Webinar: Playful Assessment
“Assessment” is a word we tend to associate more with “boring but reliable” than “engaging for students.” But it may be time to rethink that.
We welcome Kevin Miklasz, BrainPOP Assessment Specialist, for a discussion of the interplay between grit, interest, curiosity, student knowledge and assessment design. Kevin will shed light on the value of play in assessments of student learning, exploring the selection of playful assessment tools we currently offer, including Make-a-Map, Sortify, SnapThought and others in the pipeline!
