Four Strategies for Effective Assessment in a Flipped Learning Environment

Four Strategies for Effective Assessment in a Flipped Learning Environment | web learning | Scoop.it
But because initial engagement with new material is done independently as a preparation for class time, rather than as its focus, many things could go wrong. If students do the assigned pre-class work but don’t acquire enough fluency with the basics—or if they simply don’t do it at all—then the in-class experience could be somewhere between lethargic and disastrous. How can an instructor in a flipped learning environment avoid this and instead have consistently engaging and productive learning experiences for students in both the individual and group spaces?

A key to achieving this kind of environment is assessment. Because flipped learning is more decentralized and personalized than in a traditional course design, the challenge is to have assessments that provide reliable, actionable information about student learning in the various phases of flipped learning that is as up-to-the-minute as possible. Armed with this knowledge about student learning, instructors can provide just the right amount of support at just the right time, any time.

Here are four strategies for flipped learning assessment that can help provide this kind of support.

Maslow, technology and learning

Maslow, technology and learning | web learning | Scoop.it

I love a good mash-up. It's a digital age version of synthesis. Actually, that's a little misleading - synthesis is a skill required by academics and scholars, whether technology is present or not. But a mash-up takes several ideas, formats or sources and places them together in a new form, to say something new. That's why I like it. It's creative and it's often thought provoking.

What's Possible with Personalized Learning? An Overview of Personalized Learning for Schools, Families & Communities - iNACOL

What's Possible with Personalized Learning? An Overview of Personalized Learning for Schools, Families & Communities - iNACOL | web learning | Scoop.it
This paper is designed to inform schools, families and communities about the potential of personalized learning. This report describes why personalized learning matters and shows what personalized learning looks like in schools for teachers and for students.  

Through case studies, this paper illustrates what personalized learning looks like in practice, provides examples of teachers personalizing learning in their schools and districts, and shares student perspectives on how new instructional designs are meeting their unique needs. Education leaders, parents, teachers, students and communities can use this report to begin conversations around what modern learning environments look like and how schools can best prepare students for postsecondary success.

Piaget’s Constructivism, Papert’s Constructionism: What’s the difference?

Piaget’s Constructivism, Papert’s Constructionism: What’s the difference? | web learning | Scoop.it
What is the difference between Piaget's constructivism and Papert’s “constructionism”? Beyond the mere play on the words, I think the distinction holds, and that integrating both views can enrich our understanding of how people learn and grow. Piaget’s constructivism offers a window into what children are interested in, and able to achieve, at different stages of their development. The theory describes how children’s ways of doing and thinking evolve over time, and under which circumstance children are more likely to let go of—or hold onto— their currently held views. Piaget suggests that children have very good reasons not to abandon their worldviews just because someone else, be it an expert, tells them they’re wrong. Papert’s constructionism, in contrast, focuses more on the art of learning, or ‘learning to learn’, and on the significance of making things in learning. Papert is interested in how learners engage in a conversation with [their own or other people’s] artifacts, and how these conversations boost self-directed learning, and ultimately facilitate the construction of new knowledge. He stresses the importance of tools, media, and context in human development. Integrating both perspectives illuminates the processes by which individuals come to make sense of their experience, gradually optimizing their interactions with the world
