At the heart of this project is the design of a ‘toolkit’ of a) classroom activities for formative assessment and b) professional development to support implementation of the activities in a).
The toolkit will be an online toolkit, written in English.
What do we know about how to design a ‘toolkit’ for teachers to use?
What should we consider?
- How important is the visual presentation? What works well for teachers?
- How long should it be?
- What other toolkits (or similar) do we know about. Here is one, for example.
- What do we know about ‘self-study’ materials for teachers? For example, see here for online professional development modules for teachers and here for text-based approaches to providing guidance and help for teachers when teaching ‘difficult’ lessons.
