This week, I have been looking at peer assessment and the use of Sportfolios as a formative assessment design within Physical Education.
This has included reflection on Module 1 and 2 within CEP 813. There have been numerous articles, and Wiggins and McTighe's (2005) work "Understanding by Design" that are reflected within my report. As well as outlining the purpose of my method of assessment, I have also discussed the learning process, what is meant by understanding and how this assessment would effect instruction within class. The report concludes with an exploration of three digital tools that I am very excited to try out in the near future.
I believe there are so many possibilities out there within technology that can enhance what teachers do in school. In addition, I feel there is a need to change people perspectives firstly to integrate more technology into lessons, especially using IPads in Physical Education. Secondly, I wish teachers would consider the importance of assessment within their teaching and learning. The three must be considered as one within planning in order to produce meaningful learning experiences.
