Assessing 21st Century Learning: Free Live Webinar on December 20th
iStock community globe Throughout this fall, our webinar series Making 1-1 Work for 21st Century Learning has fostered discussion with education leaders from around the country and addressed key issues related to shaping learning environments that support critical thinking, complex communication, and new media literacies. During our final webinar, we will address the essential question: How Do You Assess Change? To conclude our talks, EdTechTeacher’s Justin Reich and Jean Tower, president at METAA, will host Assessing 21st Century Learning with Ann Ashworth – Associate Director of the New England Association of Schools and Colleges: Commission on Public Secondary Schools (CPSS), Paul Livingston – Superintendent of the Pawtucket Regional School District, and David Whittier – Assistant Professor at Boston University. All three participants have thought deeply about how we can ensure that technology investments and interventions can meaningfully support student learning. In particular, our discussion will focus on the idea of local assessment plans that allow schools and districts to monitor their own progress towards learning goals that are not measured by standardized tests.
