The Symposium for DTLT611

10 Aug

All done and dusted? Not really… Once the pressure of the ‘assessment’ is gone, the actual learning can now begin ;-). Is that how are students feel? They work up to this crescendo of assessment, in my case, a brief presentation of my findings on the 3 design elements, and then it all starts to fall into place, like a jigsaw puzzle. It wasn’t my intention and I certainly wouldn’t wish it on my students but somehow I feel it’s the ‘reality’ of learning, especially where deadlines are concerned.

    Slide rocket is kinda cool! I’m also up to this level with Design Element three and it poses the question as to “how” do we know as educators whether the students are achieving? Antedotal informal evidence and formative assessment I guess. Now is the task of gathering this evidence.

      Great to see that you like Sliderocket Michelle ๐Ÿ™‚ I like tools that are relevant to my learning and teaching needs – if it works and does what I need then I’m happy to continue using it.
      As for knowing when learners know something, I feel if they start questioning or offering alternative options or viewpoints, then I know they know. The term is critical thinking, right? So I try to encourage my students to form questions and opinions, sometimes even force them by making it a summative assessment, he he, I’m a meanie ๐Ÿ˜‰
