Here’s how we made data usable for our teachers

eSchool News

With a few clicks, we can view detailed reports on student test scores, formative assessments, progress reports from self-paced software, attendance, and so much more. I am not saying that multiple data measures are a bad thing; in fact, they can help us to differentiate instruction, personalize learning, and really meet each of our students where they are academically. After much research, it was clear that we would benefit from administering benchmark assessments.

Do we gain by debating the merits of blended learning?

The Christensen Institute

Like any effort to deliver instruction, we’ve witnessed both good and bad implementations of blended learning. And although that answer may be technically accurate to researchers, let’s be honest: “sometimes” is rarely useful to real leaders making real decisions about how to tailor instruction to their real students’ needs. Blended-learning models stand to offer more precise data that can facilitate more precise differentiated instruction.

A new framework to unlock edtech’s potential for teachers

The Christensen Institute

We expect them to differentiate their instruction, address students’ social and emotional challenges, close achievement gaps, and ensure all students are prepared for life in the 21st century. In most classrooms, technology serves primarily as an instructional resource for enhancing teachers’ lesson and assignments. But the greatest benefits of edtech, I would argue, come from saving teachers’ time and enabling new instructional models.
