Rubrics for integrating digital taxonomy in teaching

dt4lt's insight:

Andrew Church created a collection of 20 rubrics for integrating Bloom’s digital taxonomy in teaching. Each rubric is related to one or more stages of Bloom’s Taxonomy and there are rubrics for bookmarking, blogging, wiki editing, etc. Each rubric is followed by exemplars that illustrate how to achieve the targeted thinking level.

It’s a Mistake Not to Use Mistakes as Part of the Learning Process

It’s a Mistake Not to Use Mistakes as Part of the Learning Process | Digital technologies for assessment & feedback | Scoop.it
I recently heard a TED talk from Brian Goldman, a doctor who admits to having made mistakes. In very emotional language, he describes some costly emergency room mistakes, and then makes a strong case for changing the way that the medical profession addresses such things. He believes that medicine will improve if doctors are free to discuss their mistakes, without judgment, allowing them to learn from each other. But, he continued, because doctors are judged by mistakes, they are too afraid to discuss them. Instead, they are often covered up, blamed on others, or ignored.
dt4lt's insight:

Why should we try to find value in our mistakes? Dr. Richard Curwin investigates the value of making mistakes and learning from them and suggests simple ways to teach with mistakes.

Kimberly House's curator insight, August 11, 2014 1:57 PM

Very thorough guide to using, assessing and making ePortfolios happen. Plenty of tips and suggestions for which apps to use and how to digitise work. Nicely presented and easy to follow. Also does a good job talking about the 'why' of ePortfolios. This is the part I find some of my teachers struggle with.

Ness Crouch's curator insight, April 9, 2015 8:40 PM

ePortfolios are a great way of collecting artefacts digitally. Have you tried this with your students? 

David Bell's curator insight, April 12, 2015 7:26 PM

There are some great links about ePortfolios here. Well worth a look.

What Do Secondary School Students Think About Multimedia Science Computer Assisted Assessment?

dt4lt's insight:

The study examines students’ attitudes towards online assessment and factors such as gender, science performance and ability levels. The results showed that students preferred online assessment to pen and paper assessment because it was more aligned to their learning practices even though the skills required for online assessment exceeded their own skills.

Classroom Assessment Techniques: The Muddiest Point

The first in a series of videos on Classroom Assessment Techniques (CATs). Describes how instructors can help students clarify their thinking by identifying ...
dt4lt's insight:

The Muddiest Point is a Classroom Assessment Technique that helps teachers assess where students are having difficulties. The technique consists of asking students after a class activity (discussion, presentation, lecture, etc.) to write down what they did not understand. This is the “muddiest point” meaning the “most unclear” or “most confusing.”

In online language teaching, teachers can use the Muddiest Point technique as a learning opportunity by asking students to write on the discussion forum what they did not understand and then respond to others’ questions.

The video, inspired by the book “Classroom Assessment Techniques”,  illustrates how the Muddiest Point technique scaffolds learning in both online and face to face environments.

Why It’s Time To Rethink (And Question) Homework

Why It’s Time To Rethink (And Question) Homework | Digital technologies for assessment & feedback | Scoop.it
The concept of homework as we have known it in the past is changing rapidly, since it often distorts the overall picture of learning. Flipped classrooms, the ability to use the same technology and tools both in and out of the classroom, and personalized learning are making ripples in the education world. And while most …
dt4lt's insight:

Assessment - how it is done and what is assessed - has an influence on what learners will aim to achieve and the amount of effort/time they will invest. Teachers should rethink how they design assessment tasks and what options (if any) they offer to their students.
