The week was really interesting as we had to think about assessment while students are working and collaborating. We were provided with some interesting experiences where teachers discussed how they worked and what they had to monitor and assess: formative assessment but also peer evaluation. It is important to see how our students work and see if they meet the criteria:
Anna Laghigna- one of the tutors- explained how she had worked with some projects and how students learnt and reflected on what they had done:
Guidelines for assessing Collaborative Learning
This is a useful guide which can help us develop rubrics and how to observe students while working together. It can be downloaded and used for assessing students better.
I really liked the post by a teacher on twitter
Interesting diaries online which have been shared
I appreciated the variety of tools used when writing the diaries and the experience which all the teachers showed while reflecting on the teaching practice: they have developed great skills and can work well also when working with PBL and assessing students who are collaborating,
My learning diary will be presented later in week 4.
