Why? Often, schools do not give teachers room to fail. As brave educators who take risks to innovate this new teaching model, we often face criticisms from others. Hopefully, our students’ anonymous feedback will illustrate how our modern blended pedagogies provide learning equity for all students to increase students’ learning and successes.
“Using the comprehensive and auto-updated gradebook on StreamlineED [now, Sleedu.com] has been really beneficial for many students. Not only does it provide instant feedback, but it allows you to see where you went wrong on specific assignments. Personally, when I am struggling with material in other classes, I do not know what I am doing wrong because all I see is a grade. I do not know what I did good or bad. This just leaves students to struggle because they do not know what to do to ask for help. Using StreamlineED [now, Sleedu.com] has really helped me better my education. I instantly know whether I am doing something right or wrong. This helps me know what I need to change instantly. If I need to do something differently, StreamlineED [now, Sleedu.com] tells me right as I check questions. Using StreamlineED [now, Sleedu.com] has provided learning equity for all students because it allows us students to see the data from the work we have already completed. We can also go back and view our grades on certain assignments. This is so beneficial because it is not as confusing as the regular gradebook. StreamlineED [now, Sleedu.com] even allows us to redo some assignments. This really helps me because I know I have extra help provided if I need it. If we just used the regular percentage grading system, it would be very challenging to know what I am doing wrong. I would never know how to ask for help and this can sometimes lead students to give up. I really enjoy the auto-updated gradebook because it helps decrease my anxiety. I do not have to stress about when a big assignment is put into the gradebook.
