This week, Formative Certified Educators @Darcey_Teasdale@mgarcia & @d.vendramin are leading a slow chat about standards-based learning and would love for you to participate. Each day, they’ll be posting a new discussion question in the #specialized-application category of our community and inviting you to respond. I got a sneak peek of the questions and they are sure to produce some awesome conversation!
Later today, me and @rdene915 are also hosting #formativechat and are discussing one of my favorite topics, effective differentiation. If you are on Twitter, we hope you can join us live. If you are not, we’ll be posting the questions later this week in the #specialized-application category so you can participate as well!
Formative Certified Educator @Danielle_Moore is guesting hosting our #formativechat tomorrow on Twitter (4:30PM PST / 7:30PM EST) and we’d love to invite you to join us! We’ll be talking about how we can help give students a greater voice in their education and ways to let them decide the “what”, “when”, and “why” of learning! It’s going to be a great conversation (3 questions in 30 minutes) and we’d love to hear your input!
Summer’s here! We invite you to join us for #formativechat later today (4:30PM PST / 7:30PM EST) and reflect on how you used formative assessment this school year.

The questions we’ll be discussing are below and you can click here for how to participate:
Last #formativechat, we asked teachers what they’d like to improve upon in terms of their use of formative assessment and many of them shared the desire to become more efficient with it. So that’s what we are discussing this week! Join us tomorrow at 4:30PM PST / 7:30PM EST and you’ll most certainly learn some great ideas that you can take back to your classroom! Certified Educator @mlschnick is returning to guest host!

Today, @mgarcia , @brent.hall & I are starting a reading group about student badging! If you haven’t heard of student badging before, this will be a great opportunity to learn about the value that it can bring to your classroom (helping students understand learning units, tracking progress, recognizing achievement…). And if you have experience with badging, participating in our reading group will be a great way to gain new ideas and resources.
The way it’ll work is over the next three weeks, we’ll post topics in the #specialized-application category, sharing articles/resources and inviting you to respond to included follow-up questions!
This week, @Danielle_Moore@d.vendramin@jwyckoff & @kbaker are leading a special Iron Chef Slow Chat in the #specialized-application category of our Community Center! They’ll each be revealing a special ingredient (another educational app/website), sharing a recipe (how they envision using it with Formative), and inviting you to share your own ideas as well!
Don’t miss this awesome opportunity to learn new ways to appsmash and collaborate with other great educators! “Allez cuisine!”
