    The Khan Academy is an organization on a mission. They area a not-for-profit with the goal of changing education for the better by providing a free world-class education for anyone anywhere. All of the site's resources are available to anyone. It doesn't matter if you are a student, teacher, home-schooler, principal, adult returning to the classroom after 20 years, or a friendly alien just trying to get a leg up in earthly biology. The Khan Academy's materials and resources are available to you completely free of charge. I teach Title I students in K-12. With that many grades, I am always looking for resources that can help to enhance my reading and math lessons. I found that the presentations are easy to understand and it also exposes my urban students to working online.

Write In Private: Free Online Diary And Personal Journal | Penzu - 1 views

Maggie Rouman liked it
  • Your own personal journal and online diary.
  •  
    This is an online journaling application for writing down your thoughts. Accessible through any online access. This is great way for reflecting, and is more secure than a paper journal. I could use this in my class to have students reflect on thier progress throughout the course or to reflect on group work that they have completed. This is a more techologically advanced form of the traditional notebook journal.
  •  
    This is SOOOOO cool! I could have students create interactive journals in my Written Communication or Oral/Interpersonal Communication class!

Assessing Student Learning - five practical guides - 4 views

  • Start small The basic advice here is, initially, aim for quality rather than quantity. A complete overhaul of the entire curriculum may not be the best place to start with introducing on-line assessment. Many academic staff have successfully started with an on-line assessment task that is a relatively minor proportion of the assessment for a subject. That way, any technical, educational or other difficulties that might arise can be resolved without the risk of seriously disadvantaging students. If might also be useful to start with formative rather than summative assessment on-line. Any efforts made towards this end will be useful in themselves in providing feedback to students and therefore assisting learning, as well as in providing a ‘trial run’ for the more ambitious objective of putting summative assessment

      Three useful guiding principles when starting to use on-line assessmentStart with clear objectives; Start Small-use formative first; Start where success is most likely

  • Has the highly valued and expected flexibility of time-of-day access, pace of work and time spent on task been incorporated

  • If relevant, have opportunities for students to demonstrate creativity in their submissions
  • Where necessary, is the approach chosen to verify individual student performance/submission reliable
  • Has the opportunity to plagiarise been eliminated or at least minimised

  • Table 1: Objectives, modes and learner characteristics of on-line learning If the goal or purpose is to: develop/assess… one might use… but in addition to learner access to and competence with technology, one may need to consider, for example… (objective) (mode) (learner characteristics) A body of knowledge An on-line exam The likelihood of cheating Learner autonomy An on-line quiz with formative feedback That some students’ ICT-related anxiety will dissuade them from using this mode Group work skills On-line study groups Learner comprehension of how to contribute effectively Learner understanding of group product/process assessment Varying learner commitment to collaborative learning Understanding of basic concepts Web-based, self-paced, interactive modules with automated responses and no recorded marks or grades for students Learner interest, motivation and engagement with modules/material given absence of marks/grades Effects on learners of heavy traffic at peak times Student problem-solving skills On-line ‘role-play’ where students adopt allocated roles and then solve a problem in role, with a minimum participation requirement only Learner comprehension of how to contribute effectively Learner interest, motivation and engagement with role play/material given absence of marks/grades Ability to think critically and articulate critical analysis On-line scenarios and information with accompanying prompts and a discussion board, with a minimum participation requirement Learner comprehension of how to contribute effectively Varying learner commitment to collaborative learning Possible variation in starting and completion times for distance and other students Learner ability to reflect Rhetorical, ethical or other questions and a web forum which learners must use to share their reflections, with a minimum participation requirement Learner comprehension of how to contribute effectively Varying learner commitment to collaborative learning Possible variation in starting and completion times for distance and other students
  • It is wise to design assessment tasks that require the students to integrate the material they have learned in the subject with their own interpretations of that material.
  • The use of on-line tools to assess learner progress toward subject objectives can take many forms including: Electronic submission of written assignments Parallel print and on-line assessment options where students are given the choice of whether and how they use on-line tools in assessment tasks Publication of documents on the web Labelling of on-line diagrams Manipulation of on-line graphs Completion of on-line quizzes Completion of short-answer and multiple choice questions On-line exams with monitored and controlled start and stop times Any formative or summative task carried out in a web-based environment.

      Information and Communications Technology (ICT)
  • There is some evidence that on-line assessment, unless carefully planned, can encourage students to focus on lower level cognitive skills.
    • tunstallmath678
       
      Self checking assessments encourage some students to guess the answer then click new answers at  random until the correct answer is found.  
  • If the potential for the use of interactive resources has not been realised and the verification protection is set up so that there is little difference between taking an exam in paper-and-pencil format and taking it on-line, it may be difficult for students to see the point in on-line examinations.
  • Have greater opportunities been provided for students to practise their knowledge and skills than are available in traditional formats?
  • Have the opportunities for diagnostic, continuous, case-based and/or formative assessment of student learning been taken?
  • Have question banks and random selection of items been used, where appropriate?
  • ‘How will the on-line assessment add to the learning experience for students?’
  • The on-line assessment should also allow students to communicate their understandings and allow the provision of feedback to students on their efforts to these ends.
