Why It Matters (Teaching Rubric)
When designing instruction it is important to provide Multiple Assessments Aligned to Goals and Learning Outcomes to measure progress toward learning objectives. With ClassFlow a teacher is given the ability to provide both formative and summative assessments while delivering content (essential competency 1.3). ClassFlow also provides a means for Presenting Instructional Content in a variety of engaging ways (essential competency 2.2).
Consider the features offered by ClassFlow and share how you might use a tool such as this to present content to your students. How could you use the assessment features? What could you do with the large community of lessons that are already made for you? How could this change the way you are using an interactive whiteboard in your classroom?
