Avoiding Assessment Mistakes - The Learner's Way - 2 views

    Assessment is arguably the piece of the learning cycle we get most wrong. Whether looked at from the perspective of the learner, the teacher, the school administrator, the politician or the parent, assessment is misunderstood and poorly utilised as a tool for learning. The importance of changing this situation is only made more salient in light of the countless research studies from the likes of Jon Hattie & Dylan Wiliam that points to the power of effective assessment. So, what are the common mistakes and how might we avoid them?

From Traditional Instruction to Instructional Design 2.0 - 1 views

  • Anecdotal reports from learning and development (L&D) professionals indicate that trainers and instructional designers are enthusiastic about and interested in using new tools and approaches, but just don’t have a good understanding of how to do so
  • without much in the way of ideas for integrating them into practice.
  • Social learning is learning with and from others by moving within one’s culture, workplace, and world. It’s often unconscious and unintentional, and it often looks more like solving a problem or working together to make sense of something.

  • social instructional design: incorporating collaborative activities, particularly with new online tools.
  • Social media are the tools that enable social learning
  • This seems obvious, but a focus on outcomes often gets lost in enthusiasm over new tools and products.
  • where performance gaps are
  • Few of us complain that information is too easy to find, or that communication is too smooth.
  • It’s also important to consider the real reasons for using social media for learning in the first place; it should in some way extend or enhance the learning experience, or make the learning more accessible to learners.
  • matching goals to strategies,
  • what will the organization support
  • online leadership book club
  • networking group for graduates of a particular course,
  • dynamic, evolving frequently-asked-questions webpage for new hires,
  • wiki for group projects
  • microblog-based live chat for all the leaders in your organization
  • performance support. L&D is perfectly positioned to use social media tools to deliver job aids and provide real-time mentoring and coaching. Helping to establish and nurture communities
  • Work with others to establish blogs on topics of particular interest in the company, and recruit ambassadors or experts to help populate these and lead conversations.
  • help your learners use social media to learn. Work to invite conversation, comments, and suggestions from your readers or members.
  • Scribd or Slideshare
  • New tools allow us to engage with learners, provide opportunities, and work in learning spaces in ways we never could before. We can offer access to experts in real time, keep course graduates in contact as they work to implement their new learning, and, essentially, have more of a place in the learners’ workflow
  • Provide real-time access to expertise.
  • Invite an expert or author for an online
  • Provide a wiki for learmers to record course notes
  • eave with a virtual course book.
  • A frequent refrain heard from L&D professionals is “I set up a community and they don’t participate” or “I set up a blog for the training department but hardly anyone visits it.” This is where the real shift is coming. New awareness of social learning, and new tools to facilitate it, are changing L&D’s role as content-pusher. We need to participate and partner, and help find and support the conversations. Workers are learning from one another all the time, although they may think of it instead as solving a problem. We are finally uniquely positioned to help move workplace learning from scheduled event to meaningful process.

  • Turning the testing model on its headBy making the whole process more interactive, you put students in greater control of their learning, so they're more invested. Rather than top-down, it's more back-and-forth. It's more about learning for the sake of learning, not just for the sake of the grade. Getting the right answer is fun and rewarding; making mistakes is part of the learning process – less punitive, more forgiving, more encouraging.

    I am in the corporate world, and I take a lot of "boring" exams. I read a book, am expected to memorize everything in it to get a certification, there is no actual "application" or "hands on experience" required, just memorization. I am bookmarking this for future reference, because I think even at the adult level, application, and having fun while learning is absolutely key for them to actually retain what they are learning!

    hyperlinks to quiz creation sites, games...check out Google Drive. It was a good resource if the school doesn't provide another resource.
    I would create a formative quiz, similar to an exit slip to have students try at home, or from their phones to be sure they meet the daily learning target.  I want to try having students record their lab summaries, along with at least one lab trial to post to a class website as a way to review previous labs.

Has anybody tried anything like this in their classroom? Thoughts?
    Another survey possibility?
