Making Thinking Visible
Tuesday, November 2 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm EDT$45.00
One of the gifts of teaching in the digital age is the ease of which a teacher can gather evidence of thinking and learning. Documentation can occur continuously allowing the assessment of student progress as well as the discovery of holes in their understanding. Each step of the thinking process can be recorded digitally using many different methods for capturing critical thinking. In this 1.5-hour workshop, participants will learn techniques to document the development and refinement of student work. We will consider how an assignment can be modified to encourage students to reveal their thought processes and reflect on what triggers modifications or changes in thinking. Each participant will tailor the techniques to their own subject area skills to fit the learning objectives of their course.
