How Do Rubrics Help? | Edutopia - 0 views

  • Rubrics are multidimensional sets of scoring guidelines that can be used to provide consistency in evaluating student work. They spell out scoring criteria so that multiple teachers, using the same rubric for a student's essay, for example, would arrive at the same score or grade
  • They provide a measurement system for specific tasks and are tailored to each project
  • Rubrics are great for students: they let students know what is expected of them, and demystify grades by clearly stating, in age-appropriate vocabulary, the expectations for a project

  • learning is about gaining specific skills
  • Rubrics also help teachers authentically monitor a student's learning process and develop and revise a lesson plan
  • measure the quality of a body of work
  • A team rubric is a guideline that lets each team member know what is expected of him or he
  • A project rubric lists the requirements for the completion of a project-based-learning lesson.

Here's Why You Need an E-Learning Portfolio » The Rapid eLearning Blog - 5 views

    • Dennis OConnor
      This is an excellent idea for both instructional design and online teaching.  I wish I'd captured a few artifacts from the dozens of classes I taught for a private university.  As it was, all I had was a list of course titles I'd taught. (Which certainly helped my credibility)
  • Build a case study for each project.  It doesn’t need to be overly fancy.  Describe the project objectives, what you did, and the results. If you have examples add them.  If not, at least try to add some screenshots. 
  • Create a blog to document your learning.

      Blogs can be idea factories where you publish first draft thinking (with a bit of polish).  You can then revisit your earlier ideas and revise and re-purpose your work for your portfolio.  Alternately you can link to your active blogs to give a potential employer a sense of your current thinking and interests. 
  • Network with others.  A portfolio’s no good if you have no place to show it(your blog) or share it (your network).  The good thing with blogging and other social tools like Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter is that you connect with others in the industry.  You’ll learn a lot and others will get to know you and your skills.  It’s a great way to prepare for opportunities.  Just ask Cammy.
  • Opportunities exist.  However, when you’re not prepared, you don’t bother looking; and if you do look, you don’t always know what to look for. 
  • n addition, because you maintain a portfolio of your skills, you’re more apt to think about the skills you need for the portfolio.  It then becomes a motivator to learn more.
  • Too many people told me that they couldn’t share what they were working on.  This makes sense for the organization, but not for you.  Don’t allow their content to make your skills proprietary, as well.  In the same sense, don’t let their lower expectations define your skills. 
  • If you lose your job, you could be flushing a lot of your work down the drain.  One day you’re happy at work and the next you’re out on the street with no access to your projects or the tools used to build them.  For these reasons, it’s important to maintain a portfolio.
  • Do you have examples of different approaches to learning and course design.
  • If all things are equal, I’ll take someone with a strong sense of visual design because it crosses into other areas like engagement, communication, and usability.
  • Don’t show me 400 courses that all look the same.
  • They don’t need to be complete courses.
  • So for me there’s two types of writing: technical and conversational.
  • You don’t need to be a software engineer, but you should know the essence of the technologies and how they work.

    Great resource for organizing a "virtual" binder. Students can also use this to organize projects and other work for classes.

    Our media specialist recommended this site. I have just started playing around with it and have been impressed with how well it will fit into my AP class where students are constantly working together on group assignments but cannot always meet afterschool. I'll keep you posted as I really start using it.
    Create your own online binder to hold multimedia and media-rich content, websites, electronic files all in an organized system that is ready to share at any time. Awesome tool for teachers and students.

    Program that allows you to upload your office or PDF documents and turns them into a published album, portfolio, print media etc. It provides the ability to share th album online. This technology could be used for a final capstone project in a class to give it a professional look and appeal.

    This site is a reference for teachers wanting to have students create and maintain portfolios of their work in an electronic environment. The site author, Helen Barrett, has compiled a variety of web links for different aspects of e-portfolio design, with the aim of allowing the user to create e-portfolios using free resources on the web.
    I love it when someone has already done a lot of work for me - and this site is a good example. There are lots of links to tutorials and tools to help educators work with students on e-portfolio creation.
