How do we effectively make use of formative assessment strategies in digital environments? Recent investigation undertaken by Tasmanian education leaders in the US working with Dylan Wiliam, Bill Cope, Mary Kalantzis and the Florida Virtual School suggests that there ought be no difference in pedagogy in face to face and online environments – but that technology provides us with affordances that make transformative pedagogies – such as formative assessment – more powerful, achievable and accessible, at distance and at scale when we utilise technology well. We will look at these learnings and then focus on how we are implementing transformative formative assessment practices in Tasmania through our new Canvas Learning Management System.
