Now that ALL the kids will have computers at IHS, which is just exciting all by itself, we will have an easier way to complete exit slips. One big advantage of being 1:1 is the fact that you can gather formative assessment data quickly and efficiently.
Here is one method to communicate formative assessment data. There are other uses for this app also, but I see this as being a powerful exit ticket solution. If you don't like the this Web 2.0 tool for formative assessing, no worries. Over the next several months I will be blogging about many other options.
The app is called PADLET. I used PADLET for the first time today at a DLT meeting. Mary Montgomery created a question and we answered it online.
Here is what you need to do: (Read all directions before completing the first step)
1.) Click this link: http://padlet.com/alison_sauter/40p9aoobycsi
2.) DOUBLE Click on the PADLET screen.
3.) Type your name…or make up one.
4.) Type your favorite color.
5.) Position your text box on the screen.
So that is all there is to it! Please feel free to comment below if there is another way that you think PADLET would be helpful in your classrooms.
