  • 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!
