Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) October 23, 2012
School Improvement Network, the leader in teacher effectiveness resources and training, today announced its CEO and President Chet Linton will speak at the International Association for K-12 Online Learning Virtual School Symposium (iNACOL) that opened in New Orleans this week. Mr. Linton will discuss the student centered education models that have been developed to improve student outcomes in Michigan’s Education Achievement Authority (EAA), a district comprised of the state’s historically lowest performing schools.
Mr. Linton will speak on a panel with Mary Esselman, the EAA’s chief officer of accountability, equity and innovation, and other EAA partners about the importance of including embedded teacher effectiveness resources to increase student achievement in their schools.
“Teacher effectiveness is the key to improving our current education system,” said Mr. Linton. “No program or initiative, regardless of how well funded or planned, will improve our system unless it addresses teacher effectiveness. Students will assume ownership of their own learning process supported by educators with the resources to be truly effective which will enable all students to be college and career ready.”
Titled, “Four Keys to Improving Student Outcomes Using a Student-Centered, Mastery-Based System of Teaching and Learning Supported by a Blended Learning Model,” the workshop will draw on Mr. Linton’s 21 years of experience working with educators around the country to find and document the best practices in education.
School Improvement Network educator effectiveness system’s suite of tools is statistically proven to increase student outcomes by as much as 30 percent.
The iNACOL Symposium opened yesterday in New Orleans with the panel to be held today from 1:30 pm to 3:45 pm at the Hyatt Regency.
