Effectively assessing student learning is essential. This new online course takes a look at formative assessments and the impact they can have on student learning and student growth. Educators will look at what makes an effective formative assessment, what are effective uses, how to use the data you receive, and the best tech tools for assessment.
What are the skills your learners need to have for their future? Reading, writing, and math to name a few, right? All educators want their learners to grow and be successful, which is why every learner should be able to understand and write basic code. Coding is a new literacy that every learner will need for future success.

Teachers Know Best, a recent study contracted by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, found that less than 1 in 3 teachers are highly satisfied with current professional development offerings. Here’s an excerpt:

In interviews, teachers say that too many current professional development offerings are not relevant, not effective, and most important of all, not connected to their core work of helping students learn.
