Abstract

From educational perspectives, the ability of teachers to design a computer-based test material is believed to become a critical element to develop a breakthrough particularly in educational assessment practices in this twenty first century era. In addition, the ability of the teachers to create the digital testing is also expected to revitalize the implementation of testing for educational purposes. Though technology mediated testing provides teachers with such huge opportunities, its application remains static since the shift from traditional mode of testing to computerized testing is absolutely challenging. To back up those compelling arguments, this paper attempts to discuss four tangible opportunities for teachers to self-create computer-based testing for classroom use such as 1) teacher-student engagement in virtual learning environment; 2) testing efficiency and practicality; 3) interactive exercise for measurement; and 4) maintenance of high level of scoring accuracy. The paper will also talk about the challenges the teachers might face while creating and implementing the e-testing, namely 1) affordance of technological tools; 2) teacher-student familiarity in computer mediated learning and testing; and 3) innovation in adamant teaching and learning situation. At the end of this chapter, brief guidelines on how to administer and implement CBT for classroom use are proposed. The significance of this chapter is finally addressed to the needs of capacity building of e-testing construction and implementation for educational purposes. Consequently, there is an expectation of growing awareness of the teachers and practitioners towards the current paradigm in teachers-made test using computer in the context of classroom settings and beyond.

Abstract

Despite being widely used in writing classrooms, collaborative writing along with a digital photography task in a secondary school context receives scanty attention. To fill this gap, the present case study attempts to showcase the design and implementation of a digital photography task in collaborative writing. It looks at (1) a group negotiation process of selecting story ideas and joint story drafting and (2) collaborative meaning-making processes in story writing and creativity building through visually-mediated narrative writing. Seven groups of third-year students of 16–17 years old participated in this study. They were engaged in a collaborative project to create digital stories. The findings of the study showed that a collaborative process in narrative writing through digital photography assisted the students to get involved actively in selecting digital software and jointly generating ideas of the story. The study also exemplifies the potential use of digital photography in helping the students develop ideas and enhance their narrative writing quality. The pedagogical implication of the study is that framing a visually- and technologically-based collaborative narrative writing task encourages students’ engagement in writing processes and empowers them to become engaged storytellers.

Abstract

This article demonstrates a step by step into digital stories creation in a language classroom that teachers may adapt or adopt for their classroom purposes. At the outset, it will explore the nature of digital storytelling and empirical evidence of digital storytelling implementation across levels. Additionally, the article proposes ideas on how collaborative learning can be integrated in the making of digital storytelling. The design and implementation of pedagogical task emphasize on giving more opportunities for students to engage in the genre based collaborative digital stories project and foster their critical thinking and creativity. At the end of this article, alternative assessment is promoted to assess the learning process as well as the students’ project of digital storytelling. Providing students with scaffolded activities, I contend that every language teacher now can empower their learners to become digital storytellers.
