Talk:Commonwealth Computer Navigator's Certificate/Milestone 4/Course Structure/Archive
I'm not sure where to begin this discussion, so I chose here. There seems to be missing the idea of peer assessment. This is a very powerful learning tool for both the assessed and the evaluators. I was thinking through how we could facilitate the evaluation of peoples work as the move through the course. And if they could post their work and have other peers evaluate it based upon a provided rubric this could be a very powerful way to have students evaluate students. And to provide direct feedback and ongoing feedback... There is a good body of work that supports peer assessment. Please let me know if I should be beginning this dialogue in a different forum... I could also provide further depth if people are looking for greater detail to what I am referring...
Hi Peter - Thank you for your comment about peer assessment. If you look in Milestone 6 - at the development process, you will see in 1.4 we have peer review as one of the activities. <http://www.wikieducator.org/Commonwealth_Computer_Navigator%27s_Certificate/Milestone_6>
... a quick wikieditor tip - if you type in two brackets with 4 tildas in the middle, this will 'sign' your name against a comment - it comes out like this: (Sue 02:35, 16 April 2007 (CEST))
Sue, thanks for your feedback. And for pointing me toward the 1.4 Peer Review. Please correct me if I have misunderstood, isn't 1.4 a review of the CCNC content that is being developed? What I am suggesting is an "iDevice" that is focused toward the students as a peer review step. I have been asked (by Wayne) to develop the database module of the CCNC and given the complexity and challenges of building an understanding of database normalization and relational mathematics I believed a small assignment that could be peer reviewed (as a cohort of students works through the material) could be quite powerful. I really wanted to initiate a discussion regarding the use of peer review within a wiki based learning experience... I'll build an example soon to deepen the discussion. --Peter Rawsthorne 02:59, 16 April 2007 (CEST)
Hi Peter, I see, sorry my misunderstanding. Yes, a peer reviewed learning activity supported by an iDevice would be great. It would be useful to clarify some aspects of your vision.
An iDevice in WikiEducator? - Do you see the delivery of the course using WikiEducator, with a wiki page set up so that peers can comment? The iDevice would be a 'template' for commentary perhaps?
An iDevice in eXe? - Or maybe you (also?)mean an iDevice in eXe that sets up or links to a wiki?
Using the course materials within an LMS? - the other option is to develop your learning activity design and to implement that within a wiki environment supported by your local LMS with your student cohort?
Maybe these are all useful 'output' options for the CNCC open content?
As you suggested, an example would great to help with these discussion. (Sue 03:13, 16 April 2007 (CEST))
This is good, I am creating an example peer assessment in my wikieducator sandbox. I'll let you know once its complete. As I have deepened my understanding of CNCC I am intending this peer assessment tool to be used within the printed version of the CNCC not an online tool. -- Peter Rawsthorne 22:14, 16 April 2007 (CEST)
Use of Flash Movies
I'm curious about the use of flash movies in our content. Is what we are building targeted toward also being print media, so having flash movies may not print well? -- Peter Rawsthorne 06:54, 17 April 2007 (CEST)
- Good question Peter. Our thinking is to package the screen movies on CDROM which can be used in conjunction with the print materials. Learning ICT skills - the users will need access to a PC, but they may not have Internet connectivity. --Mackiwg 07:03, 17 April 2007 (CEST)
