VSTE Goes Green: Over the years we’ve made an effort to reduce the amount of paper waste that gets accumulated by reducing the scope of the printed program. This year we will provide a printed conference program with only a summary schedule of the sessions available during each breakout session. For the full detailed listing of each session we encourage attendees to make use of our online schedule here which will work on mobile devices and all major platforms.

Audience: Elementary Teachers, Middle School Teachers, High School Teachers, Technology Coaches ISTE Standards for Teachers: 2D Design and develop digital age learning experiences and assessments d. Provide students with multiple and varied formative and summative assessments aligned with content and technology standards, and use resulting data to inform learning and teaching Description: You need to know what your students know. Your students need to know what they know. Immediate feedback is crucial for your teaching and your students learning. You need to collect data of student achievement but grading tests takes time and your observations of student learning are hard to quantify. Technology can help you automate your assessment process which will save you time and provide immediate feedback to you and your students. Your time can be reallocated from grading tests to using the results of the test to impact your teaching. You can quickly and efficiently determine who needs remediation, who is ready for independent practice, and who is ready for additional challenges. Our presentation will focus on traditional assessment techniques updated by computers and tablets. Our presentation will follow the explicit teaching model, presentation, guided practice, and formative/summative assessment. We will present a variety of tools to help you collect data on student achievement during each phase of teaching. Last we will provide examples of other ways to get assessment data, including digital portfolios, videos, and writing samples.
