Description

Technology integration often focuses on a digital tool rather than how it can be used to facilitate and increase student learning. This session introduces technology-enhanced formative assessment tools for enhancing student learning. Formative assessment is a research-based effective teaching strategy, documented to increase student achievement and the development of metacognitive skills - an important 21st century learning skill. This session will increase participants understanding of formative assessment and provide practice using digital tools that support its use. Formative tools used during the session will be categorized as backchannels, student response tools, and infographics/concept maps to highlight how the tool assesses student learning. Throughout this session digital tools will be modeled that allow both students and teachers to formatively assess student understanding and determine next steps in learning. Free, online tools that do not require an account will be emphasized. BYOD session.
