#EduDuctTape 📖 Sketchnote Chapter 9

This image shows the cover of the book Educational Duct Tape: An EdTech Integration Mindset. The cover is blue and shows the title in orange lettering on duct tape. It also shows the text "Your Guide to Selecting the Right Tools for Your Classroom" and includes Jake Miller's name.The framework of my technology integration mindset comes more from the experience in Chapter 9 of Educational Duct Tape: An EdTech Integration Mindset than from any other experience that I’ve had as an educator. The way that I addressed the problem that I was having in that class 8 years ago (read the image on the cell phone 😂) lit a fire underneath me to do more with educational technology than I had previously considered. And the E + R = O equation frames it perfectly. Grab your copy of the book to learn more about this story, the mindset, and this powerful equation!

This sketchnote features the chapter title "Misbehaving Students, Honest Reflections, and An Equation." It shows a drawing of Jake looking stressed out, a cell phone featuring a Facebook post that reads "Sometimes during my 2nd period class, I legitimately consider curling up on the floor, closing my eyes, and rocking myself." and a large rectangle with the equation E + R = O. Below that equation the text "The Event + Your Response = The Outcome."

6 Tools for Self-Assessment

#EduDuctTape Question

This image shows the Educational Duct Tape: An EdTech Integration Mindset book cover as well as a 2nd book open to a page inside of the book

This is another in a series of posts based on content from my new book Educational Duct Tape: An EdTech Integration Mindset. Within the book, most chapters feature a question that a teacher might ask along with a few educational technology tools that I believe might be the right answer.

This question – How can my students self-assess their learning? – comes from Chapter 6 of the book.

It’s important to note that there are varying levels of self-assessment. In the book, I discuss the three stages of the self-assessment cycle that James McMillan and Jessica Hearn identified in their article “Student Self-Assessment: The Key to Stronger Student Motivation and Higher Achievement.” They are: self-monitoring, self-evaluation, and identifying learning targets and instructional corrective. In the book, as well as in this resource, I focus mostly on the self-evaluation stage.

The infographic below features the 6 tools that fared the best in my research. There are a handful of other tools that I mention as alternatives within the chapter, but these are the 6 that I consider the best choices for most educators and cover in greater detail within the book.

How can my students blog about their learning and growth?

Check out the image to learn a bit about 6 of my favorite tech tools for this – Quizizz, Quizlet, Kahoot, Flippity.net, Spreadsheet Conditional Formatting, and Checklists in Spreadsheet or Docs.. Plus, grab your free PDF version of this infographic by signing up for my newsletter. And, bonus, if I change my recommendations or add tools to the infographic later, you’ll get an update in your inbox!

This infographic features the text: "#EduDuctTape Question, Chapter 6. How can my students self-assess their learning? Quizizz - Students are prompted to slow down, can improve with redemption questions, can play repeatedly, and can use flashcards. Quizizz - Students are prompted to slow down, can improve with redemption questions, can play repeatedly, and can use flashcards.

Spreadsheet Conditional Formatting - Set your sheets to color in cells when the correct answer is entered! Checklists in Spreadsheets or Docs - Checking off learned skills or remembered facts taps into the power of self-monitoring."
