Reviving Formative Assessments with 5 Easy Interactive Technologies

  1. 1. REVIVING FORMATIVE ASSESSMENTS WITH 5 EASY INTERACTIVE TECHNOLOGIES EDUCATIONAL TECHNOLOGY ORGANIZATION OF MICHIGAN CLINTON TOWNSHIP, MI 11.1.13 A’KENA LONGBENTON, EDS, PMC MACOMB COMMUNITY COLLEGE LONGA@MACOMB.EDU
  2. 2. WORKSHOP ABSTRACT Are you tired of being shocked that your students failed the exam after you’re certain that you taught them the course content? Ever wanted to know how much your students know before they take the exam? Do you want to creatively help your students study for their course exams? Well…this workshop is for you. This workshop will address formative assessment technologies and readily connect them to pedagogical practices across various disciplines. The following technologies will be introduced: Poll Everywhere, QuizBreak!, Quiz Revolution, StudyBlue, and SurveyMonkey. The technologies can be used as formative assessment tools and/or quiz previews. Instructors can use these tools in their classrooms to inform their instruction or as a guide to assist student in preparing for upcoming exams. Also, teachers can give students web links so students can assess these technologies outside of school.
  3. 3. CONTENT/FORMAT ACTIVITIES As time permits, the aforementioned technologies will be introduced in a workshop format where instructors will actively participate in technology-based instructional activities. For example, using the StudyBlue tool, instructors will engage with the Celebrity Facts online quiz. Furthermore, in this workshop, instructors will have an opportunity to witness what the aforementioned technologies look like in practice. (There's nothing worst than hearing about a concept, but never seeing it in action! :-)) Most importantly, they will be able to walk away from this workshop with applicable knowledge that will assist them in their classrooms. The facilitator is not interested in simply feeding the instructors information that they may never use, but rather offer them an authentic learning experience.

  12. 12. WORDS OF • The technologies explored promote: active and independent learning; application; creativity; critical thinking; problem solving; student engagement; and reflection—not mere comprehension. • Word of Caution: Soft skills need to be addressed when technologies are used, e.g., time management skills. There are countless technologies and distractions on the internet. If students are not instructor-guided and/or focused, then tons of unproductive hours can be spent on the web with no intellectual gains.
