At Formative (https://goformative.com), we have pledged to help all schools facing COVID-19. Because it’s the right thing to do, we’re donating FREE School Premium to teams that may need to teach virtually. If your team, school, or district may be in need, please fill out our Request Form.
The rapid transition to teaching in a virtual setting may sound very challenging, but we are devoted to making this process as simple and effective as possible. For new schools and teachers, we have created a guide to using Formative for distance, remote, and e-learning → https://community.goformative.com/virtual-classroom-with-formative. For additional help getting started, we have in-app support and searchable help articles → https://help.goformative.com.
Since 2015, Formative has been helping schools use technology to build interactive digital lessons, see live student responses, give feedback, track growth to standards, and collaborate with colleagues. As a result, our web app is already extremely popular for schools (over 10% of U.S. K-12 teachers having created accounts). Also, Formative has already been seen as a perfect solution for many online schools and virtual classrooms. Please read or share this Case Study with North Carolina Virtual Academy → http://community.goformative.com/case-studies
To help streamline further communication, Formative has begun offering free webinars to teachers with Formative accounts. Additionally, we have uploaded a recording of the webinar our YouTube page → https://www.youtube.com/goformative. We will also continue to share any updates via our twitter → https://www.twitter.com/goformative
In conclusion, it is our goal to help teachers continue to deliver quality instruction and finish the 2019-2020 school year without any loss in learning.
