Assessment within Literacy and English

The videos on this page demonstrate some approaches to formative assessment and feedback with digital tools in Literacy and English learning. These approaches could be adapted to other subjects and we would welcome examples of this Get Involved – DigiLearn (glowscotland.org.uk)

There are a number of virtual whiteboard/notebook tools within Glow and these are useful tools for learners to demonstrate their knowledge and understanding – making them effective assessment opportunities.

We presented a webinar on the use of digital tools and platforms to support online learning and this segment looks at learning activities that could be delivered remotely and how this can be assessed and feedback delivered.

This video demonstrates the use of Jamboard to capture learners’ knowledge and understanding in an online reading context. The Jamboard allows use of ‘sticky notes’ which help learner organiser their ideas alongside others’. The text in this example is a film from the Screening Shorts catalogue available through Glow. 

This segment explores the use of G Suite and Classroom apps to deliver, assess and provide feedback on literacy and English learning.

In this video, Susan, a teacher from Glasgow, explains how she uses Forms to check learners’ understanding and then build on that to develop their knowledge.

This video looks at how OneNote could be used for online literacy and English learning, particularly around note-making, and how the educators can assess and provide feedback on this.

Assessment within Numeracy and Mathematics

The videos on this page demonstrate some approaches to formative assessment and feedback with digital tools in Numeracy and Mathematics learning. These approaches could be adapted to other subjects and we would welcome examples of this Get Involved – DigiLearn (glowscotland.org.uk)

There are a number of virtual whiteboard/notebook tools within Glow and these are useful tools for learners to demonstrate their knowledge and understanding – making them effective assessment opportunities.

 

This is an example of how O365 OneNote could be used with learners to demonstrate their understanding of number, using virtual manipulatives and annotating their thinking on their whiteboard.

Part 1 – We delivered this workshop on how to transfer Concrete Pictorial Abstract numeracy and maths teaching practice to the online environment. CPA can be supported effectively with interactive manipulatives and whiteboard/notebook tools.

Part 2 – This video demonstrates the concepts in Part 1 using Jamboard and OneNote to capture assessment evidence.

O365 also has another dedicated whiteboard tool, separate from OneNote, and this can be used in Teams calls to share thinking and understanding. The whiteboards are automatically saved in your OneDrive and can be edited and annotated to provide feedback to learners.

Book Creator is a platform external to Glow but can be effective for capturing learners’ thinking and allows them to create a meaningful end product to showcase their learning. However, it can be added to in an ongoing basis which makes it effective for formative assessment.
