  • “Modernising assessment” and no-one was interested… adding “2.0” made it attractive!But the presentation is about modernising assessment.Based on a paper I wrote called “Assessment 2.0”.This is not the SQA policy!
  • Lots of commentators have commented on new types of learner.e.g. “Google generation” is anyone born after 1984 (now 24).Marc Prensky coined the most famous name... “digital native”...
  • He contrasted the “digital native” (young learners) with “digital immigrants” (you and me).
  • This is the environment that young people inhabit.If you don’t use these services, you’re kids or grandchildren will.
