      Another think I would have each participant do is to create a Bitmoji for their profile.

      There is also a Chrome Extension so a tablet or smartphone is not needed.

      I would have my participants use Adobe Spark Video to introduce themselves to me. Once they learn the program, they will have this as a resource for future academic activities.

ol101-f2019: Iowa Online Teaching Standards - 10 views

  • Identifies and communicates learning outcomes and expectations through a course overview/orientation (Varvel IV.A, ITS 3.b)
    • alisauter
       
      This is just good sense. We do this in the traditional classrooms, so it definitely needs to be WELL defined in an online classroom.
  • Understands the differences between teaching online and teaching face-to-face (SREB C.1, Varvel V)
    • alisauter
       
      Probably my #1 when it comes to importance. People think they are the same. They couldn't be more different.
  • • Tailors instruction to meet the different needs of students, including different learning styles, different interests and backgrounds, and students with special needs or whom are language learners (SREB C.7, Varvel V.H, ITS 4.c)
    • alisauter
       
      One of the reasons driving online learning is that it is more personalized to meet the needs of the students.

  • • Understands and uses course content that complies with intellectual property rights and fair use, and assists students in complying as well (SREB E.5, Varvel I.B)
    • alisauter
       
      Modeling best practices for all students, whether they are face-to-face or traditional, really needs to be a priority. Online students will likely have more digital citizenship opportunities than many other students. Teaching them and modeling compliance with the policies is crucial.

Article(s): Self- and Peer-Assessment Online - 0 views

  • Encourages student involvement and responsibility.
    • alisauter
       
      If this isn't "required" I don't see many students wanting to do this. It is a struggle in F2F classes. Maybe in an online setting it would be better for some?
  • Students may have little exposure to different forms of assessment and so may lack the necessary skills and judgements to effectively manage self and peer assessments
    • alisauter
       
      This is such a mountain to climb, but if more F2F classes do this, then perhaps it will be easier in online classes and vice versa.
  • here may also be a perception amongst students that the academic is ‘shirking’ their responsibilities by having students undertaking peer assessments.
    • alisauter
       
      We have had this perception with Blended and Flipped learning with some of our students and parents. We quickly learned that educating the stakeholders is important.

  • When operating successfully can reduce a lecturer's marking load.

      It does, but obviously from the Disadvantages below, it doesn't. What is the balance?

ollie-afe-2019: Article: Attributes from Effective Formative Assessment (CCSSO) - 0 views

  • Because the formative assessment process helps students achieve intended learning outcomes based on explicit learning progressions, teachers must first identify and then communicate the instructional goal to students.
    • alisauter
       
      The reason Learning Targets are so important to establish and communicate.
  • Effective formative assessment involves collecting evidence about how student learning is progressing during the course of instruction so that necessary instructional adjustments can be made to close the gap between students’ current understanding and the desired goals. Formative assessment is not an adjunct to teaching but, rather, integrated into instruction and learning with teachers and students receiving frequent feedback.
    • alisauter
       
      People think this can be "scripted" but it really can't. Formative assessment CHANGES the teaching and learning processes to meet the needs of the learners. It is fluid.
  • In self-assessment, students reflect on and monitor their learning using clearly explicated criteria for success.
    • alisauter
       
      I think this is harder for some kids to do than others.
  • ...1 more annotation...
  • Creating such a culture requires teachers to model these behaviors during interactions with students, to actively teach the classroom norms, and to build the students’ skills in constructive self- and peer-assessment. In this type of classroom culture, students will more likely feel they are collaborators with their teacher and peers in the learning process.
    • alisauter
       
      This reminds me of the routines you have to build with elementary students each fall for things like centers, bell ringers, daily 5, etc. Even blended and flipped learning needs routines visited and revisited at the beginning.

ollie-afe-2019: Building a Better Mousetrap - 0 views

  • Rubrics can be used either for “filtering”—as they are used in placement testing—or for “latticing,” or “scaffolding”—if they are shared with students prior to the completion of any given assignment.
    • alisauter
       
      I think communicating the rubric ahead of time makes them easier to score. I have had to conduct technology camp entrance interviews using a rubric that is "blind" and they are more challenging because the students come into the interviews completely blind to any of the questions or criteria.
  • habits of mind practiced in the act of self-assessment.
    • alisauter
       
      THIS! I think developing the right mindset in our students when it comes to grading and rubrics is so important, although sometimes challenging.
  • others worry that doing so will encourage formulaic writing
    • alisauter
       
      I think that this depends on how the rubric is written.
  • ...3 more annotations...
  • Rubrics that are prescriptive rather than descriptive will promote thoughtless and perfunctory writing; such rubrics are as limiting to the development of rhetorical mastery as the five-paragraph essay.
  • adopt a rubric
    • alisauter
       
      Rubistar and https://rubric-maker.com have different academic content area rubrics and grade levels.
  • While the fundamental focus of assessment is always to promote learning, there are other reasons why we engage in assessment: curriculum reform, placement, promotion, diagnosis, accountability, and so on (Critical Issue).

      Establishing your purpose is so vital.

ollie-afe-2019: Educational Leadership: The Quest for Quality--article - 6 views

  • n the past, few educators, policymakers, or parents would have considered questioning the accuracy of these tests.
    • alisauter
       
      Is this because educators had more trust among these stakeholders back in the day?
  • Assessment literacy is the foundation for a system that can take advantage of a wider use of multiple measures.
    • alisauter
       
      We need to be teaching assessment literacy in teacher prep classes.
