This article, about the assessment of deeper learning, helps to put a few key ideas into context that connect to my action plan. Namely…
– Students benefit from having a say in how they are assessed
– The right feedback at the right time is essential
– Reflecting at the end of a learning experience can help students tie together their understanding
As my “Deeper Learning Assessment Planner” is still under construction (and maybe it should always be?), I’m finding it affirming to know that I’m not alone in seeing some of these elements as essential for meaningful project-based learning.
Now onto my final F2F presentation design. I think I’m going to explore http://www.sparkol.com/ to put together my thoughts for the world. Anyone use this tool before?
