Thoughts on Assessment | blog of proximal development
"students had turned to community of peers to request feedback...none...asked me...didn’t see me as contributor in community...associated me w/ corrections & grades. At this stage, they were not ready for corrections yet...simply interested in having conversations about ideas...needed somebody to talk to & as teacher, I was not at top of list...we don’t spend enough time providing feedback for students & most of what teachers consider teaching & assessment consists of marking/correcting student work...does not engage students in rich interactive processes of talking about work & ideas. Initially, my role as teacher was limited to first presenting material (& initiating conversations) & marking work. I was absent from that rich the middle where students continued classroom conversations online by brainstorming on blogs, requesting & providing feedback & engaging in conversations about...key ideas...Instead of engaging with them, I just waited for them to submit their work."
