Throughout the year I offer live webinars and online courses. The scheduling of those live events doesn’t work for everyone so I also offer some of the webinars and courses in an on-demand format.
Five Fun Formative Assessment Methods
This webinar goes beyond the typical Kahoot and GimKit games that you might already be using in your classroom. In the webinar I cover the qualities to look for in a good formative assessment and what research tells us about best formative assessment practices. Strategies shared in this webinar can be adapted for any K-12 classroom including those that don’t have computers or tablets for every student. Purchase the recording and handouts here.

Ten Search Strategies Students Need to Know!
Too often our students don’t get beyond the first few pages of search results before declaring, “Google has nothing about this!” Why? Because the average time spent on a search is just 1 minute! And the average search term only has three words!* We can help our students do better than that.
In this recorded webinar you will learn why informational searches are the hardest types of Internet searches for students to conduct. You will learn how to help students break-down complex search topics into manageable pieces and then put the whole picture together. You’ll learn how to help your students save students tons of time by thinking before searching. And you’ll learn how to develop instructional search challenge activities to use with students of any age. Purchase this recorded webinar and handouts here for $
Nice Things People Have Said About My Webinars
Thank you for a most informative and practical webinar this afternoon. Although I knew many (not all) of the points you were making, the way that you presented them offered new perspectives on how to use the strategies and I felt that your use of examples added to my knowledge base. Although I receive information from FreeTech4Teachers via email, twitter, and Facebook, I have never “attended” one of your webinars. After today, that will change. Thank your for the best hour of my day today! – Barbara O’Berry
Hi Richard, Thanks again for training. I’m starting to feel comfortable with the basics at least and as I continue using the platform, I’m sure I will catch on even quicker. When you get a chance, could I get a certificate of the hours? Thanks, my instructional technology license requires the PD hours. Thanks again, and I’m sure I will be taking another training with you.
I’d take another course from you anytime. You are very knowledgeable, and your experience in the classroom “makes it real.” Thanks so much,
Again, thank you very much for this wonderful course. I will have to train teachers in the coming year and this will be very useful.It was a very enjoyable experience and I will be on the look for more training opportunities from you.
