The Best Resources For Learning About Formative Assessment | Larry Ferlazzo’s Websites of the Day…

The Best Resources For Learning About Formative Assessment | Larry Ferlazzo’s Websites of the Day… | Education | Scoop.it

For those who might be new to the term, formative assessments are ongoing practices that help both the teacher and student evaluate and reflect on how they are both doing, and what changes either or both might need to make to become a more effective teacher and learner (I’d love it if someone left a comment with a better definition). I use a lot of these in my classroom, ranging from regular cloze (fill-in-the-blank) and reading fluency assessments, to “show me with thumbs,” to observations. I feel that I use them pretty effectively, but also feel that I could do a better job applying what I learn from them in the classroom.

This is a good place to begin as we need to educate teachers, students and parents with the ubiquity of digital devices.

Tech Startup of the Week: Tioki, Where Teachers Go to Network and Learn

Tech Startup of the Week: Tioki, Where Teachers Go to Network and Learn | Education | Scoop.it
The idea for Tioki, an online professional network exclusively for the education community, wasn’t happenstance, but it wasn’t planned either.

 

The company has since expanded beyond HR into a connectivity, discovery, and knowledge-sharing platform and changed its name to Tioki. Dubbed “The LinkedIn for Teachers,” Tioki’s purpose is to advance the education system by connecting all of the people who know it best, with the intention of sparking conversation and collaboration that would not likely happen otherwise.

Why Kids Must Be Taught Digital Manners Infographic

Why Kids Must Be Taught Digital Manners Infographic | Education | Scoop.it

Teaching students the importance of having and using manners is nothing new to teachers. However, what has changed is the type of etiquette kids needs today—namely, the digital kind. True, please, thank you and excuse me are still significant, but in addition to these basics, students growing up in this ever-connected, social media crazed world require much more. Concepts such as online privacy, sharing and creating a positive digital footprint through the demonstration of responsible online behaviors are just as vital.

Why schools need to lead in the use of digital technologies, not be dragged  reluctantly into the 21st century.
