He set out to see if he could educate children in the worst places in the world where teachers don't want to go. He found children, when given opportunity, will seek to learn on their own.
If this doesn't make you want to go out and tackle education in another way, I don't know what will.
Enjoy and please share. …

Using Formative Assessment isn't always easy, UNLESS you have All in Learning software.
The software makes it easy to give the assessments through clickers, bubble sheets and even student Ipads, Ipods or Itouch devices.
Whether you ask bell-ringers or questions off the top of your head as you teacher OR use this for homework, a pop-quiz or formal assessment, the data you get instantly reveals whether the students have grasped the content and are ready to move on or if they need more review.
It also shows at a glance which students need help as individuals and exactly which standards they are meeting and which need more review .
It's never been easier to deliver formative assessment and get data. No more grading papers either! Now you'll have time to work on teaching students what they need to know and improving their results!
