  26. 26. Some Questions for Reflection DEBRIEF How did engaging with a real person, testing with a real person, change the direction your prototype took? How did the pace feel- quick, iterative cycles- compared to how you normally learn? Design thinking is an iterative, self-directed process. Based on your learning, what would you go back and do next? What would you do over again? www.flickr.com/photos/chamz/5111287538 What principle, what tool, would you find helpful in your classroom tomorrow?

  28. 28. Effective Formative Assessment (Assessment 1. Clarifying, sharing, and understanding learning intentions and criteria for success 2. Engineering effective classroom discussions, activities, and learning tasks that elicit evidence of learning 3. Providing feedback that moves learning forward 4. Activating learners as instructional resources for one another 5. Activating learners as owners of their own learning Dylan Wiliam, Embedded Formative Assessment
