Authentic and Formative Assessment
Limited Capacity seats available

I hope to engage teachers in discussions about the concepts of formative and authentic assessments. I hope to demonstrate, through student examples, ways in which I have utilized technology in my classroom to formatively and authentically assess students in real and seamless ways. Also, I hope to explore some of the ways in which technology can simplify and transform the formative assessment process (as far as time and feedback) and drive instruction as a result.

Here is the link to my PRESENTATION!!
