  • 2 Truths & 1 Lie
  • Educational Duct Tape Question: How can I leverage blended to rethink assessment to yield richer information about student learning and growth? (rethinking assessment in the digital age)
    • “We need to really think about assessment as getting into the minds of our students.”
    • In a richer assessment… students can reflect, advocate for specific feedback, explain
    • “Now, I can put that onus on the student to explain to me their learning journey. And then, each of my students becomes an individual to me instead of a same-content, same-time, same-way.”
    • “Press Record”
    • Assessment of Prior Knowledge
    • “Voice and Choice is not Individualized Instruction, it’s Individualized Outputs.”
    • “You can’t be a good writer and you can’t be a good reader until you’re good orally. But we shut down the oral in classrooms. And then we’re like ‘Oh we don’t have good writing scores or reading scores.’ ‘Uh, let me come fix that for you . . . in Flipgrid.’”
    • Holly – it may take students as much as 3 weeks to get to the point of leaving articulate, well thought out responses in Flipgrid.
    • Tools for a “Press Record” Mindset:
  • Celebration of the Adjacent Possible!

Using Screencastify Free in the Classroom!

One of the most important tools in remote learning, face-to-face blended learning, or a hybrid setting is a tool for recording videos in order to deliver content to students. While there are a handful of great options, Screencastify is one of the most commonly used, especially in gSuite for Education schools.

Check out the video below to learn about using the free version of Screencastify in your classroom!

Using Loom Pro (Free for Educators!) in the Classroom!

For years I recommended Screencastify as the best, if not only, screencasting tool for the classroom. Well, times have changed. It’s still one of the best, but it’s certainly not the only.

When more educators than ever before turned to screencasting to deliver content to their students in the Spring of 2020, many flocked to Screencastify… but many also flocked to Loom.

And now that Loom has given educators and students free-forever access to the Loom Pro plan–unlimited videos with unlimited length and more!–it’s not a surprise that many of them are trying out Loom.

Check out the video below to learn about using the free pro version of Loom within the Chrome browser (or on Chromebooks)!

#EduDuctTape Live Mini 012: Mike Feldman – Gamified Tech Coaching

In the 12th mini-episode, I talk to technology integration specialist and middle school teacher Mike Feldman about strategies–including gamification–that he used as a tech coach to motivate teachers to try new technologies in the classroom. Mike also talks about his passion for using a wood lathe to craft pens and how it benefits students when they see their teachers as makers.

Image shows Jake & podcast guest Mike Feldman together at the time of recording. Also includes the text "Mike Feldman Mini Episode: Tech Coaching with Gamification for Teachers."
