Teacher's Lament

Why, oh why, did I not use the iPad to assess students during their boat-building workshop? 

I had plenty of rubrics to fill out on their daily workshop planning forms...right there in their neat little packets that used up so much paper and took so much time to put together and copy.  And did I do it every day?  Open up to page 3...and the next day, page 4...and so on...to circle the appropriate standard for each student?  nope. 

And would I have been much more likely to click on a few items on a pre-made Google survey with drop down menu choices that could later be sorted by student name, day or category, and then saved for later reference?  probably.

Darn you, short term memory!
