This recording of an OK2Ask online professional learning session from March 2018, opens in Adobe Connect. Effective formative assessment can improve student learning. Explore how the use of infographics as a formative assessment strategy can both engage students and improve learning. This workshop will help you understand what infographics are, what makes them effective, and how powerful they can be when infused into content-area instruction. Infographic creation requires the application of a range of critical skills, such as synthesis, analysis, organization, and creativity. In order to summarize and convey information correctly, clearly, and concisely, students must understand the material and their audience. Join us and learn how to get started using infographics for formative assessment. Participants will: 1. Understand what infographics are and the elements that make them effective; 2. Explore strategies for using infographics to gather evidence of student progress; and 3. Plan for student use of infographics as formative assessment. This session is appropriate for teachers at all technology levels.

Create flash cards as a quick review of any topic. Instead of using index cards, have students create their own flashcards for online review. Be sure to share a link on your class webpage for use at home. Take learning beyond rote memorization and have students use terms from their flashcards or discuss their math problems in a blog post. Use a tool like Telegra.ph, reviewed here. There is no registration with Telegra.ph, and you will get a unique URL for sharing the blog post. With Telegra.ph you just click on an icon to upload images from your computer, add a YouTube or Vimeo, or Twitter links. Create a collaborative class book for students to view anywhere using Book Creator, reviewed here. Book Creator allows users to include images, videos, and more to create multimedia interactive books.
