You’ll barely even notice that, by the time you’re done, you will have learned about 7 different tools for #FormativeAssessment (Pear Deck, Nearpod, Jamboard, Padlet, Mentimeter, Formative, and Classkick)!

  • 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.

  • Celebration of the Adjacent Possible!

#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."
