#FormativeTech: Meaningful, Sustainable, and Scalable Formative Assessment with Technology, the new book by Dr. Monica Burns is now available.

NEW YORK, NY - April 18, 2017

Tech tools can transform the way teachers check for understanding in the classroom. When used purposefully, they provide a window into student thinking and make it easier to figure out who needs extra help. Formative assessment can be meaningful, sustainable and scalable when teachers have clear success criteria and use the digital devices in their students’ hands to check for understanding. 

How do teachers check for understanding in their classrooms? What does formative assessment look like in in today’s schools? It’s not about taking a test, it’s about gathering information in real-time to make sure the needs of all students are being met. #FormativeTech provides actionable information to make formative assessment meaningful (so it counts), sustainable (so it lasts), and scalable (so everyone in your school does it too).

Dr. Monica Burns is a former classroom teacher, EdTech & Curriculum Consultant and Founder of ClassTechTips.com. Monica has shared her passion for thoughtful technology integration speaking at SXSWedu, ISTE, EdTechXEurope, EduTECH, and numerous other national and international events. This is Monica’s second book published with Corwin and she is excited to continue her work supporting educators across the country this summer and during the 2017-2018 school year.

In #FormativeTech readers will find practical tips to check for understanding with technology during whole class, small group, and individual lessons. This professional learning book includes ideas for assessing project-based and inquiry-based approaches and ways to evaluate data and communicate results with families. #FormativeTech is full of Monica’s favorite tools for teachers and big ideas for any type of classroom technology.

Praise for #FormativeTech, from Dr. Robert Dillon, Director of Innovative Learning, School District of University City, "This book is an ideal read for educators looking to grow more agile in their use of data to individualize and personalize instruction." As well as praise from Jennie Magiera, Educator and Author of Courageous Edventures, “Assessment can often be seen as a four-letter-word, but Monica Burns reminds us that if done well, it can be a tool in better supporting student learning and creating student empowerment. #FormativeTech is approachable and full of 'use it on Monday' ideas.”
