ABOUT OTAN TRAINING: Workshop Descriptions

Workshop title Mobile Devices: Formative Assessment 
Workshop description

Workshop description:
Formative assessment helps students learn what they know and what they need to know. There are many formative assessment tools available to conduct these assessments. In this workshop, you will explore different assessment tools and decide which tools work best for you. All the tools can be accessed by students using their mobile devices. Participants will learn how to assess students learning before class, during class and at the end of class and how to share these assessments with students. Time permitting, the presenter will share tips and tricks for getting students to create their own formative assessments.

This is a hands-on workshop and you are required to bring your mobile device, charged and ready to learn.

If for any reason you cannot attend the workshop and need to cancel, please contact OTAN at your earliest convenience, but at least 24 hours in advance. (916-228-2580)
