Engaging Students in Meaningful Ways to Demonstrate Their Learning - DIGITAL AUTHENTIC ASSESSMENT
Full Session Description (as long as you would like):
Are you looking for new ways for students to demonstrate their learning?
Do you wish to integrate technology into your classroom with free tools?
Would you appreciate fresh strategies to get your students excited about assessments?
If you answered YES to any of the above, tune-in to "Digital Authentic Assessment". Kati Searcy will focus on highly effective digital technologies to help engage students in meaningful ways to demonstrate their learning. Using resources from the Discovery Education digital library of photos and music, as well as original photos/artwork and music, students can create movies to demonstrate their mastery of the curriculum. Free online tools such as Animoto and VoiceThread can be used to create digital movies. Students can also create paper slide videos and music videos as they use their creativity as evidence of their learning. All participants will be invited to join an Edmodo group where they will be able to discuss their experiences, as well as access how-to documents and rubrics for scoring projects.
