This podcast is a recording of Shelly Fryer’s presentation “Technology Projects for Enriched Assessment” at Clevelend Elementary School in Oklahoma City Public Schools on December 6, 2016. Shelly presented this for teachers at Clevelend on behalf of Oklahoma A+ Schools, which is a network of schools promoting creativity and arts integration in the classroom. Shelly has been an A+ Fellow for three years, and an elementary educator for over twenty. She is in her fourth year of teaching 3rd and 4th grade at Positive Tomorrows in Oklahoma City, which is a private non-profit school exclusively serving homeless students and their families. This is the fourth year for Shelly’s classroom of students to be 1:1 with iPads. In this presentation, Shelly explored how digital making and creating with technology devices can become a powerful window for enriched assessment in the classroom. The A+ Essentials defines an enriched assessment as one which “Evaluates achievement by allowing students to demonstrate mastery through multiple measures.” Shelly shared student technology projects from her classroom including radio shows, projects with the SeeSaw Learning Journal, WordCloud projects, photo collages, and paper slide videos.

This is an audio recording of the second of seven classes taught by Dr. Wesley Fryer on “Mapping Media to the Common Core: Vol 2.” This session focused on “Quick Edit Videos,” and is the first of two parts. The first half of this class 1.5 hour class focused on digital portfolios and is not included in this recording. Referenced links and resources are included in this Google Doc.

This is an audio recording of Dr. Wesley Fryer’s presentation, Digital Literacy Framework for Common Core, on August 28, 2013, for teachers in Wells-Ogunquit Community School District. Access presentation slides (including links to referenced videos) on SlideShare. (Be SURE, if you have not already, to watch the referenced Google Search Story “Cheryl and Morgan: Learning Independence,” which is about teachers, students and parents in Wells, Maine.) The session description was: To be digitally literate, teachers as well as students need to be able to create and share online a variety of different multimedia products. These media products can be “mapped” to your curriculum, and if you’re in a Common Core state in the United States, to the Common Core State Standards. Interactive Writing, Narrated Art, 5 Photo Stories, Narrated Slideshows / Screencasts, Quick Edit Videos, and eBooks are a few of the media products learners should be able to create and safely share online. In this session, we’ll view different examples of student media products and learn about tools and strategies for helping teachers become digitally literate as “media mappers.” We’ll also explore how librarians and instructional coaches can use the “Mapping Media to the Curriculum” website as a roadmap to help teachers and students create media products as assignments for class and as artifacts in digital portfolios.
