Uncheatable assessments and student engagement: Real-world examples

Classroom teachers are rightfully skeptical about new ideas: Will they work? Do they solve my problems? That’s why I included testimony from real life teachers in my new book about learning authentically.

#Gratitude to my friends and fellow Apple Distinguished Educators for sharing how they use concepts from my book everyday:

•  Dan Ryder: He uses #Designthinking to leverage student curiosity as an engine for learning in his high school design and #STEM classes

• Karrin Burns: Her third graders produced their own #podcast series–on their own–interviewing astronauts, their governor, and celebrities

• Jodie Deinhammer: High school #science teacher in Texas who integrates #digitalstorytelling projects as a way to assess students–she even taught a class for a year without giving tests!

• Karen Bosch: Elementary teacher whose students publish digital poetry books

• Leah LaCrosse : Middle School science teacher whose students publish digital books as lab reports and project findings, and creates her own digital books as a customized classroom textbook and guide.

Read more about how these educators increase student engagement and create #uncheatable assessments while maintaining rigorous, standards-aligned curriculum in my forthcoming book: https://amzn.to/3mr1iIC
