Supporting and evidencing learning using digital media

3.3    

Taking photos, making videos and creating sound recordings is easy work for anyone with access to a smartphone or tablet.

Once captured, image, video and audio files can be easily uploaded and stored online, edited, mixed with other evidence, shared for assessment and annotated for feedback.

This module looks at when, where and for whom using these media to record evidence for assessment and other purposes will improve teaching and learning.

Aim

This module will help you to promote and incorporate the use of digital media as evidence of learning in your professional practice.

Objective

After completing this module, you will be able to:

• recognise the benefits to learners and teachers of using video, audio and images to evidence learning
• identify learning contexts where these media have significant advantages over paper-based alternatives
• explore the particular benefits for inclusion and accessibility of using digital media to record evidence.

Digital Teaching Professional Framework

This module covers the DTPF component - E1a : Assessment and feedback with peer feedback illustrations

  • Use digital assessment tools to monitor the learning process and obtain information on learners' progress.
  • Use digital technologies to enhance formative assessment strategies, e.g. using classroom response systems, quizzes, games.
  • Use digital technologies to enhance formative and summative assessment in tests, e.g. through computer-based tests, implementing audio or video (e.g. in language learning), using simulations or subject-specific digital technologies as test environments.
  • Use digital technologies to scaffold learners' assignments and their assessment, e.g. through ePortfolios.
  • Use a variety of digital and non-digital assessment formats and be aware of their benefits and drawbacks.
  • Critically reflect on the appropriateness of digital assessment approaches and adapt strategies accordingly.

For the last set of questions it would have been good to know what the right answers were. It said I was wrong but did not say why.  Report this review

Seems a bit surface level at first, but does have lots of potential applications. The 'Flipgrid' website looks very interesting as an idea, but seems to require a google or microsoft account.  Report this review

There are some nice ideas in this module, but I'm not sure I agree with the initial premise that students are familiar with the technologies already. They may be used to taking photos and sharing, but how many students are familiar with editing software, and they still need to skills to be able to put the evidence together into a coherent submission. These skills would need to be supported to be developed. As notes, the biggest barrier is Awarding Bodies, so until there is a greater flexibility in way students' work can be assessed, written work will continue to dominate.  Report this review
