Formative! has now partnered with Google for Education, and is part of the G Suite Marketplace. It is one of the most powerful and free online tools available to classroom teachers. You will create custom formative assessments for your students that will allow you to easily assess and provide immediate feedback to your students in real time. With Formative you can upload and transform documents, create quizzes, incorporate video content and images, and add links to articles, but the real power of Formative is the ability to see the progress of each of your students at the same time and quickly provide support. Formative also allows you to track your students' progress in reaching state standards and provides valuable data to see how they are progressing over time. Formative is a constantly developing platform with a growing community of educators and a large and accessible library of teacher-created assessments that you will contribute your creativity to as well. Formative works best in 1:1 classrooms where each student has access to his/her own device.

This course is applicable towards the Online Teaching Certificate and Classroom Technology Integration Certificate.

Instructor
I believe that teachers are the backbone of society, and that education plays a major role in shaping a culture’s values. I made a career change to education after four years of active duty in the army and two years working in aircraft. For the past 25-30 years, I have had the privilege of teaching in a variety of settings in public and private schools, charter schools, and over half of my career teaching overseas in international settings. My educational interests include integrated curriculum development, art instruction, classroom climate, teacher care, educational technology, and Biblical integration.
