  6. 6. Dweck Mindset
  7. 7. Connectivism Learning occurs as part of a social network of many diverse connections and ties- Network made possible by various tools and technologies which are not as important as the connections made possible by them.
  8. 8. Black and Wiliam •Frequent short tests are better than infrequent long ones. •New learning should be tested within about a week of first exposure. •Be mindful of the quality of test items and work with other teachers and outside sources to collect good ones. •Comments alone have more impact on student achievement than comments and grades or grades only.
