Updated: Peer Assessment. Classwork, exercise book, final product or model

A peer assessment task that allows pupils to assess a peer's classwork, final product or model that they have completed. It also allows peers to set a target for improvement. Objective: Encourage pupils to create a balanced, critical view when evaluating a product. By promoting the evaluation of someone else's work, they are able to look at the product objectively without bias, particularly if the product they evaluate is not that of the person they sit next to. Assessment: It can be used to inform AoL and formally documented by a teacher, or used more readily in session by a teacher who can then recall common targets for improvement, discussing with Q&A how these could be achieved. Prior Knowledge: The criteria of the project, which will have been set by the classroom teacher or discussed in the form of a specification possibly. Expectations: Pupils should begin to create a balanced, structured argument about products in general. They should use their K&U along with their experiences to identify and set appropriate targets for themselves and their peers. Hints: These can be folded, hole punched and, with some string, tied to the product. To save on labour, the kids can do this, and it creates a simple practical element to the evaluation. Another way to do this is to print them, cut them out and glue them together. Laminate them and the pupils can then complete them with water-based markers, which can easily be wiped off. This is more time-consuming, but saves time in the lesson and saves materials in the long run

Genie Microcontroller - How 2 - Circuit Diagrams, PCB Layout and Flow charts

Genie Microcontroller - How 2 - Circuit Diagrams, PCB Layout and Flow charts

Genie Microcontrollers offer students a fantastic array of inventive opportunities to develop a broad range of projects. Students are able to use their imagination and solve real life problems with these low cost PIC's, however managing a classroom full of students who all want to develop different circuits can be a challenge.I developed the Genie how 2 book in order to give students the opportunity to independently create their own circuits with minimal teacher support.The students start by creating a basic Genie E18 circuit (I have found this to be the most versatile and best value for money). The student then use the guide to show them how to add whichever input and output components that they choose.Students can follow the guide to create a PCB layout and to create a flow chart to program their microcontroller.I have found this to be a very effective tool within my classroom and it encourages differentiation and independent learning.I hope you find the guide as useful as my students do.

'Rapid Progress' Class Activity by @TeacherToolkit

'Rapid Progress' Class Activity by @TeacherToolkit

This can be modified to suit any subject and topic. I do NOT claim this resource to be a new idea; just a strategy that works very well in the classroom that is worth sharing. This idea is perfect for sharing success criteria; and also demonstrating progress over a number of lessons. The topic can be used as a starter or plenary and feed into a main activity - using the same process - for students applying success criteria for classwork; coursework and exams over and over again. Supported with a blog-post weblink.
