Another #etmooc vlog response to Scott Haseu’s latest post. Upon reflection this one is more about questions than answers and I forgot to comment on Scott’s point regarding how we could be using recognition to encourage learning in our classrooms. I think that this is a place where technology can be really powerful. I have seen math classes where students record their thinking using flip cameras and share it later at the front of the class; MathTrain is another example of the power of technology to recognise and celebrate learning. I am still waiting to get an iPad with the Educreations app in my classroom. I think it could be an excellent way for students to demonstrate learning and be recognised for it.
