FreshGrade to Host Technology for the Classroom
edWeb.net is delighted to announce that FreshGrade will be sponsoring TechTools for the Classroom, one of the largest professional learning communities on edWeb. The TechTools community hosts monthly edWebinars that help educators discover and integrate technology into the classroom to make the learning more engaging and effective for students.
The TechTools community on edWeb has been hosting edWebinars since 2010, presented by Shannon Holden, Assistant Principal at Republic Middle School in Missouri, and is an enthusiastic community of 20,000 educators all around the country and the world, who appreciate a collaborative forum for learning. We’re delighted that FreshGrade will be sponsoring this valuable online professional learning program.
To kick off their sponsorship, FreshGrade hosted an edWebinar on Developing a Growth Mindset Using Digital Portfolios on Tuesday, November 13, 2018 at 6 pm Eastern Time. Peter Briggs, a teacher at Lincoln High School in Tacoma, WA, shared how he encourages a growth mindset through regular communication with students and by promoting self-reflection in their digital portfolios. He also discussed how he has used digital portfolios for communicating student learning, and the benefits of allowing technology to support his teaching practices. The recording is available to view on-demand.
