Learning Talks take off

Since my last post describing Learning Talks as a method of assessing for understanding, several teachers have come forward with examples that fit the genre.

Students in FIB (Grade 10) English worked in pairs using an iPad and the Show Me app to record their thinking and annotations on a piece of text. In the video below, Guy Roberts explains how this process allows him to assess student's understanding in ways that are fundamentally different that using traditional methods.

Students in Chinese used Explain Everything on an iPad to record their strokes as they wrote characters and then spoke the words with proper tones.
