Mobile Learning February 12, 2011


Assessment (and Reporting)

FETC - the clickers (and LMS) and inquiry divergence

RWL - what struck you as odd? Did any alarms bells go off? Did your skepticism meter go wild?

Polleverywhere - two questions
Grading With Games - James Paul Gee

Effective Assessment in a Digital Age outlines some of the key benefits
  • better dialogue and communication that can overcome distance and time constraints
  • immediate and learner-led assessment through interactive online tests and tools in the hand (such as voting devices and internet connected mobile phones)
  • authenticity through online simulations and video technologies and risk-free rehearsal of real-world skills in professional and vocational education
  • fast and easy processing and transferring of data
  • improved thinking and ownership through peer assessment, collection of evidence and reflection on achievements in e-portfolios
  • making visible skills and learning processes that were previously difficult to measure
  • a personal quality to feedback, even in large-group contexts

Reporting - how do we improve on this part?
