When I tell you that this year’s conference has been tremendous…WHEW! I’ve gotten so many nuggets of wisdom that I can’t wait to try in my classroom and beyond.
My battery drained before I could post about the workshop I attended yesterday afternoon. While the presenter taught high school, there were a lot of things in her presentation that could be adapted to younger grades. The best find from that session was a site called Video Not.es. This site allows you to watch videos and take notes at the same time. I’m not sure of its value to high school students, but graduate and doctoral students will find it to be a lifesaver! I used it last night to do MY homework!
My first session today is: Five Fantastic Features of Formative Assessment and Supporting Tech Tools. This session started with a pre-assessment that then took my responses and created a note-taking sheet using Google documents. That document was automatically e-mailed to me using autoCrat, a Google add-on. Goobric is another add-on that can be used with Doctopus to create rubrics and provide feedback. Doctopus is a virtual copy machine that copies and sends a document that you can send out, have students complete, and then you can store the document to your Google Drive.
