Feedback is critical to evaluating our impact, and evaluation is critical to visible learning.
You have to be able to put the information together in order to use it properly.
One important thing that always stands out for me is what is done with the feedback once you have it.
Thank you to Doug for sharing this great website on Critical Thinking.
Jaime presented her digital project on Roll Play and uploaded it to YouTube. You will find the link below. I found interesting how she suggested taking the time to debrief students after roll play, and to remember to do an assessment of the student understanding. I will be adding this to my toolkit.
I was inspired by this Ted Talk. I like how the video states “success is in the doing”.
When imagination runs wild and creative – problem solving takes over you have valuable lessons and great brainstorming ideas. This inspired me and I thought it would be fun to share.
Check out this Video on brainstorming.

This course is providing us with the experience of a variety of instructional strategies. In this particular situation I was able to manage a discussion forum on four different topics during the period of Sept 14 – Sept 24th.
Learning styles are simply different ways of learning. Most learners use a combination of visual, auditory, and kinesthetic ways of receiving information. However, one or more of these styles is usually dominant. This dominant style defines the best way for a person to learn new information. This style may not always be the same for all tasks. Learners may prefer one style of learning for one task, and a combination of others for another task.
The concept that learning styles are a Myth really through me for a loop because it actually made me reflect and do some critical thinking. Critical self-reflection as the YouTube video implied.
It would be good to see a standard of learning styles similar to the bloom’s taxonomy. There is just way to many options out there.
What I struggled the most in the forum was finding the time. I was so engaged throughout that I found myself logging in several times a day. I also had to find time to research what everyone was posting about. I think this was a great way to learn and support each other.
I am looking forward to concentrating on commenting on posts and not worrying about facilitating too. I could get used to this though.
