Capturing Performance in the Classroom

Performance: Phase 2 CrossBraining App

( If you did not get a chance to read about Planning: Phase 1, click this link to check it out. Phase 1: Planning.)

 

Here is a quick recap. CrossBraining helps teachers and students capture and manage four phases of a lesson and or project.  There are three leadership roles in each phase: Reflection Leader, Capture Leader and Narration Leader. The four phases are: planning, performance, iteration and final product.    

 

Why Planning is Important

Our four phase digital storytelling app  manages, captures and shares content mastery.  Every teacher has great lessons or projects and the CrossBraining App  is a tool that helps teachers manage the delivery of those lessons. In addition,  it guides students on how to capture and personalize their learning that takes place in the lesson or project.

 

Over the next four weeks I will be walking you through the four phases of the CrossBraining App (Plan, Perform, Change, Final Product).  I will also show you videos of students going through each phase.

 

Summer EdTech Conference Choices

Summer is a great time for educators to reboot! This blog is focused on some of my favorite EdTech conferences where we can get new ideas  and meet other educators with enhanced teaching strategies and new ways to deliver engaging content. I have broken it down to National, Regional, State and Local conferences, all offering great sessions that will have an impact on your teaching and get you energized for the upcoming year.

Three Ways Digital Storytelling Supports Formative Assessment

Here are three ways that digital storytelling supports formative assessment:

 

  • Digital Media/Snapshots of student learning, while they are learning.
  • Reflections that help students pivot and make new iterations.
  • Summarizes the experience to help students review and see their growth.
