About this learning opportunity
This session focuses on:
TPACK (Technology, Pedagogy and Content Knowledge) - Knowledge for effective technology integration that considers technology, pedagogy and curriculum in multiple contexts.
During this full day workshop you will learn how to create Google docs, forms, blogs, and portfolios (Google Sites) as formative and summative assessments in your school. A Gmail account is required, and you will need a wireless laptop (IPads are not recommended for this workshop). A significant portion of your day will be working towards completed products (quizzes, portfolio templates, blog templates). Please bring subject or grade resources to address your classroom context.
You will see working examples of how assessment can be used in Google through...
- Using a shared Google doc for peer editing and or group projects
- Using a discussion thread within a Google doc to generate ideas, identify techniques or topics
- Inserting comments or footnotes as feedback/formative assessment
- Inserting your existing rubrics straight into a Google doc to mark
- Creating formative and summative assessments using Google Forms - true false, multiple choice, short answer, multiple answer, long answer
- Distributing your assessments (tests/quizzes) to multiple classes in multiple locations at the same time
This learning opportunity is subsidized as a result of a grant from Alberta Education to support implementation and will model technology integration in the core subject areas.
