Keynote on Formative Assessment

I recorded some video and the audio from a keynote presentation I gave a couple of weeks ago. It turns out the video wasn’t all that useful, but I did a screencast of my presentation notes, and added the audio from my keynote to it.



Were I to do this again, I would definitely do a better job of summarizing my main points at the end, and I would probably explore more closely some of the different concrete methods through which one can do formative assessment.

Math in the Real World – Video

I’ve created a video summary of the workshop that I facilitated recently on math in the real world. You can watch it below.

My presentation slides for the original workshop are here.

Presentations for tomorrow

That’s where you come in, if you are interested.  The idea is, I’ve created a presentation, which you can access at:

You can contact me through an online form at and ask for permission to edit the presentation, and I’ll send you an invitation.  You’ll have to start by creating an account at, but that’s pretty easy to do.  Once you have the invitation, you can edit/add to/delete from the presentation.  I’ve started with a basic structure, but there’s obviously lots of room for improvement.

Here is what we have so far:
