Carrie Gentner will be presenting with the kindergarten teaching team from Chester W. Taylor Elementary School in Pasco County, Florida. Ashley Krouse and Dawn Rice will join Carrie to present “Student Self-Selected Learning Paths Using Digital Formative Assessment” on Thursday, January 16, 2020, from 10:45 to 11:15 AM.

The session will detail how many teachers embed voice and choice in a student-driven learning environment. The presenters will explain how to take your practice to the next level by designing digital formative assessments in which students receive immediate feedback and select a learning path based on data. This strategy isn’t just for secondary students. Even primary-aged students can analyze data and determine next steps.
