W10: BeSocratic: A Formative Assessment System Designed to Recognize and Respond to Free-Form Student Input--CANCELLED

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

BeSocratic is a flexible web-based system that gives instructors the ability to elicit, capture, and respond to students free form responses to a wide range of questions and scenarios such as student-generated graphs, simple diagrams and gestures. While instructional technology can be an important component of any course, the limitations of the interface often limit the types of questions and interactions that can be offered. However, there is emerging evidence that having students generate graphs and representations by hand is an important step in learning.

This workshop will focus on the use of BeSocratic where participants will have the opportunity to explore BeSocratic’s unique features by creating activities using the system and designing specific feedback for the various types of questions. Participants will need to bring their laptop to use during this workshop and will be provided with access to program for personal use.
