Key Takeaways from the CUE Conference

Catlin Tucker the Kickoff Keynote Speaker at CUE says to embrace the following realities...

You don't need to grade everything (teachers can view report page or preview in google docs)

Students are valuable resources (for example peer editing, make sure to structure this, otherwise it can be the blind leading the blind)

More writing leads to better writing (communication in a digital space, students don't even always see it as writing, they feel it's more like talking)

Grades are not the most motivating factor (if students see that work they do online guides what happens in the classroom they are more engaged and motivated)

Technology creates more visibility and accountability (teachers have a better sense of how and what kids are doing)
