We are proud to introduce our 47th Sunday Spotlight, featuring Kyle Kline who is a Math Curriculum and Technology Integration Specialist in Delphi, Indiana. Kyle likes using Edulastic as a multipurpose platform for stations, quizzes, exit-tickets, and test prep. He is working on developing a regional consortium for math teachers in grades 6-12, and helping teachers in his school integrate more technology in their classrooms. Outside of the classroom, he enjoys playing golf, swimming with his family and snacking on cinnamon jolly ranchers! We had fun getting to know Kyle and hope you enjoy the interview!
Math Curriculum and Technology Integration Specialist
Delphi Community Jr. – Sr. High School
16 years working in education
“Start basic with a paper assessment you already have created. Try turning that assessment into an Edulastic test. As students start taking your assessment, check out the real-time results. When they are finished, analyze your overall results, but also check with the students. What did they think about the online assessment compared to the paper assessment? Ask them how they liked seeing their results immediately… Give Edulastic a few tries. I am sure you, and most of your students, will not want to go back to paper any time soon.”

Describe your Edulastic “aha” moment.
I wanted a platform where students could practice answering questions in a PARCC style format, or complete interactive online activities with associated questions. I also wanted a platform students could use for multiple purposes, such as stations, quizzes, exit-tickets, and test prep.
