    Biggest takeaway: take the focus off of the grade by not putting the grade on it…. Use the two columns on assessments to give students a chance to keep thinking and refine their thinking — so exciting. And a change I can make immediately.

    Love the suggestion of non-Kahoots. I hate Kahoots — too much noise for too little return on real info. I always skipped through the leaderboard as fast as I could…. The five times I’ve used Kahoots in my twenty-whatever years of teaching. Can’t wait to explore an alternative.

    Wondering what other fun things we can use as formative assessments…. Still wondering how we can translate all of this into grades, too…. I hate the students fixation on them, but grades are still here…
