1. Digital Formative Assessment (On-line Course) Winter '19

Program: Instructional Technology

Audience: Teachers

Dates: 2/4/2019 to 3/29/2019

With many of the 1:1 initiatives in the area are you finding an influx of technology into the classroom, and just don't know what to do with it all? Why not use the technology for quick checks of understanding! There are many tools today that utilize mobile, as well as Chromebook technology, to assess students quickly and effectively. Get rid of the hand graded pop quiz and replace them with a tool that will grade for you and engage the students. In this 8 week course (10-hour CTLE credit)we will examine 6 different assessment tools (NearPod, Socrative, Kahoot!, Google Forms, Formative, Quizizz) that you can quickly use for free in your classroom tomorrow. By the end of the class, I don't expect that you will use all 6 tools. However, you don't know what you don't know until you try them. Through an examination of each tool, I hope that you will find a couple that you can easily incorporate into your instruction.

2. TALKS @ Fayetteville Free Library

Program: Instructional Technology

Audience: Administrators and teacher leaders

Dates: 3/1/2019

The first steps toward change are difficult because many times we can not envision something being different from how things have always been done in the past. Join us at the FFL: Fab Lab to hear from a panel of teachers that have been doing things differently and learn from their experiences. The Fayetteville Free Library (FFL) is nationally and internationally renowned for its innovative programs, services, spaces, and collections. It has been named a Library Journal Star Library for nine years and is the home of the first library makerspace in the United States. This event will bring a panel of teachers from around the area that have transformed their instruction to allow their students to create a level of understanding that traditional lecture never accomplished. We will also have an opportunity to hear from Mike Cimino, the Director of STEAM and Making, and hear about his experiences with students who are allowed to create understanding. If there is time we will also have a tour of the Fab Lab and all that it has to offer.
