Proposal summary

Purpose & objective

As we make the move to blended classrooms, we must understand how important the shift is to digital pedagogies. These pedagogies require that we understand how assessment must shift from multiple choice - worksheet based instruction to a more visible form of learning.

Outline

Hands- on Learning Activity: “Rethinking Digital Assessments” activity infused with technology that we use to break down the learning framework and the new thinking and strategies needed to rethink assessment.

Using the learning framework we will look at learning outcomes and the technology tools that can be used to amplify the learning process.
Looking closely at making thinking and learning visible - what that means and student examples.

2. Breakdown of student examples - unpacking and looking at the power of talking about learning.
