Questions to develop understanding Questions used by teachers to prime questioning of students. Used in worksheets, prompt cards or as prompts for online AfL activities. Teacher – Tracking progress Can be printed so that teacher can assess in the class as the students are working – or when browsing work online Updates the matrix automatically E-Tools for Learning What tools can be used to aid students and staff? Use of Edmodo quizzes to assess understanding Areas for focus by teacher become clearer Analysing Progress and Reporting/Teacher feedback Level for students arises from aspects being assessed Number of criteria can be changed and marks needed for a band can be changed What next? http://stpetersca.edu20.org/ Extend Edmodo and use other online environments e.g. Use of EDU 2.0 to implement with students in higher year groups Course creation tools available Other tools to create and feed criteria to students Personalise learning Use of online tools can allow teacher to use time outside lesson to direct feedback to individuals. Use of online badges to reward students Padawan Knight Master Incentives that reflect improving ability and skill levels. Points make… Directed Improvement and Reflection Time Students identify a piece of work that they need to improve; time in class is allowed to revisit. For this to work the teacher needs to direct feedback so that the student knows what they need to work on (choice is limited to work that will have greatest effect for that student). What is next? Consolidate the work and allow for time to embedding it into schemes of work, and transfer between each key stage for the remaining units this year. Need to improve focus and communicate at different levels.
