EC&I 833: Summary of Learning A Jeopardy-Style Game
Okay, team, I know we didn’t have to post anything for this, but I wanted to say a few things about my Summary of Learning. When I was thinking of what to do, I wanted to try something that was more mid-tech, as last semester I tried doing something a little bit more high tech with my second ever attempt at making and editing a video (watch here) and I wanted to do something different. However, with that being said, I didn’t take into account that making a Jeopardy-style game using PowerPoint would make a file too large to embed in my blog post. Before I panicked, I reached out to our EC&I833 discord group, and Raquel was quick to try to help me out. Although none of our ideas ended up working, I decided that I would upload it to a Google Drive Folder and make the folder open to anyone with the link to view. Does this work? Yup. But are there a few things that aren’t ideal? Yup.
Daniel, Darcy, Janeen, and Reidwalked us through assistive technologies this week, and used breakout rooms in a unique way, by keeping small groups together and moving the facilitators from one group to another. This was interesting in the fact that we could move through content more quickly, and there was time to have discussions in a more condensed way.
Assessment Technology & Practices (Week 3: Post 2)
In this week’s second presentation, we learned more about assessment technologies and practices and were reminded of assessment for, as and of learning and how that may look. They also discussed formative and summative assessments and walked us through a few different assessment technologies and discussed advantages, disadvantages, and some issues or problems that could arise with each one. One of the readings they included, was: 7 Smart, Fast Ways to do Formative Assessment, where the article discussed some ways to include fast formative assessments such as entry and exit-slips, interviews, self-assessments, etc. If you are looking for a good read on using assessment technologies on learning, the presentation group also provided a great resource that was easy to read and understand.
