A teacher at Notre Dame High School in Calgary finds that individual student response whiteboards provide a risk-free environment for students to demonstrate their learning.
- Whiteboards provide students with the opportunity to think, discuss and respond in a risk-free environment.
- This formative assessment tool allows for diversity of student responses.
- Student responses can alert teachers to any misconceptions students have, which in turn assists teachers in determining next steps in instruction.
- How might the use of mini-whiteboards increase student engagement and learning in an upcoming lesson?
