We need to rethink the way we assess learning. If this pandemic has taught us anything, it's that teachers can no longer be the fountain of all knowledge and that learning needs to take place even outside of the classroom. A big part of that learning is assessment. There are many great tools out there to help with formative and summative assessment, but in this session, we'll dig deeper into strategies to insure proper evaluation of learning beyond a multiple choice quiz.

During his 22 years in education, he’s been a teacher, virtualization coordinator and director of innovation, always focused on ensuring students drive their own learning. As director of innovation and digital learning at Eanes Independent School District in Texas, Hooker helped spearhead the launch of the Learning & Engaging Through Access & Personalization program (LEAP), which put 1:1 iPads in the hands of all K-12 students in his 8,000-student district. His unique blend of educational background, technical expertise and humor make him a driving force for this change. Hooker is the author of a six-book series for ISTE titled Mobile Learning Mindset. The books focus on each education stakeholder and the role they play in a successful mobile learning initiative. He also recently launched a self-paced online course called “The Remote Learning Coach.” In addition to his work as an author and district leader, Hooker is also a keynote speaker and consultant through his company HookerTech LLC, and an adviser to edtech startup companies. He’s been named Tech & Learning Magazine’s Leader of the Year, and is a member of the Apple Distinguished Educator class of 2013.
