Learning Seminar: Instructional Design with Data in Mind - Tuesday, March 31

Tuesday, March 31, 2015

8:30–2:00

$50

How can we leverage technology to listen to the learners in your classroom? How can we collect data that informs instructional decisions?

This workshop explores formative assessment in the context of a mathematics class. Uncover opportunities for effective questioning and strategies to detect and advance student thinking. By instantly viewing student data, you’ll learn how to respond to student results and the teacher moves that push and probe student thinking.

We’ll also examine how to use data in innovative ways to improve the results of standardized tests. Join us as we discuss ways that data gathered from students can be used to inform our instruction.
