Technology and Assessment L&B 2013

  1. 1. Technology and Assessment Using Digital Products to Assess Deep Learning of the Common Core
  2. 2. www.drsuzycox.com
  3. 3. Assessment doesn’t have to be scary! And neither does tech
  4. 4. How do we approach this?
  5. 5. Nouns v. Verbs
  6. 6. Verbs and Nouns (Prensky) Verbs: Nouns: What do we want What tools could they use students to DO? to do it? Integrate Evaluate Produce Publish Write Collaborate Present Search Engine Kidspiration/Inspiration Google Docs Twitter Blogger Story Bird Wix
  7. 7. The list of tasks is overwhelming
  8. 8. So is the list of tools
  9. 9. Project-Based Learning Encourage Creativity Promote Doing/Making
  10. 10. ELA Common Core
  11. 11. "Just as media and technology are integrated in school and life in the twenty-first century, skills related to media use (both critical analysis and production of media) are integrated throughout the standards.”  http://www.corestandards.org/resources/key-points-inenglish-language-arts
  12. 12. “Students employ technology thoughtfully to enhance their reading, writing, speaking, listening, and language use. They tailor their searches online to acquire useful information efficiently, and they integrate what they learn using technology with what they learn offline. They are familiar with the strengths and limitations of various technological tools and mediums and can select and use those best suited to their communication goals.” http://www.corestandards.org/ELA-Literacy/ introduction/students-who-are-college-and-careerready-in-reading-writing-speaking-listening-language
  13. 13. The Manatee
  14. 14. Let’s reverse engineer that
  15. 15. Step 1: Choose a Topic Collaborate with group members CCSS.ELA-Literacy.CCRA.SL.1 Prepare for and participate effectively in a range of conversations and collaborations with diverse partners, building on others’ ideas and expressing their own clearly and persuasively.
  16. 16. Step 2: Research the Topic Teacher emphasis on multiple, varied sources  Teacher could create virtual tours or Google Custom Search Engines CCSS ELA-Literacy.CCRA.R.7 Integrate and evaluate content presented in diverse media and formats, including visually and quantitatively, as well as in words.1 CCSS ELA-Literacy.CCRA.W.8 Gather relevant information from multiple print and digital sources, assess the credibility and accuracy of each source, and integrate the information while avoiding plagiarism. CCSS ELA-Literacy.CCRA.SL.2 Integrate and evaluate information presented in diverse media and formats, including visually, quantitatively, and orally.
  17. 17. Step 3: Look Up Words www.dictionary.com www.wordcentral.com CCSS ELA-Literacy.CCRA.L.6 Acquire and use accurately a range of general academic and domain-specific words and phrases sufficient for reading, writing, speaking, and listening at the college and career readiness level; demonstrate independence in gathering vocabulary knowledge when encountering an unknown term important to comprehension or expression.
  18. 18. Step 4: Evaluate the Resources Teacher-mediated at this level “How do you know this is true?” Progressively more independent and rigorous Metrics for evaluation - e.g., Kathy Schrock CCSS ELA-Literacy.CCRA.R.7 Integrate and evaluate content presented in diverse media and formats, including visually and quantitatively, as well as in words.1 CCSS ELA-Literacy.CCRA.W.8 Gather relevant information from multiple print and digital sources, assess the credibility and accuracy of each source, and integrate the information while avoiding plagiarism.
  19. 19. Step 5: Write and Revise the Script Awareness of the organization and flow of ideas Awareness of audience and purpose  Kidspiration/Inspiration, Google Docs  CCSS ELA-Literacy.CCRA.W.6 Use technology, including the Internet, to produce and publish writing and to interact and collaborate with others. CCSS ELA-Literacy.CCRA.W.10 Write routinely over extended time frames (time for research, reflection, and revision) and shorter time frames (a single sitting or a day or two) for a range of tasks, purposes, and audiences. CCSS ELA-Literacy.CCRA.SL.4 Present information, findings, and supporting evidence such that listeners can follow the line of reasoning and the organization, development, and style are appropriate to task, purpose, and audience.
