#EduDuctTape Question

This post is part of a series of posts based on content from my book Educational Duct Tape: An EdTech Integration Mindset. In each chapter (aside from the first and last chapters), I pose a question that a teacher might have and suggest a handful of educational technology tools that have the potential to be the right answer.

This question comes from Chapter 3 of the book. The infographic below features the 6 tools that I recommend for quick formative assessments. There are 10 other tools that I mention within the chapter, but these are the 6 that I consider the best choices for most educators.

Stay tuned for future infographics that cover formative assessment tools that can deliver richer data (Chapter 4), be used within instruction (Chapter 11), or within videos (Chapter 12).

Need a bit more information to decide which tool is best for you? I elaborate on each of them in the book!

How can I quickly formatively assess my students’ comprehension?

This infographic is for the #EduDuctTape question "How can I quickly formatively assess my students’ comprehension?" The image shows a boy using a tablet, some books, the logos for the 6 tools, and a tablet screen with the following text on it: "Quizizz - Easy setup for live games, asynchronous assignments, and practice. Quizlet - Turn your digital flashcards into fun collaborative Quizlet Live games. Kahoot - Combine fun live games with multiple asynchronous option. Gimkit - Exciting games for students, great data for teachers. Quizalize - Differentiation, remediation, and a bunch of question types. Blooket - Super fun live and asynchronous games that your students will love."

In the book Educational Duct Tape: An EdTech Integration Mindset I revisit the topic of formative assessment across a few different chapters, but in this one, I focus on some easy-to-implement tools that provide access to lots of data that we can use to determine our next pedagogical steps.
