Online Formative Assessment : Tools of the Trade

I’ve shared this slide presentation before and I’m sharing it again as I’ve recently updated its content.
Take a look at my top 4 favourite formative assessment tools for online learning. These tools are what I call the ‘life-savers’ or the ‘MVPs’ of remote or distance learning. 

1) PearDeck

It’s definitely the most used tool during remote learning as it helped engage my students with a variety of interactive activities such as mind-map brainstorming, matching, fill-in-the-blanks and multiple choices quizzes.  

2) BookWidget

A wonderful tool any teacher could ask for! A wide variety of templates (called widgets) to choose from; online quiz, worksheet, image annotation, puzzles, word search, pair-matching etc which automatically grades and integrates with Google Classroom.  

3) Flipgrid

Another awesome tool that amplifies student’s voice! It provides a suitable platform for your learners to communicate their ideas or knowledge through audio or video and be heard by their teachers, peers or a wider community. It is constantly updating its features to match the needs of ever-evolving online learning. 

4) Jamboard or Padlet

A live collaborative whiteboard tool that really helps in my online teaching and learning. It gave me a quick glance at what they already know on a certain topic and provides a platform to share and discuss ideas in real-time. 
So, what’s yours? What are your ‘go-to’ online tools that you swear by? How did it help you with your teaching and most importantly, how did it support your learners in their learning?
