Demonstrating 4.5

Semester 2 – 2017

This Semester I have been exploring how I can be more responsive to learners needs and strengths as well as how I can bring my knowledge of the process for Prof, H.A and lead could be used to inform the ways in which I develop assessments and practices. This would, hopefully stand students in good stead for the coming years beyond university graduation and instil an understanding of what being a professional looks like – A continuous learner, striving for the best.

In this professional development opportunity I learnt more about Heat Mapping and this informed my decisions around how to develop a new rubric for my students.  My intention was to help them to connect with the processes that they would experience later in their career, to help them develop a stronger understanding of how the standards connect to their practice and how they can use them to help grow their own skillset.

“I’d like to further develop the rubric given to my students for each assessment.  Develop them in line with the same descriptors they have in this practicum booklet and give feedback with a heat mapped copy when I mark.  This might actually reduce the amount of marking I have.  If possible, I would also like to incorporate that heat mapping exercise in a feedback session.  The middle assignment would be perfect for this.”

During this session, it occurred to me that OneNote might be a tool I should explore in order to share the Rubrics I was going to create so that students could “Heat Map” their learning.  I set myself targets here to explore this tool and to use it’s collaborative features.

“They can then highlight on that document and we can watch that change over time.  I will be able to see their progress and use that to inform group configurations, resources, readings etc.  It could make the formative assessment process much more useful!”

 In this post I talk about the rubric I created, how OneNote helped me to share it with the students and how it informed my planning and teaching.

I also explore how having this information led me to seek alternative uses for OneNote and to extend it’s use to impact more and more to support student needs and strengths.

” Having written this post, I can see now how much I actually did attempt to use with One Note. “

 In this post I write about how the tech went wrong and how hard that can be! I reflect on he challenges of learning whilist teaching and how we must face them anyway!

We have to keep moving forward and growing. To grow, I have to be allowed to try and fail and try and win.  That’s the only way I can learn.
