    Formative Assessment Tools (ONLINE)

    In "The Fundamentals of Teaching,” Mike Bell states that "When repetition leads to long-term memories, there are physical changes in the brain. Brain memories disappear very quickly unless they are repeated. Our brains are made up of billions of nerve cells or neurons, all connected together. We form memories when some of these pathways become strengthened by being repeatedly used." This session will focus on formative assessment tools that will help your students create these pathways leading to deeper learning. PD Your Way NOTE: This course is 100% online and will take approximately 3 hours to complete. This course begins on August 15th, and participants have until August 26th to complete all required assignments and activities to receive CTLE credit.

    Back to School Breakout EDU: Digital

    You have probably heard the buzz about Breakout EDU. But have you experienced a Digital Breakout? In some ways, this form of breakout is more conducive to the "average” school room. No classroom set-up is required, students work in collaborative teams on a shared device, and there are no issues with those pesky locks! In this webinar, participants will experience a digital breakout and be informed of the steps that it takes to create one. If you are "game,” you can then sign up for a 6-hour online course where you will learn how to build your own and can get individual attention from the instructor to make it happen. Yes, there are some "canned” breakouts online, but if you want one that is customized to your class and discipline, you will gain much in creating your own. They may take some time and thought to create, but once you have done the legwork, they can be used over and over with students. They provide the same engaged learning experiences for students that traditional Breakouts involve - critical thinking, teamwork and complex problem solving.
