Becky Holden talks about formative assessment in kindergarten. From notetaking on how knowledge is forming as students are learning to the importance of understanding a child’s learning path, Becky relates this topic to all ages as we discuss the best practices in formative assessment.
This Thursday, December 6 from 1-3 pm Eastern Time, Edweek is hosting an event about personalized learning. I’ll be co-hosting a panel conversation on how I help kids learn how to personalize their own learning, how we can differentiate instruction, and we’ll have an “old fashioned” tool share at 2 pm in the room.
Even if you cannot attend live, you can sign up to review the links and transcripts later. Get ready to talk about Personalized Learning.
