Grades, test scores, and levels communicate little about students’ potential or their disposition toward learning. Technology, when used with intention, can provide a more comprehensive picture of the whole child. Digital tools and products including video, images, apps, and audio can capture evidence of learning in ways that enhance and even transform the school experience.
In this edWebinar, participants will explore a three-step process for using technology to effectively capture, curate, and communicate student work with peers, families, and the community. By implementing a more authentic approach to facilitating assessment in the classroom, teachers can realize the true potential of technology in education.
This presentation will be of interest to K-12 teachers and school and district leaders. There will be time to get your questions answered at the end of the edWebinar.
