Meet Abdul Chohan
Abdul Chohan has been a proponent of mobile learning and the application to better feedback and assessment for many years. He has spoken to thousands of educators and decision-makers around the world since 2012, helping them craft their plans and assist teachers in making the transition.
In 2018, Abdul authored Digitising Effective Feedback in the Journal of the Chartered College of Teaching. In this piece, Abdul highlighted the needs around reducing teacher workload, timely and responsive feedback and building relationships between teachers and students.
Underlying the approach Abdul shares is the use of Showbie and Socrative as simple and reliable tools. Both are effective at addressing workload, feedback, and relationships–especially in a home learning environment.
We are extremely excited to support this free professional development opportunity for educators. All webinar sessions are delivered online and are hosted live by Abdul Chohan.
We look forward to supporting your home learning needs in these extraordinary times.
Let the learning continue!
Your Showbie & Socrative Team
