Know Students Better: 15 Tools for Formative Assessment @tonyvincent

Know Students Better: 15 Tools for Formative Assessment @tonyvincent | The Eighth Floor | 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.

Mary Reilley Clark's curator insight, June 5, 1:32 PM

Richard Byrne shares several great ideas here that would work in every subject area. I love that Adobe Spark works well on Chromebooks, too. I'm using Page to create a new orientation presentation for 7th grade. It's so visually appealing, and I think the zoom feature will be a great way to highlight specific parts of the library.

 

Next year I'll have an opportunity to work with an 8th grade teacher who will teach both language arts and history. I already envision several projects where all three of the Spark tools will be useful!

3D Printing in Early Childhood - Ms.Pana Says @PanaAsavavatana

3D Printing in Early Childhood - Ms.Pana Says @PanaAsavavatana | The Eighth Floor | Scoop.it
Integration into the Kindergarten curriculum was a rather loose connection, but definitely a great introduction to 3D printing. One of the Kindergarten writing units revolves around “Looking Closely” at different things and writing about them like a scientist. Many of the Kindergarten teachers like to choose leaves as one of the objects students write about, so I decided to expand this idea into the design of a 3D printed leaf. To support students looking closely at small details as well as develop fine motor skills, each class worked together to make a blown up drawing of a leaf. In order to avoid having the whole class fighting over space to observe and draw around one piece of butcher paper, I set up the class so that I had three stations for the students to rotate around. The other two stations were a Bee Bot coding station and an Engineering Design challenge with Legos (design a bridge strong enough to hold a water bottle).

Robotics Across the Curriculum For Your Youngest Learners - @KrissyVenosdale | The Eighth Floor | Scoop.it
Why is robotics awesome?  Because it can fit ANYWHERE in the curriculum.  It’s problem solving, critical thinking, cooperative learning, collaboration, play, exploration, creativity, and grit… all in one.    It’s often thought of as an afterschool program or an enrichment.  But robotics should be part of the everyday classroom.  Why? Because it has so much to offer.
