So, what’s the difference? Unfortunately, it’s not as simple as “one is the business or professional version of the other” because in all honesty, they are not the same. How to Place an Image-based Quiz in Your Blog A couple of weeks ago I published a tutorial on how to create an image-based quiz on Formative. The image-based quizzes that you create in Formative can be embedded into your classroom blog where your students can then answer the questions in the quiz. In my video embedded below I demonstrate how to create the quiz, how to embed it into your blog, and I show you a student's perspective of the quiz as embedded into a blog.

Help Make The ‘Rope Team’ Moodle Course Format A Reality – Moodle News A suggestion for a new Course Format to be included in Moodle 3.3 has been submitted to the Moodle Tracker by none other than Martin Dougiamas. The “Rope Team” Course Format, which seems to have been developed in a hackathon during the Shaping the Future Conference 2017, held this past January in a ski lodge in Alberta, not only piqued the “Moodler’s” interest, but apparently his sense of urgency. The “Rope Team” course format proposes a team-based structure for content delivery and monitoring. A 16-slide presentation accompanies the proposal.

We’ve shared some digital tools before and with the five tools that Steven shared combined with our earlier suggestions there are now 33 digital tools that we’ve uncovered that are free or inexpensive and help teachers implement formative assessment in their classrooms.
The 5 Best Times to Use Technology in Class By Patti Grayson At the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) conference this summer, there was a great deal of discussion about how this year’s sessions addressed the use of technology. While there are still plenty of “60 apps in 60 minutes” sessions that always draw a crowd (and can help us find great resources), I was glad to see the focus begin to shift in 2015. We’ve heard for a long time that technology should not be separate from instruction (C’mon kids, let’s all go to the computer lab, and “do” technology!), but should be integrated seamlessly. But for quite some time it seems, we’ve been going at it the wrong way.
