Gabi Witthaus's curator insight, August 28, 2013 7:28 AM

I just attended a session in the eAssessment Scotland online conference by Chrissi Nerantzi and Juliette Wilson of the University of Salford: Sharing Formative Tutor-, Peer- and Self-feedback Openly: A Crazy Idea? An Example from Academic Development.

 

They shared how they had experimented with students openly giving and receiving feedback in a PGCAP (Post Graduate Certificate in Academic Practices) module. The main locus of activity was in a Wordpress site (follow link from the subject line of this scoop) and students had the option to keep their learning portfolios and associated feedback private or public. They were also encouraged to publish their own work under Creative Commons licences. While only a few students chose to use CC licences, the majority agreed to publishing openly and receiving feedback openly. 

 

The structure for feedback followed David Boud's (University of Technology, Sydney) very useful "Generations of Feedback" model (http://www.srhe.ac.uk/downloads/events/69_Boud.pdf). In the Salford case, this involved students initially requesting feedback from tutors and peers, and doing a self-assessment five weeks into the course, after which they would ask for specific feedback. All requests for feedback were related to the module assessment criteria.

 

The students that chose to give and receive feedback openly reported largely positively on the process, saying for example that they found they were reading more (as they followed up on suggestions from peers), and that they were building up their professional networks online through the activities. There were also some reservations and concerns about receiving feedback in the open, which led to some questions in the Webinar about the possible contradictions between wanting to provide a 'safe' space for students to learn while also trying to inculcate a culture of openness. 

 

I think the fact that going open was optional for students was probably a good thing, as it enabled those students who were happy to engage in the public domain to do so, while also allowing students who had reservations about the exposure to learn in a private space. It was interesting to note though, that the students who published openly tended to receive the most feedback (from peers and tutors as well as a handful of external readers on the Web).

Jeffrey Earp's curator insight, March 26, 2014 9:28 AM

According to Nesta's survey, a majority of UK's youngsters have at some time made a digital game. The words kids associate with digital makers are CREATIVE, SMART and COOL. The key words capturing their motivation are FUN and INTERESTING. And of all digital production types, the one they want most to pursue is GAME MAKING! Much food for thought here.

Using Book Creator as an Assessment Tool

Using Book Creator as an Assessment Tool | Resources sharing and collaboration | Scoop.it

Book creator has probably been the app I have used most, in my teaching, with pupils and in my training. The blank canvas aspect means it can be used across the whole curriculum and the addition of the pen tool in the last few weeks has added to that.

 

We use Showbie at school for pupils to share their work, including books made with Book Creator from the iPads and home to the teachers for assessment. Recently, we have used both the Pen Tool and Record feature to give feedback on the pupils' eBooks. The pupils send their books using Showbie and the teacher opens them up on his/her iPad. They can then annotate with their voice, pen and text. The book can then be sent back to the pupils using Showbie. The pupil can either change the original book and delete the annotated one or change the annotated book and delete the original.

 

The screenshot shows a book of a Science experiment. The teacher can annotate with arrows but also add audio feedback. All elements of Book Creator can be deleted so the pupil can restore any annotated book to the original.

 

This is obviously not a new idea but the pen tool has certainly made this quicker in a widely used app such as Book Creator.

The Appification of Ecommerce
About a year ago I purchased a new MacBook Air. Seeing how my new laptop related to the world much like an iPad with apps and an app store was a revelation. Apps will rule the world. 

This trend is why we are all app builders now and these tutorials are a must view. The trend toward apps is more than you think. A few days ago I shared a Haiku Deck about the future of web design 3.0 (http://sco.lt/7r6zkf). 

 I missed the appification of everything. Apps, the widget-like shrinking of code to Lego blocks, form the core of mobile programming. Since mobile is taking over the smart move is to "appify" everything. 

This means thinking of websites as interconnected blocks responding to each other and our visitors in real time (as described in the deck). Best demonstration or analogy for this fluid app future is MIT's David Merrill explaining Siftable at TED http://www.ted.com/talks/david_merrill_demos_siftables_the_smart_blocks.html .

The way Siftables related to one another (they are aware other Siftables are present and have a desire to connect if code expressed as a toy can have desires) and link in order to create a sum is greater than the whole universe is a great way to think about the New Ecommerce. 

The new ecom is location agnostic (capable of converting anywhere at anytime and with the merest snippet of Siftable-like code), socially self aware (capable of pulling friends and their influencers into the equation) and appified (small Lego-like blocks snapped together to meet specific needs). 

Sometimes we will snap in the predictive analytics block sometimes we might now. Other times we will want the social share block other times not. Design, in this Siftables-like future, becomes a series of WHAT IF conditions and testing, always testing. 

Going to be fun and why it is a GOOD idea to become an app builder.
