Special Delivery

Here's a very interesting blog post from Dangerously Irrelevant. It discusses providing students with delivery options for their work. The idea being that students shouldn't always have to write a paper or give an oral presentation - they could choose to create web sites, make videos, create animations, etc. This reminds me a lot of Aimee's & Phil's Career Growth work, where they are offering students a great deal of choice.

  1. I think the "information literate" person should be able to determine an appropriate presentation format based primarily upon the type and amount of information she is trying to convey. And it's likely that there would be more than one way to convey that information.

    But the idea of "content neutral" rubrics is a little weird to me. It's like saying that you could write a rubric for how well a student might use paper and pencil, and then apply that rubric to any assignment. I just can't wrap my head around that.
