Education faculty at MonashUniversity in Australia have been experimenting with technology-assisted feedback for years, and they have created a website with recommendations for teachers who want to try this approach to assessment themselves. The Learning with New Media project explores the use of technology in providing assessment feedback to students in subjects as far ranging as philosophy and engineering. On the project’s webpage, educators will find explanations of how to use technology for feedback, what to include, why this approach has proved to be effective, and where to find resources to get started.
If you have not already heard about or reviewed the new ISTE Standards for Education Leaders you are in for a treat. These standards were designed as the framework to support all types of leadership roles in educational environments.
