I was recently selected as a finalist in the Interface Magazine 'Best teaching with ICT' for an activity that I previously shared on this blog. I used Google Apps in an attempt to modify behaviour in students, praising and encouraging positive examples and working on resolving negative examples. Lessons were filmed and then peer assessed using the drive and google forms - the use of forms allowed a visual way to summarise the anonymous student feedback - using it as a tool for personal and group reflection. To read more about the methods I used have a look at this blog post. To view the entry on the Interface website look here - and most importantly to vote - click here!!! Thanks for your support! :)
