Educators around the world share a common focus on preparing our students for standardized testing. The data and results that come from testing can show powerful trends about student achievement, but especially in an age when technology is constantly changing, have you ever wondered if there were other ways your students can creatively show their learning, in a timely, and efficient manner?

The real test is finding ways to truly get your students excited about learning and showing what they know in non-traditional ways. Here are a few digital tools that help teachers do just that. Let's not test, let's Celebrate Learning!

Presented by the ISTE Digital Equity Network.
