What do you do when you want to moderate student work in a small or sole charge school?

We have been exploring how e-learning might assist us to access other teachers' opinions to help build our understanding of what each of the standards looks like.


Teachers in a range of schools have used this Voicethread to share their thinking in relation to the National Standards. The first is a piece of year 2 student writing. The second example is a piece of writing from a year 7 student in technology.The third is a piece of recall writing done by a year 5 student.

View the VoiceThread below by clicking each of the icons to hear or read what others have contributed.
Use the standards and literacy progressions to try to identify aspects within each of these examples.
The Voicethread is open, you are invited to leave your comments here too. You will need to sign up for an account, this is a fantastic tool. Read more about it on Software for Learning


This example will be used in a workshop this Wednesday so watch this space to see what we do with it. I hope to get examples of how students approached each of these problems, inserted into the voicethread. Teachers will then be encouraged to comment on the stage the student work exemplifies. Fingers crossed that it will work.
