"How much is it worth?" "What's my mark?" These questions have plagued school for too long. Our obsession with marks have too lang distracted students, parents, teachers and administrators from our ultimate goal, learning. Many people told me, in a high school setting, marks are just too important. However, by reframing the classroom, acknowledging a student's need for meaningful feedback and using a variety of tech tools to manage, maintain and track formative assessment, learning can become the priority again. I've heard from student and parents that this pedagogical shift changes everything. Join me for a conversation around how we can reframe the marks economy and motivate students to learn for learning's sake.
