eDoctrina Corp has participated in the DATAG Summer Conference that was held in the Saratoga Hilton, Saratoga Springs, New York, July 9-11, 2014.
The mission of DATAG is
– to provide a leadership role in identifying, cataloging, and modeling best practices in the analysis and use of data for New York schools;
– to assist schools in understanding performance assessments in order to effect changes in curriculum and instruction to meet New York educational standards;
– to support the use of data to inform and improve curriculum, in struction, and assessment, as well as to guide professional development and district comprehensive or strategic planning.
At the DATAG Conference 2014 eDoctrina’s Leah Kingston presented the interactive session “Formative Assessment”: “Collecting assessment data can be easy. Whether it’s an exit ticket, quiz or formative assessment there are many ways to collect data using eDoctrina that are both teacher and student-friendly. This interactive session allows users to see how collecting ‘on the spot’ data using a document camera or iPad can be quick and easy. Best of all, data reports are available immediately for analysis.”
Leah Kingston is a former elementary school teacher who’s passionate about helping educators learn how to use eDoctrina to help manage the overwhelming process of collecting and analyzing data. Her goal is always to make sure educators save time – and eDoctrina can be the solution.
Leah Kingston is a gifted gifted lecturer whose trainings are very impressive and useful for attendees:
“I’ve been to a lot of conferences, and to be honest, some of them are major fails. You probably get this a lot, but your training was insightful, honest, very informative, and fun. Your pacing as totally appropriate. I really liked the process of watching then doing and a little bit of both at the same time. The mini assignments really reinforced what was instructed. Your commentary of dos, don’ts, and little nuances about the program were extremely helpful, because while the guides are easy to learn from, the ‘tricks’ are what takes the program to a new level for me. The reviews were super important because it made me become cognitively aware of what I know and have the ability to answer about the program with my colleagues. I knew the training was awesome when all of my questions were answered within the first 2 hours!”
