Teachers are well aware of the valuable feedback that authentic, ongoing assessment provides; helping them individualize teaching and encouraging each unique student to develop to their full potential! However, in today’s fast-paced, high-stakes assessment world it can be challenging to know which tools to use for authentic, ongoing assessment.
View this edWebinar to learn about a variety of free Microsoft tools you can leverage in your classroom. From videos in Flipgrid to personalized quizzes in Forms to individualized assessment with Teams, you’ll learn about tools that will help you understand where your students are and how best to support them. Learn practical tips and examples for using these tools in the classroom from a teacher who uses them herself and learn about the ways these tools engage students in the process of assessment.
This edWebinar is of interest to kindergarten through high school teachers, librarians, and school and district leaders.
