3 Must-Know Tips For Anyone Nervous About EdTech - Edudemic

3 Must-Know Tips For Anyone Nervous About EdTech - Edudemic | Edtech PK-12 | Scoop.it
Dear “Nervous To Try Something New With EdTech”: You know when you spoke with me the other day and told me that that introducing more tech into my class was fine for me because I was ‘into it’ and ‘understood’ it? That you were not going to try a new way of doing things (edtech-wise) …

Dennis T OConnor's curator insight, April 23, 1:41 AM

I've done edtech training for nervous teachers since the days of the Apple ll and the  Commodore 64. Some things never change.  I think it's not so much the fear of tech as it is the fear of losing control of a class when the tech fails (as it always will).  


The cure? Perhaps being flexible enough to have multiple fall back positions when the tech crashes and accepting the role of teacher as learner as you learn the ropes along with your students.

How To Use Formative Assessment With (And Without) Technology - Edudemic

How To Use Formative Assessment With (And Without) Technology - Edudemic | Edtech PK-12 | Scoop.it
Formative assessment tends to be a little more nebulous, and perhaps harder to nail it down with technology.

Daniel Rimmereid's curator insight, March 25, 9:05 PM

This was a neat little info graphic that gave some quick little snippets of insight into formative assessment. A point I liked was, “formative assessment is not a part of the grading process but it is a part of the instructional process.” I thought this was very helpful to think about, and a nice way to summarize the difference between formative and summative assessment. I also really like how the info graphic had ideas for formative assessment with and without technology. One of the suggestions for without technology was to have students fill out an exit ticket to allow them to leave. They had to write out one thing they learned from the lesson or some teachers can make their students summarize the lesson in a paragraph. One of my favorite technological formative assessments was when the teacher made a hashtag on twitter for students to use as a discussion forum. 

Kenny Evans's curator insight, April 13, 10:23 PM

Since I can not keep my smart phone out of my hands on a day to day basis this is a great link to ideas in incorporating technology with assessment in the classroom as well as ideas for formative assessment without technology.
