Know Students Better: 15 Tools for Formative Assessment @tonyvincent

Know Students Better: 15 Tools for Formative Assessment @tonyvincent | Technology in Education | Scoop.it
When teachers know their students well, they can build strong connections that lead to better learning. Knowing students’ interests, strengths, and weaknesses help teachers tailor learning experiences for their students. Formative assessment is how teachers collect information about what students know, don’t know, and want to learn. Formative assessment takes many forms, including exit tickets, discussions, games, and quizzes. These kinds of informal assessments can also help teachers get to know their students as learners and as people.

There is a very wide variety of digital formative assessment tools that can be used for free (often charging for extra features). I’ve written a little about 15 of them below. Most of these tools work with any web browser, so they are great for laptops, computer labs, iPads, Chromebooks, tablets, and smartphones.

Beyond the Genius Bar: Cultivating Leadership With a Student Led Tech Team (EdSurge News)

Beyond the Genius Bar: Cultivating Leadership With a Student Led Tech Team (EdSurge News) | Technology in Education | Scoop.it
You’ve probably heard of the student-led “Genius Bar”, which is generally a team of student leaders that provide technical support for the technology devices and programs in their schools. What a great way to utilize and develop student knowledge and skills, right? I couldn’t agree more.


Busch's student tech teams have four sub-committees: the “Newcast Directors," the “iPad Consultants," the “Makerspace Mentors," and the “Cyber Squad."
But what if we took the opportunity to develop young, skilled learners a step further, and asked those student leaders to support, collaborate with, and mentor teachers and their peers with in-class technology projects? What if we asked those student learners to create informative, instructional digital content that is accessible to all? After all, many of us would agree that the students are the ones who are usually the most knowledgeable, up-to-date resources for what is the latest and greatest with technology, so why not tap into their large knowledge base and cultivate their leadership potential?

Our school here in Wisconsin did just that, and the results have been astounding. Here’s how it happened.

Eve-Line Boulle's curator insight, September 29, 2015 9:18 AM

"In its basic and simplest definition, blended learning is an instructional methodology, a teaching and learning approach that combines face-to-face classroom methods with computer mediated activities to deliver instruction."

“ Unless they have a particularly large and hungry dog, some kids just lost an excuse for not turning in their homework. Apple updated its iTunes U app on Thursday, adding a new feature that lets students turn in their homework directly from their iPad or iPhone. When students finish a book report or other assignment, the teacher will get a notification right away and see a timestamp showing when it was turned in.”

"As a teacher, you are used to create your own lessons. The xerox, Microsoft Word, and PowerPoint are your trusted companions. But how can you effectively use iPads in your lessons? The ebooks provided by publishers are mostly static and just not interesting enough for today’s students. Some educational apps are great, but finding the rights ones, figuring out how they work and getting them installed on all student devices can be a hassle. Aren’t there easy ways to create your own materials for iPad? Yes, there are! Try these:"
