|What is peerScholar?
|peerScholar is an innovative on-line pedagogical tool that supports students’ collaboration, learning and reflection. Supported by research, peerScholar allows teachers to offer their students subject-based and cross-curricular assignments that really bring learning a step further.
|Within peerScholar, a teacher can use existing or create new assignments with matching rubrics and learning criteria. Sharing assignments, addressing specific learner needs and tracking student achievement are really easy within this tool.
|peerScholar facilitates learning through 3 phases; create, assess and reflect/revise. Students first submit their assignment, then they give feedback to their peers work, and finally they reflect on and learn from the peer feedback that they receive.
|peerScholar is a multimedia-based tool that supports all available digital devices, with the flexibility to enrich learning and be used in any discipline or school level.
|peerScholar is an easy way for teachers to help students succeed while also saving time. Students receive more than just a mark within peerScholar. Rather they engage in a process of active collaboration and metacognition that supports deep learning and digital citizenship. How does peerScholar work?
|peerScholar combines student-centred learning and peer- and self-assessment, which support character education, the development of creative and critical thinking skills, collaboration and effective communication.
