Technology for Feedback and Formative Assessment

  1. 1. Using Technology for Feedback and Formative Assessment Jason Siko Assistant Professor of Educational Technology Grand Valley State University Grand Rapids, MI
  2. 2. Pedagogy Before Technology  Quality feedback has consistently been shown to be one of the most effective strategies to improve student performance (Hattie, 2009)  TeacherStudent  StudentTeacher  StudentStudent  TIMING IS IMPORTANT!
  3. 3. Feedback  Therefore, the question becomes: HOW CAN WE USE TECHNOLOGY TO HELP US GIVE AND RECEIVE FEEDBACK IN AN EFFICIENT MANNER?
  4. 4. PollEverywhere  http://www.polleverywhere.com  Allows for you to create questions that students can respond with mobile devices (cell phone, smart phone, tablet/iPad)  Various Student Response Systems (i.e., “clickers”) accomplish same result; instructions vary.  http://www.polleverywhere.com/vs for others
  5. 5. PollEverywhere
  6. 6. Twitter Chats (aka Tweetups)  Conversing in real-time or asynchronously using the hashtag (#) feature in Twitter  Allows for communication over Twitter without the need for following (i.e., ‘friending’) students  But tweets must be unblocked!  Questions and answers can come from anyone!
  7. 7. Tweetups  Simply add unique hashtag to every Tweet (e.g., #sikobio)  Hashtags are searchable  Use a free Twitter management website/app for organization (TweetDeck, HootSuite, Twubs)  Long-term Search: topsy.com
  8. 8. Example
  9. 9. Google Forms  Survey response using Google Apps for Education  Can be used for feedback (which is collected in a spreadsheet)  Can also be used for semi-automatically graded quizzes  Advanced: directly email students feedback based on results (not today, though)
  10. 10. Example  Discussion Board Survey  Practice
