As we know, formative assessments are a great way to drive instruction. Using immediate, on-the-fly checks for understanding can steer a lesson in a matter of seconds, and also help teachers form differentiated groups quickly and efficiently. When we were in the “classroom”, a whiteboard was the perfect tool for this purpose. Now that we’re online, we can still use them- at whiteboard.fi.
Whiteboard.fi is a free site that allows teachers to create a class and assign each child his/her own whiteboard, all without an account. Teachers can also push their whiteboards out to students, who can then edit them. Check out this quick video to see all the neat things it can do!
