What is your Edulastic story?
My former Principal Karen Delgado gave staffs at my faculty a list of resources online to check-out as she does from time to time, Edulastic was one of them, I checked it out, learnt how to use it and was convinced it was useful to use in class, never seen such a tool in my whole life, I shared it with some of my colleagues and eventually was privileged to share it (Edulastic) also to about 300 teachers drawn from both state and private schools in a statewide teachers conference.
What tips do you have for teachers that are new to Edulastic?
I would suggest teachers who are new to Edulastic go with the SNAPQUIZ tech-enhanced type. It’s so easy and fun to create and administer. It’s like having your normal assessment in a digital form.
What is your teaching philosophy?
Teaching is learning twice for me and there are so many ways to solve a problem, but I always adopt the method with the greatest chance for success.
What inspired you to work in education?
Learning math was not so easy for me as a child, I told myself I needed to make learning math simple so I opted to get a degree in math Education from Ambrose Alli University, Ekpoma, Edo State, Nigeria, after which I went further to obtain a masters degree in Industrial mathematics.
What do you love about Edulastic?
I love everything about it, all the features are mind-blowing and fantastic! I use it for assessments especially when I really want my students to do something different from the normal, students love using gadgets to learn.
