Appy Hour: Formative Assessment
September 26 @ 8:30 am - 11:30 am
Cost | Free
Event Description | In this session, you’ll have an opportunity to try different web-based and tablet-enabled tools that can connect you directly with your students to use formative assessment in your classroom (and even outside of school). You will be able to determine which of the five shared tools is appropriate for your particular formative assessment goal; create an account for and utilize each of the following tools: Nearpod, Socrative, Kahoot!, Padlet and Plickers; learn from other participants (through discussion) additional ways to replace paper and pencil assessments with online tools; provide examples of classroom use of formative assessment after viewing several videos; read several articles related to the topic from professional journals/websites.
Background | The Appy Hour series is an informal, half-day workshop that takes place each month around a content-area or instructional theme. Often teacher-led, these sessions are designed to provide participants exposure to numerous free or inexpensive mobile applications, followed by time to explore how the applications can be integrated into classroom instruction.
