Apply to Practice: Technologies to Support Performance- and Project-Based Assessment
Investigate the use of at least one technology, whether presented in this chapter or not, that can be used to assess performance- or project-based learning in your area of content expertise. ( English)
Identify a technology you have little experience with and find a sample to use on your own. You may be able to download freeware or trial versions of concept-mapping software, check out software or hardware from the library, or borrow from a local school. Describe the technology you selected and why. Include information on how you obtained a copy for review. (Chromebooks and using apps?)
Develop a small-scale project, such as a simple lesson activity and assessment, that uses the tool to demonstrate how you might incorporate this into your own teaching. Reflect on the process and write-up your reflections. How is the tool helpful? What limitations does it have, if any? What resources or training are required to use it fully? If you actually have students that can complete the activity and assessment, describe their reactions.
