Using Digital Tools For Alternative Assessment


Published on

Blended learning is on the rise not only in ELT but in other areas of education. As the number of digital natives arriving in our classrooms increase every year, blended learning becomes a path we must go along. Still, a question remains: Are teachers ready to manage and assess students through digital tools? This workshop provides participants with practical ideas as to how face-to-face learning can be combined with online tools in order to assess students’ progress.

  • One thing I learned from these slides is that good-looking young women can be bought or can be a prize for men of big size or old age, who in turn are happy to be with people who don't really want to be with them :')
    Learning comes from inside and require self-respect...
