In this episode of The Wired Educator Podcast, Kelly interviews Monica Burns about her hot new book, #Formative Tech. This is Monica’s second book. Her first, Deeper Learning with QR Codes and Augmented Reality: A Scannable Solution for Your Classroom was also published by Corwin Publications. Monica and Kelly have a great educational discussion focusing on her new book, and as always… so much more!
About the book: #Formative Tech: Formative assessment is a must for educators, but it can be difficult to juggle with all the other demands of a busy teacher’s to-do list. Fortunately, technology tools can help you work smarter, not harder. In #FormativeTech, you’ll find:
- Practical tips on how to use technology in formative assessment, including quick “pulse checks” for the whole class.
- Formative assessment strategies for small groups and individual students.
- Ideas for assessing project-based and inquiry-based approaches.
- How to evaluate data and communicate results with families.
