important-announcement

Hi Folks

I hope you are enjoying the Deepavali Festivities!

Okay, this will be a slightly longer email so please bear with me.

First some admin details

  1. Welcome to SP Aaron and Chee Seng! You are slightly off sync with the weekly online workshops, but dont worry, since they are online, you can catch up.

2. Here’s the CT Schedule for all of you from now till 2017. This is so that you can keep track of what you need to do.

3. As you all already know, SP has launched FB@Work. I hope you have signed up for it and activated your account. Personally, I feel it is more user friendly and we can communicate easily using that platform rather than using this Educator platform where communication is limited. SO, I will be setting up a group for CT participants so that we can communicate and share stuff easily. So can I please urge you to set up your FB@Work account asap as I will be soon decomissioning this site. Look out for the email that says “onepublicservice” in your SP email. Let me know if you cant find it.

Okay enough of admin. This week, we will be continuing the Assessment series and we will be looking at “Performance Based Assessment”. Do go through the workshop carefully as part of your portfolio submission, you need to design a performance based assessment and the accompanying rubrics. As usual, let me know if you have an issue. I’m here to help!
