Hey everyone! So the other day I was thinking about the days in the classroom when I would be swamped (extra swamped during March Madness) grading papers. I use to feel like summer could not come fast enough.
As I reflected back on those times, I realized that there may be many more educators who are experiencing that same feeling that I once had. Never fear my dear educator friends, I believe I have come across an amazing resource for you. This resource is called www.GoFormative.com and from what I can see, it has the potential to be an amazing resource for educators near and far!
The Concept: GoFormative is a website where you can create an assignment you would like to assess and you would place it on their site. Provide students access to the site to complete the assignment. Then, here is the amazing part, you can grade the assignment and have live results and feedback. Wallah!!!
What I love about this: The Messy Teacher Disorder where stacks of papers make a teacher’s desk look messy gets the noted help it needs. How? By making the assessment digital, it will free up desk space for other items such as; jelly beans, coffee, and pencils of course!
If you have tried this site, leave a comment below and let us know you like it. Show us a before and after pictures of your desk area.
That is all for now, I will be back soon to share more of the resources I find online to help you be better prepared and organized as an educator.
