Learning to Measure Media Literacy Outcomes | Educator Innovator

Learning to Measure Media Literacy Outcomes | Educator Innovator | web learning | Scoop.it
Our Media Literacy Competency Assessment Rubric uses the students’ final projects as indicators for levels of competency of a variety of skills, and measures how well students can put their new media literacy skills into practice. Every program track has a set of central skills-based competencies that fall under the LAMP’s broader intended outcomes, and the rubric can be adapted to measure these competencies according to the program. In designing the rubric, we had to clarify these outcomes and came to the determination that activism is key to the LAMP learning experience. So instead of trying to measure attitudes, our assessment tool evaluates the active work created by the students, and how it enables the roles they play in a participatory digital culture. For many students, the very act of producing their own work and challenging the media is a form of activism, and our rubric takes this into account as a key goal. We seek to uplift their voices so they feel comfortable challenging the media, and the projects they create are where these newly learned media literacy concepts and active media-making skills can be seen. The final projects produced by students show us how well they understand the concepts being taught, but also if students feel empowered enough to make their own active media messages.

Free Technology for Teachers: Flubaroo Compared to the New Google Forms Auto-grading Feature

Free Technology for Teachers: Flubaroo Compared to the New Google Forms Auto-grading Feature | web learning | Scoop.it
On Monday Google Forms received an update that allows you to create automatically graded multiple choice and true/false quizzes. To do this just go into your Form's settings menu and select "quizzes." You can then specify point values for each multiple choice question in your Form. In that same menu you can enter answer explanations. The quizzes setting also gives you the option of letting students see their scores immediately after completing a quiz. The quizzes setting is convenient, but it is not as feature-laden as the Google Sheets Add-on called Flubaroo.

A new approach to teacher training :: MIT Technology Review

A new approach to teacher training :: MIT Technology Review | web learning | Scoop.it

"Standing in front of several hundred education leaders over coffee and croissants in the ballroom of Cambridge’s Royal Sonesta Hotel, Arthur Levine is gleefully taking apart the modern education system. “Imagine if your GPS worked like testing does today—it would give you a reading every hour,” quips Levine, president of the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation, a Princeton, New Jersey–based nonprofit focused on education and leadership development. What’s more, “when you started you’d be 20 miles from where you are going; and now you are 50 miles from where you are going, and heading in the wrong direction....

 

"Just a few blocks away from where’s he giving the speech, he and his foundation are working with MIT to construct a new model for a graduate school of education to implement his vision. Over the next five years, MIT will serve as the incubator for the Woodrow Wilson Academy of Teaching and Learning, an independent teacher-education school that plans to offer a master’s in education as well as a license to teach a STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) subject in grades 5 to 12. (The degrees will be granted by the academy, not MIT.) When it opens its doors to teacher candidates in the fall of next year, the academy will use cutting-edge technology and the latest brain research on learning to dramatically transform the way teachers learn—and the way they teach middle school and high school students."