  20. 20. Step 6: Collaborate Determine most important items, order of presentation, etc. CCSS ELA-Literacy.CCRA.W.6 Use technology, including the Internet, to produce and publish writing and to interact and collaborate with others. CCSS ELA-Literacy.CCRA.SL.1 Prepare for and participate effectively in a range of conversations and collaborations with diverse partners, building on others’ ideas and expressing their own clearly and persuasively.
  21. 21. Step 7: Peer Review Feedback, requiring suggestions for improvement CCSS ELA-Literacy.CCRA.W.6 Use technology, including the Internet, to produce and publish writing and to interact and collaborate with others. CCSS ELA-Literacy.CCRA.SL.1 Prepare for and participate effectively in a range of conversations and collaborations with diverse partners, building on others’ ideas and expressing their own clearly and persuasively.
  22. 22. Step 8: Select Media Enhance the presentation Ethical practice www.creativecommons.org CCSS ELA-Literacy.CCRA.W.8 Gather relevant information from multiple print and digital sources, assess the credibility and accuracy of each source, and integrate the information while avoiding plagiarism. CCSS ELA-Literacy.CCRA.SL.5 Make strategic use of digital media and visual displays of data to express information and enhance understanding of presentations.
  23. 23. Step 9: Record the Narration Speak clearly and with inflection Decide who will say what CCSS ELA-Literacy.CCRA.SL.6 Adapt speech to a variety of contexts and communicative tasks, demonstrating command of formal English when indicated or appropriate. CCSS ELA-Literacy.CCRA.SL.1 Prepare for and participate effectively in a range of conversations and collaborations with diverse partners, building on others’ ideas and expressing their own clearly and persuasively.
  24. 24. Which tool?
  25. 25. It doesn’t matter!
  26. 26. What does this look like at the high school level?
  27. 27. What steps went into that?
  28. 28. What else? Create enhanced podcast analyzing an advertisement Maintain a book review blog (class or individual) Keep a writing portfolio website Develop an accurate wikipedia page about a topic of interest Use Skype and Google Docs to write collaboratively with authors or other students around the globe Create newscasts about current or historical events Create multiple versions of the same sotry for Twitter, Facebook, email, professional chat rooms, and articles for publication
  29. 29. What about math?
  30. 30. " “When making mathematical models, they know that technology can enable them to visualize the results of varying assumptions, explore consequences, and compare predictions with data. Mathematically proficient students at various grade levels are able to identify relevant external mathematical resources, such as digital content located on a website, and use them to pose or solve problems. They are able to use technological tools to explore and deepen their understanding of concepts.”
  31. 31. “In the elementary grades, students give carefully formulated explanations to each other.”
  32. 32. The glory of Minecraft
  33. 33. Reverse engineer THAT!
  34. 34. Grade 3 Mathematics Measurement and Data Solve real world and mathematical problems involving perimeters of polygons, including finding the perimeter given the side lengths, finding an unknown side length, and exhibiting rectangles with the same perimeter and different areas or with the same area and different perimeters. Represent and interpret data. Geometric measurement: understand concepts of area and relate area to multiplication and to addition. Geometric measurement: recognize perimeter as an attribute of plane figures and distinguish between linear and area measures. Geometry Reason with shapes and their attributes. Mathematical Practices Model with mathematics. Use appropriate tools strategically.
  35. 35. What else? Create instructional videos a la Khan Academy Use Excel or Google Spreadsheets to record real-time data, examine the influence of change using functions, and create graphic representations Model data using infographics Use GeoGebra for, well, anything e.g., re-create a picture using integrals
  36. 36. Search for Resources Hundreds of new resources for technology and the Common Core, just ask Google! Great stuff on www.livebinders.com Edutopia always has excellent suggestions, including: http:// www.edutopia.org/blog/common-core-math-high-schoolmatt-davis and http://www.edutopia.org/blog/ccss-middleschool-math-tech-monica-burns Check out www.21things4teachers.net
