the pdf and you might also check this this post from Edutopia, Dipsticks: Efficient Ways to Check for Understanding, where the author discusses assessment, with a focus on Alternative Formative Assessment (AFA) strategies, which generated the list found in the pdf.

Kelly Christopherson's curator insight, August 16, 1:24 PM

Here's a few different ways to help check to see if students are with you or if you need to stop and shift things.
