Digital Learning Tools

As a teacher, I have to keep my students engaged and interested in what they’re learning. It’s also my job to make sure they are learning. I can tell if my students are mastering the material by using formative and summative assessments. Both types are important. Summative assessments are basically tests at the end of a unit or course that measures how much the students learned. Formative assessments are check points- such as little mini quizzes with no point value assigned to them. They’re used to gauge whether or not my students are mastering the material and what they need more help with. Formative assessments could be seen as taking the pulse of a classroom. If a teacher is using them, there should be no surprise test scores.53db794fb76b79467eefe848550d0f0e

I like playing games in the classroom. Most students like the competition and excitement- even adults! Two of my favorites are games on Socrative.com and Kahoot.it. Here’s an example of a Kahoot I created for my Radiography class:

I'm a Curriculum Specialist, Dental Hygienist, and Goldendoodle breeder. I want to share my passions with others so we can collaborate. I have an A.S. and a B.S. in Dental Hygiene, and a Master's in Education with a focus on Digital Learning. I have a passion for Goldendoodles, and have taken courses in breeding and genetics through AKC. I'm also a member of GANA. I have an amazing husband and three kids: Matt, Chloe, and Silas. I also have 3 dogs and a cat. Definitely a full house! When I'm not editing curriculum or fighting plaque and gingivitis, I like to hang out with friends and family (a little BBQ here and there), garden, play with the kiddos and my dogs, travel, and remodel our house (a never-ending project!). Most of all, I love to learn and share ideas. Thanks for stopping by!
