Better Feedback, Stronger Interactions and Faster Grading

Do you despise how much time it takes you to do your grading? Ironically, the research is clear that if you do not provide feedback, which causes students to re-think and improve their work, you are wasting your time.

Learn how you can get a free Canvas account that will help you be more effective than ever before. With Canvas, students can turn-in anything and you will have super-human abilities to provide rich feedback via voice comments, text, rubrics, voice-to-text, live video capture and attaching files. Even better, the interface for doing this transforms all of your assessments into conversations that can help deepen learning. There’s even an easy way to give students the ability to assess each other and do peer-reviews.  And of course this is mobile friendly with awesome iOS and Android Apps.

Augmented Reality, with iPads, iPhones
Learn how to make interactive "triggers" out of things like a student's art work, or a photo.  These "triggers" will allow passers by to hold their mobile device, (iPad,iPhone) up the trigger, like a QR code, and it will link to anything you want, such as a video of a student explaining what their work of art is about or how their writing was inspired. Augmented reality adds graphics, sounds,videos which will appear in your field of view and coincide with what ever you are seeing before you. Augmented reality is changing the way we view the world as information will appear magically in your field of view when you hold your mobile device in front of you changing what you see.

Open Badges Accreditation for Student Digital Leaders
A grassroots movement has led to Student Digital Leadership initiatives operating in a number of UK schools, both at primary (elementary) and secondary (high school) level. Until now there has been no mechanism to provide transferable recognition for the skills and achievements that students acquire in these roles.  Mozilla's Open Badges technology offers an opportunity for addressing this, whereby students are able to collect badges for the roles they take on and display them on selected websites - for example, social networking profiles, job sites, online CVs and more .. 
The session will describe how the SDL initiative is operating in UK schools, including the roles that students typically take on, and the design and development of the badging framework that helps define each badge/role.
