Our international base is growing and in an effort to become GDPR compliant, we’ve worked out a change to the way student accounts are created.
Students can create their own accounts on Formative by going to www.goformative.com/signup and then get a class join code from their teacher(s).
A teacher will give the students a class join code that the students will need to create an account. Kind of like an access code.
This will not affect the process of teachers creating accounts for students from the Classes page, rostering from an LMS, Google Classroom/Clever class syncing, etc.–only students creating an account on their own.
We’d really like to hear your thoughts and how this would affect you or your colleagues in the classroom. Do you think there would be any hurdles for new teachers or even young learners?
