What does it mean to check for understanding? How can you collect meaningful formative assessment data? How can you organize and make sense of formative assessment data? Technology tools can make the collection of formative assessment data more efficient to save instructional time, and organize data so strategic interventions can reach students in need. This session will provide an overview of Monica’s 12 favorite #FormativeTech tools! Attendees will understand how they can make quick changes to their practice to see immediate results, and make larger changes for scalable and sustainable reform. This session will include opportunities for interactive, hands-on experiences so teachers can take on the student perspective while preparing to replicate these strategies in their own classroom.
