Odblog: Peer assessing with umapper?
Peer assessing with umapper?
Categories: s1 and s2We had a go at using umapper with s1 over the last couple of days. There were some problems of access which were mostly to do with our classroom in a box system, but some students managed to complete their geodart games which we were using to improve our knowledge of Brazil and its neighbours. I have another s1 class who are working on this just now and we have decided to register the users- it gives much more flexibility if students go back to the map later. Looking at one or two of the examples, it strikes me that this would be a great way to use peer assessment, perhaps through a closed system such as edmodo. The first map for some reason does not show a score, but has quite concise questions, while the second map clearly shows that the students have been improving their own knowledge of Brazil, but their questions make it difficult for others to answer- a good example of how a bit of feedback could improve the students own understanding.
Please feel free to leave a comment for the students :)
