re thinking assessment and feedback methods using tablet devices #TAFEHE twitter feed

At Loughborough University talking about how to use blogging as an effective assessment tool, they can download or share

Should be assessed continually using RSS preferably rather than leaving until the end of the unit possibly set up email subscription assessment can be more readily peer assessed in my opinion and students are more likely to proof read work before posting

What to do that’s new 2014

I have been appointed a permanent position, and I have managed to get through the first module of my Cert Ed and I’m still here!

I have been researching different apps that I can integrate within my lesson planning and teaching to add differentiation for my learners as part of their learning experience.  I have found a few good apps; I am looking forward to trying them out soon and reflecting on how these have an impact on the students and their learning.

New year and new challenge

I now have a new teacher on my team.  I have been coordinating two courses for a few months, but up until now have been teaching them both my self, I now have another teacher on the course who is teaching some of the units I have written, this is a new experience and it has enabled me to focus on other skills of explaining my thought processes of lesson planning to another tutor, for them to deliver.

After mine and a few others have completed their micro teaches

Well I had my micro teach on the first week of micro teaches, was nervous and found I felt nervous presenting even though every day when I teach I am calm and confident! However after the peer feedback and tutor feedback and having a little reflect on my pesentation and the presentations of other I feel a lot more confident about mt teaching style.  I did recognise that I need to be able to manage timescales better and look  into ways of figuring out how long tasks may take and how I can then plan my lessons more effectively around this.

Had internal Observation today

Well I think it went well, I don’t get feedback on my lesson until the end of the week, I did involve all learners, functional skills and the like so hopefully, I think I would have changed a few things, think I had too many objectives, for future note to self will try to limit these to 3 a lesson!
