Facilitating Feedback using iPads with Classroom/Classwork
I found tech needed to enhance my pedagogical beliefs around feedback rather than compromising my established culture by playing with the latest thing.
Realistically I use iPads in my classroom in 3 ways:
1. Getting the work - so students are accessing the work in a time effective manner.
2. Creating the work - ensuring tasks are specific and promote creativity.
3. And now I wanted complete the work flow cycle by linking feedback loop. I have found this to be the most challenging when utilising iPads with my Year 3s. I noticed that last year when we started using 1:1 ipads I found I was missing those ah ha and celebration moments. So I thought how can I do this better...
First Strategy is Screen Mirroring with Classroom - Yes Classroom is a great tool to lock iPads but it helps me in three main ways: ACP
Accountability is key - as my students say "it puts pressure on." I can see the work flow in live time allowing me to judge how clear my instructions have been and where help needs to be given.
Check in - this is my favourite as i get to see and celebrate students work - selecting students, projecting their learning to the screen and sharing with their peers how they got the answer.
Plenary - Towards the end of lessons, screen mirroring helps me work through a plenary by connecting to the Learning Intentions. This again links back to building a feedback culture.
Strategy two - Shared keynotes through classwork: I was nervous that classwork somewhat slowed the marking process and I was not willing to sit at my desk becoming frustrated with it's clunkiness.
I was inspired at the thought of having a collaborative space for peer to peer feedback I set up a shared student keynote through classwork. Here students were able to use a learning intention checklist to reflect and provide each other with feedback.
Here is an example of completed work - here I was able to clearly see the learning intentions and explanations.
