(All teachers) Assessment that matters: Using technology to personalize learning
October 22 @ 9:30 am - 3:00 pm
Kim Meldrum, Innovation Consultant
Workshop Code: #FD1
In this full-day session we will explore the critical role that assessment has in helping create student success. We will explore the differences between assessment for/of/as learning and develop our understanding of the critical differences between formative and summative assessment. As well, through hands-on challenges we will learn how students can use technology to create and to demonstrate their learning through videos, collaborative documents, screencasts and audio recordings. You will leave this session knowing how to create videos, screencasts and more, so that you will feel comfortable having your students demonstrate their learning in different ways. This session is designed for participants with laptops and tablets.
- A laptop or a tablet
- A gmail account and password (if you do not already have one, please create one in advance and make sure you know the password)
- Apps: Book Creator and Explain Everything (if using a tablet)
Her optional follow-up workshops will be announced at a later date
