  • Turning the testing model on its head
    By 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!

    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.

    If you take the time to master the PB wiki environment, it can be a fine platform for creating your e-Portfolio. Wikis do have a learning curve, but what technology doesn't. PBworks (once called Peanut Butter Wiki) is well established and has a rick toolset.

    Good for setting up a safe social networking location for students in a class. Students must be invited to join and you, as the instructor, are the only one to send out invites. Great for student blogging.
