August 7, 2012 To all my educator colleagues: As you all know, I retired in June of 2011 from my school district job as Director of Technology. I retired to spend more time learning new things to support you as you embed technology into teaching and learning in a meaningful way. I now have the time to visit districts and help with their technology-related initiatives, teach online graduate courses for the Wilkes/Discovery Masters program, and host several webinar series. Since I started the Schrockguide in June of 1995, a lot has changed. However, I am not retired from providing you with great resources and ideas to support teaching and learning! I have moved all the support information for my presentations over to Kathy Schrock's Guide to Everything, located here, to help you as you think about the practical and pedagogical uses of technology. I hope to hear from you via the new sites I am now creating. Kathy Related:  Assessment (AFL, AAL, AOL)

The Guides will be most effective in engaging underperforming students when teachers are familiar with the various sections within the resource and use texts that work for their own particular student community. Engaging students in purposeful social practices Each of the Guides uses a specific text so that teachers can familiarise themselves with the strategy and contextualise the strategy given their knowledge of their own particular student community.

Classroom Resources for Teachers Copyright © Houghton Mifflin Company. Classroom 2.0 40 Alternative Assessments for Learning When people think of assessment, pencils and bubble sheets may be the first things that come to mind. Assessment does not always have to involve paper and pencil, but can instead be a project, an observation, or a task that shows a student has learned the material. In the end, all we really want to know is that the skill was mastered, right? Why not make it fun and engaging for students as well?
