Grading Workplace Learners Gets an F

Posted on August 6, 2008 at 9:00am 0 Comments

Posted by Dojo Learning: Adult learners in the workplace are accustomed to the the freedoms of adult life. Free will, independent thinking, and the ability to make choices are only a few of the joys of being cut loose from our constrained youth.



However, the straight jacket experiences of high school and adult control never leave us completely. We spend twelves years of our lives learning how to behave and perform for our teachers. Rebellion… Continue

Gauging your Workplace Learning through Natural Assessment

Posted on August 5, 2008 at 9:00am 0 Comments

Posted by Dojo Learning: Assessment is the process of investigating a learner’s work for evidence of understanding and competence. Typically, we learn content and then we are assessed through a test at the end of the process. But that’s not natural, assessment happens throughout the process of learning.



Let’s take the case of self-assessment. When we teach ourselves a skill or new knowledge we are constantly asking ourselves “did I get that?”… Continue

Hi Les,

My name is Alyshia Olsen; I am a 20 year old college student from Olin College of Engineering. I am a part of a group of 6 Olin College students (we're in Needham, MA, and engineering students) who has taken a year off to work on an education related project. Since you are in the 'e-learning and online teaching' group, I thought you might be interested! Our project is called AlightLearning, and this is our "short" project description:

Under the assumption that within ten years, the landscape of modern education will have fully integrated what we now define as new classroom media: video, online collaboration, open source curriculum and other web tools, we hope to pioneer a web software tool that acts as a platform for this new media, bringing the power of the web and its tools to students, teachers and parents in a secure, comfortable and innovative environment. Our goal is to have our free software at a pilot middle school by April 15th, 2009, continuing to develop and coordinate with our users to create a product that other schools want to pilot and use at their schools, while allowing individual teachers to implement this tool in their own classroom.

Our project, titled Alight Learning, is currently trying to win a competition for startup funding on ideablob.com. You can find us at http://ideablob.com/3975 . We would love your support in the form of a vote within the next couple days, but more importantly we'd love your feedback and comments. Our description on Ideablob is short, and even the one above hardly gets at many of the issues we would like to take a stab at solving, but at least it's a start.

Feel free to email me back, check out alightlearning.com, anything you like!

Thanks,

Alyshia Olsen

Additionally I´ve created the biggest group on CR 2.0 called DigiSkiils with 373 members about digitale teaching methods. Would love if you join.
I will check your platform.
