Now that students can contact teachers through formative I’d love to see that linked to email notifications. I missed a few student questions last night because they usually send questions to me via email but with the new communication option in formative they just used that, which is great. I just had to way of knowing that they were trying to reach me unless I opened formative.
I would also like to see this. As an Alternative HS teacher my students often have a nonlinear workflow. Also, I am incorporating more gamification, an this also leads to a nonlinear workflow and I have missed several students either reworking old Formatives or completing ones that the rest of the class already finished.
I would agree. That would be big for us because my students are using this feature more and more and I would like notifications, especially if my students ask at night when I don’t normally check my computer.
