Sounding Board - April 30
Peer Review and Evaluation for Horizon Project - April 30
Students will be given one project to evaluate. Initially, it would be good to work through
The Horizon Report
as a class group, depending on the age and maturity of your students. It would worthwhile having a discussion about the six emerging trends, getting students to consider several aspects prior to being directed to their designated projects for peer review and evaluation.
New Scholarship and Emerging Forms of Publication
Massively Multiplayer Educational Gaming
Some questions to ponder as a student group before looking at the wiki project pages.
What do you understand about the trend itself?
Why do you think the trend is important for the future?
If the actual report is written for adults, how could the project teams make the information easier for you to understand?
What would you expect to find out in each trend's section?
How will you decide if the project team has done a good job of their trend?
Students will be asked to assess the projects and provide feedback on the discussion pages of the relevant wiki project pages. Understanding that these are projects in progress (roughly at mid-point), they will be asked to assess the projects as they are now according to the criteria below.
Peer review students can be evaluated by their teachers according to the rubric that is linked below.
Students - Please be aware that this is a work in progress. The students are about half-way through their project time-line. As such, today we are evaluating their progress in the following areas:
Peer Evaluation Criteria
Quality of Content
Does the content (writing) make sense?
Can you identify any areas which need more explanation?
Pose three questions that arise from your reading - it could be questions about what doesn't make sense, questions that were not asked, or questions that you had after reading it (you would like more information).
Look at the Discussion pages of the wiki pages - what can you see going on?
Are they clear in their messages to each other?
Is there a sense of teamwork?
Does the work appear to be equally shared?
Does there appear to be any difficulties by one or more members of the team?
Presentation - Layout and Design
amount, relevance and balance of graphics and media - your opinions on that?
Recommendations for improvement?
