"Personalized" vs. "Personal" Learning - 0 views

  • However, in order to navigate the system of accountability in the U.S. educational system, many school district leaders require public school educators to teach a specific curriculum that will be evaluated on standardized tests
    • mpercy
       
      This is a big hurdle to overcome if we are to adopt a personalized learning environment. How can we make sure that students know the curriculum they will be evaluated on before going on to college or other programs after high school. Can they still demonstrate success on these tests?
  • Technology was strikingly absent from these conversations.
    • mpercy
       
      This surprises me as it has been a focus for many districts to become 1:1 with technology. I would think that to become more personalized technology would need to be implemented.

ol101-f2019: Iowa Online Teaching Standards - 10 views

  • Networks with others involved in online education for the purpose of professional growth
    • mpercy
       
      The best part of taking courses such as this one is to learn of the experiences of other instructors.
  • Understands and uses data from assessments to guide instruction
    • mpercy
       
      This is a focus for our district this year. To use our LMS generated data to guide instruction.
  • Knows the content of the subject to be taught and understands how to teach the content to students

  • Provides and communicates evidence of learning and course data to students and colleagues
    • mpercy
       
      This is not much different from the face-2-face classroom. Students, parents, and administrators want to see evidence of learning.

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

  • Such self assessment encourages students to become independent learners and can increase their motivation.
    • mpercy
       
      This is a great accomplishment for any teacher!
  • Students may be reluctant to make judgements regarding their peers.
    • mpercy
       
      This would go back to the culture in the classroom. Students would need to feel safe about expressing their thoughts about others' work and also receiving feedback about their own work.
  • students assess their own contribution
    • mpercy
       
      Is there any risk of privacy laws when allowing peer assessment? I don't share the grade of one student with any other student. Would peer assessment violate this? If it does, self-assessment would be a better option.

  • it requires a specific set of learning conditions to be present in order for it to work as intended.
    • mpercy
       
      How often would we see these learning conditions be present in our classrooms and peer grading considered effective?
  • the learner will benefit far more by completing a self evaluation
    • mpercy
       
      I like the use of self evaluation if you can get students to take it seriously. I am a little wary of peer evaluation because I don't think all students will use constructive criticism.

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

  • teachers and students
    • mpercy
       
      It is really important to get students to take ownership of their learning.
  • In addition to communicating the nature of the instructional goal, teachers must provide the criteria by which learning will be assessed so that students will know whether they are successfully progressing toward the goal. This information should be communicated using language readily understood by students, and may be accompanied by realistic examples of those that meet and do not meet the criteria.
    • mpercy
       
      How is this best accomplished? Does using an "I can" statement at the start of a math lesson accomplish this goal? I tend to think my students are not really interested in these statements. This also seems to feel like a time consuming requirement for a teacher. I feel a time crunch with just getting the lesson taught and giving kids a little work time in class.
  • Helping students think meta-cognitively about their own learning fosters the idea that learning is their responsibility
    • mpercy
       
      I need to include more opportunities for this as I think it is really important for students to take ownership of their learning.
  • ...1 more annotation...
  • However, for students to be actively and successfully involved in their own learning, they must feel that they are bona fide partners in the learning process.
    • mpercy
       
      I think this sounds right but is it attainable with all students? Or more importantly how is it attainable. Several of my students come to mind that really don't express a desire to learn Algebra or Geometry and I have not been successful in changing that attitude!

  • rubrics should be used in conjunction with other strategies,
    • mpercy
       
      Rubrics are a great tool but not necessarily the way to go all the time. Students need to be exposed to other strategies as well.
  • Perhaps the greatest potential value of classroom assessment is realized when we open the assessment process up and welcome students into that process as full partners”
    • mpercy
       
      When students are part of the process there will likely be more enthusiasm and buy in from the students.
  • Revise the rubric and try it out again
    • mpercy
       
      Would this be the point to gather student input? I would want to make sure my objectives were being met and then allow students to input.

  • Each score category should be defined using description of the work rather than judgments about the work.”
    • mpercy
       
      Does this really make a difference to the student?

  • Teachers have choices in the assessment methods they use
    • mpercy
       
      Is it important for assessments to contain all 4 types of responses?
  • Periodic interim/benchmark assessments can also serve program evaluation purposes, as well as inform instructional improvement and identify struggling students and the areas in which they struggle.
    • mpercy
       
      Our math department has been looking at the AAIMS tests for Algebra students which could be used as data to support the learning taking place.
