Grading Participation: An Alternative to Talking for Points

I raise the question because I think grading contributions gets students talking for points, not talking to make points. Verbal students make sure they say something, but often without listening to or connecting with the comments of others.”

Here is an article that tries to make some sense of grading or not grading for participation in class in higher ed. What do you think? What have you tried?

Technology in the Hands of a Great Teacher
Huffington Post
I’ve brought a lot of different technologies into my high-school Physics classroom over the past 10 years, and the results have been nothing short of awesome.

Lara N. Madden‘s insight:

To all my great teachers…this article is what I am talking about all the time!! (Technology doesn’t teach, You do!) "Great teachers seek to thoughtfully leverage technology in their classes, capitalizing on all of the affordances that technology can provide. But let’s not let technology replace what it can’t, especially when what it can’t are the hallmarks of great teaching."

Flipped Classroom, Layered Learning, Using Online Content to reformat you class

So the buzz of flipped classroom is hitting higher education hard and fast. But as a parent of kids in jr. high & high school I see they have been doing this for awhile now. The idea is students come to class to create. To discuss. To become engaged.

Standard higher ed classes are lectures to hundreds of students, right? One professor lecturing all of their amazing (and I mean that seriously) knowledge to students to listen and retain, then to spit out on a multiple choice exam.

Flipped? Layered?

Think reading the content, watching the lectures online previous to coming to class, and engaging in dialogue, discussion, maybe an activity to gain insight regarding the content. Talk about the content, find relevance in the content, bring the content to life.

Layering group assignments, team-based assignments and service learning in there for students to manipulate the content.
