Note: the instructional order of units 5 and 6 were switched to allow Unit 5: Redesigning the Learning Space to be taught before the beginning of the school year for many of the cohort participants.
I had already done some research into how to use technology to better inform my teaching through improved assessment but this unit really took me above and beyond. There are so many awesome new technologies available to make formative assessment easier and more effective. I have had the opportunity to explore Go Formative, Pear Deck, EdPuzzle, JoeZoo, and many more. The biggest piece that runs between all these programs is that teachers can get and give instant feedback from and to students so that we can be much more nimble and effective in our teaching.
