  2. 2.
  3. 3. Rationale - Our motivation for re-designing our assessment task<br />Use ICT to engage students <br />Use ICT to enhance quality of learning<br />Make the most of class time due to timetable changes<br />Provide an opportunity for students to develop their oratory skills<br />
  4. 4.

  5. 5. The results <br />
  6. 6. Feedback from students<br />Student feedback – verbal, their work and survey on www.surveymonkey.com<br />10 questions on instruction sheet, tasks, ICT, learning, difficulties and improvements<br />53 of 60 students responded<br />Largely positive <br />Video and collage very popular, writing task less so<br />‘How to’ videos – helpful for majority of students<br />
  7. 7. Survey resultsQ8. What were the most enjoyable or interesting parts of the assignment?<br />“The making of the video, it was lots of fun. We had a few laughs but still did our work.”<br />“The collage and the video but I found it hard to get the confidence to actually present the speech ... once I got it I felt great and glad that I didn’t have to do it in front of the class …”<br />
  8. 8. Survey resultsQ9. Which parts of the assignment were the most difficult or least interesting? <br />Video - finding time to work as pairs, <br /> - writing transcript, <br /> - some technical difficulties, especiallysound.<br />Collage - Not hands-on enough for some, - bibliography was time consuming, - connection to written part unclear <br />Written - Challenging<br />
  9. 9. Survey resultsQ10 How could the assignment be improved? <br />Work in groups of up to 4 students for video<br />Clearer instructions on assignment sheet<br />Clearer expectations regarding quality of work<br />More time in class for research<br />Use own camera or preferred software for video<br />ICT for written task <br />
  10. 10. What we changed based on the feedback<br />Split the task into two parts <br />Wording of the tasks<br />Question for written task<br />Marking criteria<br />More sources work in class <br />More explicit instruction for written task<br />Survey questions <br />
  11. 11. Reflection: How it changed our teaching<br />Collage & Written task – need more connection between these two tasks & more scaffolding of written task<br />Less is more<br />Aware of the potential of ICT and that it extends beyond just using Word and PowerPoint.<br />Student views are important, especially in terms of developing engagement in a subject.<br />Survey questioning – Strong tool to use within the classroom but questions need to be specific.<br />
  12. 12. Future directions<br />Other topic areas in Stage 5 History, e.g. WWI & WWII<br />Cross-faculty uses – ‘How to’ videos have enabled staff from other faculties to consider using the DER laptops within their own subject areas in a more creative manner<br />The development of a platform to showcase the work of students, e.g. a Wiki, blog, or website.<br />
