TODD’S TECH TUESDAY: On-line quizzes for integrated tech

A really unique idea for tech Tuesday today. You will love this idea from Mr. Kelly, an Integrated Technology teacher.

In place of a traditional pen and paper quiz, Mr. Kelly posts an online quiz with photos of students in class. Students match steps for using a belt sander, spindle sander and so on with photos of one of the students using the tool. This gives students a visual of the real equipment and provides them with fun snaps of their peers to guide them through the quiz. Students will be especially eager to complete the quiz when their turn to be featured in pictures comes up. Students with more struggle in learning the rules might be selected more often as models or might simply be given more opportunities to formally access the images.

What a smart use of technology and what a great way to assess students in an authentic way.
