AI-based Apps and Accessibility Functions on Smartphones

Ryan W. Moon Editor, Profweb

Assistive technologies are increasingly part of mainstream use, like audio books, predictive text or text production apps. I recently interviewed Rosie Arcuri, who has a great deal of knowledge of these technologies to learn more about the potential of smartphones as an assistive technology in the classroom.

Alexandre Enkerli Educational Advisor, Vitrine technologie-éducation
Andy Van Drom Editor, Profweb

Teachers spend countless hours correcting student work because feedback is critical to students’ learning process. Regrettably, an important portion of such feedback is not understood or deemed irrelevant by students, or worse yet, left unread. How can we get students to understand the important learning that happens when they interact with feedback given during assessment activities? One answer is to have them engage in the process themselves, in the form of peer assessment.

Two-Stage Assessments: Teach While You Test

Susan MacNeil Editor, Profweb

Two-stage assessment is an approach in which students first answer questions individually (Stage 1) and then discuss them in teams prior to resubmitting their answers (Stage 2). The student’s grade is determined by a combination of the scores at both stages. The advantage of this approach is that the test doesn't have to be purely summative it can also be a formative experience. Students can keep learning while they're tested.

SALTISE hosted a webinar on January 7, 2021, to present this alternative method of assessment. Various panelists shared how they have used 2-stage assessment in their own classes.

Streamlining Virtual Office Hours and Student Meetings

Andy Van Drom Editor, Profweb

At the outset of 2021, students spontaneously walking into your office to ask a quick question may seem like a distant memory. In a context where distance and hybrid courses have become prevalent, hopping on a video call with a student has become easier than ever. One pain point, however, is exacerbated online: unless you spend long, uninterrupted stretches of time in front of your screen waiting for students to reach out, setting up a virtual meeting typically requires sending several messages back and forth to find a time slot suitable for both parties. Unless you let an online scheduling tool do the work for you! Sounds alluring? This article presents the possibilities of online scheduling tools, and presents a few free options that are interesting for college teachers.
