Track: Assessment

Breakout Session IV
Thurs 4:40 pm – 5:40 pm

As learning curators, 22 graduate students (in-service teachers) addressed authentic problems (challenges) within their respective classrooms by selecting digital tools as part of implementation of interdisciplinary lesson plans. Students focused on formative assessment tools as a means to gather evidence to make improvements in the learning process. Floor plans of rooms in houses were used as metaphors by each group to contain the various digital tools that they selected. In this session, demonstration takes place of the final curations with samples of the digital assessments tools.
