Abstract: New collaborative web-based document technology provides the opportunity to instantly collect and analyze large sets of data from multiple students, groups and class sections with speed and accuracy. Teachers can learn to use tools like Google Docs & Sites to turn traditional classroom activities into student-centered inquiry and discussion. The CFA (continuous formative assessment) model helps teachers create a classroom environment that mirrors the collaborative environment of a professional learning community. E-learn members will leave this session with numerous ideas on how to use free cloud-based collaborative tools to perform continuous formative assessments of their students so that they can adjust their instruction accordingly.
