SLOCUE Connects!

I want to tell you about a great opportunity for Ed Tech PD on the Central Coast.  SLOCUE Connects is a one day workshop at the New Tech High School in Nipomo.  The cost is a mere $20 and that includes lunch.

I will be presenting how to use Google Forms to create Formative Assessments.  You can see an example here.

Google Forms for Formative Assessment

I'm introducing my biology students to Google Apps of Education this week.  They are creating their ePortfolio websites where they will showcase projects.  They are following the tutorials on my YouTube Channel.  See the playlist for Creating a Google Site.  

Before they started crafting their websites, I asked them to watch a couple of youtube videos showing plants that move.  With my formative assessments, I'm finding students do not think plants are alive because they do not move like animals.

You can check out my formative assessment results on my website.
